[ As I warned you'all, I use LyX as a "crutch." ;-PPP My
appologies for some obvious "unfamilarity" here. ]
Several people have informed me that pdftex _does_ do PDF
bookmarking and suggested I check out some more recently releases.
A simple "-version" on my RedHat 7.1 system reveals that I'm using
"pdfTeX (Web2C 7.3.1) 3.14159-0.13d" which is part of RedHat's tetex
1.0.7-15 RPM. I take it that is dated?
I see a pdftex here:
Is this what I want? Also, what else do I need based on my full
RedHat 7.1 install? I have thumbpdf c/o the tetex 1.0.7-15 RPM
(which I used with the aforementioned tex2pdf script), but that too
seems to be "dated." [ At this point, I'm starting to get the
feeling you TeX gurus "roll your own" TeX subsystem? ;-P ]
Flt Lt Martin was kind enough to point out that I needed hyperref as
well. Is this the bookmarking component?
URLs to HOWTOs, RTFM comments/slanders welcome. ;-PPP [ Just point
me in the right "direction" when done. ]
Ack, maybe it's time I left my "LyX crutch" and move to full-up TeX
editing (via GViM or other syntax highlighting editor). I always
figured I could in-line TeX tags with LyX, although something tells
me there are still issues with doing that? Although I still push
LyX for those "GUI dependant" fellows out there. ;-PPP
Thanx in advance ...
