I decided to send to to the general address, things work fine, Seminar
works great, just need to fix dvi viewer.


I removed the 2007 version of texlive and then reinstalled the 2010
version. I use LEd so a test worked fine and I was able to see the
document using GSview, but not the dvi viewer in LEd. I see that in
the explanation of dviout that the fonts have to be generated. So my
question is how does this process work if I want to use the dvi viewer
that came with LEd? The LEd options did work with the 2007 version of
texlive, just need to get it to work with 2010.

Thank you
