I hope someone here has some hint for me.

I have written a bigger Mathematica-Module with
Mathematica 4.1 .

Now the code shall appear as Appendix in a latex document, using
tetex under Suse Linux 9.2.

For first, I would be content, do save it as tex document,
process Latex and pdflatex on the resulting File and get
dvips, xdvi, acroread working with the results.

(next step would be coexistence of different styles
  and own defs with the notebook2e.sty etc. to build
  the Book with Mathematica-generated Texsequences in

I would like to find just a cooking reciept, what files
to get and where to copy them such that everything
works. But I didn't find these informations.

Is there any "howto" for this - refering to
tetex-2.0 (and Suse 9.2, acroread 7, X11R6)

Here, what I did so far:

I copied the Directory

somewhere, where tetex finds it
(in my case $HOME/texmf), als described for tetex1 in
the technical support FAQ of Wolfram Research. Unfortunately
in tetex2 some files/locations/configs seem to be different,
so some of the hints were not aplicable.

Now latex gererates a dvifile, then

xdvi launches kpathsea-messages like

"kpathsea: Running mktexpk --mfmode ljfour --bdpi 600 --mag 0+480/600 
--dpi 480 Math1Mono-Bold
mktexpk: don't know how to create bitmap font for Math1Mono-Bold.
and, viewing the result, it seems, that there is no pagebreak
inside a cell.

pdflatex warns:

"Warning: pdflatex (file Math1Mono-Bold): Font Math1Mono-Bold at 480 not 

viewing the result with acroread (7) pops up Messages:

"Could not find a font in the resources dictionary - using
Helvetica instead."

"Could not find or create font 'Helvetica'. Some characters may
not display or print correctly"
(indeed this happens).
