LaTeX document class files for Chulalongkorn University's Thesis

Posted on: Fri, 06/05/2009 - 14:25 By: dae

I have posted updated LaTeX class files for theses and dissertation of Chulalongkorn University. However, I have not written a manual for it yet. Instead, I provide my own dissertation as an example. The files can be used for both master and doctoral degree and also for either Thai or English language.

Thai LaTeX on MikTeX 2.7

Posted on: Mon, 02/02/2009 - 17:10 By: dae

I haven't write any paper since about last 6 months. That covers the period when I changed my PC. That's a good time to update my MikTeX installation. Now, with MikTeX 2.7 in hand, I can review again the process of installing Thai language support.

-- side note -- You can look at my detailed previous entry here. There contains the information to install Thai language in MikTeX 2.6 and 2.5. The process is very similar to that of 2.7 -- end side note --

Mini-HOWTO: Thai Language Support for LaTeX in Windows, using MiKTeX 2.5 (and 2.6 and 2.7)

--- updated ---

  • MikTeX 2.6 I have tried this also on MiKTeX 2.6 and everything works just fine, except that some files have to be put on different directory, see the bottom of the article
  • MikTeX 2.7 I also tried this on MikTeX 2.7 and the step is still the same as 2.6.
  • I also added a figure roughly showing what you have to do, exclude the modification to the existing miktex file.

LaTeX is a de facto standard for most academic publications. Just like an html, a LaTeX document is a plain text file which could be edited by any text editor of our choice. Some editors stand out for being tailored specifically for LaTeX. One nice free (as in a free beer, but not quite as in Free Speech) is LEd (LaTeX Editor). However, LEd lacks one tiny feature that I need most.

Another embedded subset problem

Posted on: Thu, 02/22/2007 - 14:02 By: dae

In my latex installation, \bigcup produces pdf using F73 fonts!!!, it is Type 3 and I don't know how to make it become embedded subset.


The way to fix this problem is to use the option [cmex10] for the amsmath package. It is stated in the new version (1.7) of the IEEE transaction template by Michael Shell.

In short, just use

Writing a latex document differs much from any other word processing program. It is just like writing a program. I feel much better when there is an IDE for a particular language I am using. Agreed, many can go without IDE. Take Mr. Wood, for example, he always babbling teases me and said that emacs or vi is the best. Well, not for me. Those editors are nice but that is not enough. Though emacs is easily extensible, I don't want to spend my time there. EditPlus is also nice, I used it to write latex for my master thesis but that is also not enough.

Figure in pdfLaTeX finally

ในที่สุดก็หาเจอตัวเนียน ๆ ... นี่เลย IPE interface หน้าตา่แปลก ๆ หน่อย แต่จะคล้าย ๆ กับ xfig, jfig, winfig. ตัว concept จะเหมือน ๆ กัน ที่เด่นสุด ๆ คือ มัน export ออกมาเป็น pdf ได้อย่าง perfect, font นี่เป็น type 1 แถมขนาดก็ crop ให้เท่ากับขนาดของ drawing และเป็น vector ด้วย ไม่ใช่ rasterize

format input ที่รับมันบอกว่าเปิด eps,ps,pdf ได้ แต่ว่าลองเอามาเปิดกลับไม่ได้สักอัน ต้องใช้อันที่ ipe เป็นคน save มาถึงจะใช้ได้... แต่.. แต่.. นี่เลย มันให้ figtoipe มาให้ โห.. เนียนสุด ๆ แปลง fig เป็น format ของมันไ้ด้ (เสียดายไม่มี ipetofig)

อึม ๆ หันมาใช้ pdflatex กันเถอะ

ปัญหามีแค่ตอน includegraphics


อึม ๆ โดยรวม ๆ แล้วก็มันใช้ได้เหมือนกับ latex ทุก ๆ อย่าง ต่างกันหน่อยตรงเวลา includegraphics ให้ใช้ practice ใหม่ ไม่ต้องใส่ extension ของไฟล์ และ file ที่ include ต้องเป็น pdf ไฟล์ (eps ใช้ไม่ได้)

ถ้าไม่ใส่ extension pdflatex มันจะหา .pdf เป็น default อยู่แล้ว อ้อ ๆ เห็นว่าใช้ .jpg ได้ด้วยเลยทันที

หัดใช้ \usepackage{hyperref} ด้วย มันจะทำ link ใน pdf file ให้อัตโนมัติ

ICRA, finally.. (fighting with jfig, eps, gs, etc.)

Posted on: Tue, 12/14/2004 - 12:07 By: dae

ICRA is almost finished and so is the deadline. We still doing a last proofreading. However, there are a lots of problem in preparing a PDF. First, IEEE requires that all font is embedded. There are some problem in my Distiller, I can not make the .joboptions file from IEEE to work with my Distiller. It keep s saying that the font "Times-Roman" can not be found in the system. I change to GSView to convert my ps to pdf but still, the result pdf does not have "Times-Roman" embedded in.
