Thanks Michael,

Now, we need a Python Guru who explains what happens when PyX calls
os.popen("kpsewhich ...") I never understood this.

(IN case we can't solve it, maybe we can ask comp.lang.python?)

Here you have a picture from my shell
polifilo:/ andreavalle$ echo $SHELL
/bin/bash
polifilo:/ andreavalle$ echo $ENV

polifilo:/ andreavalle$ echo $BASH_ENV

polifilo:/ andreavalle$ echo $TEXMFCNF

polifilo:/ andreavalle$ which kpsewhich
/usr/texbin/kpsewhich
polifilo:/ andreavalle$ echo 'which kpsewhich' | sh
/usr/texbin/kpsewhich
Maybe this helps. Otherwise, I have no idea what went wrong.


That's not a good news...

Michael.

I did this interview where I just mentioned that I read Foucault. Who doesn't in university, right? I was in this strip club giving this guy a lap dance and all he wanted to do was to discuss Foucault with me. Well, I can stand naked and do my little dance, or I can discuss Foucault, but not at the same time; too much information.
