[tex-live] Latex generates ugly dvi fonts with evince.

This is wellknown because evince does not know about the TeX fonts. Use Xdvi instead (it comes with TL).

(1) is there any reason why you are previewing in DVI instead of PDF?

I also used to use the dvi route because then I could use source specials so I can use forward and backward search.

Nowadays modern Evince versions know about synctex and I simply use that with pdflatex and PDF output.

I do not see any reason to use DVI as a preview format anymore.

Subject: [tex-live] Latex generates ugly dvi fonts with evince.


The new texlive 2013 was installed in my workstation, rhel6.
When dvi files was generated by latex, all fonts in the dvi files opened with evince were ugly.
You can find the attached file.
Interestingly, when they were converted to pdf or ps files by using dvipdf or dvips,
they looked o.k. but only dvi files were bad.
How can I fix it?

Thank you in advance.
