comment dvips / mktexpk can't find font
Thanks good people. One clarification please -- I installed TL2012 on Ubuntu 10.04 using the tl_install script rather than with apt-get. Should I run both of the aforementioned commands? or just one or the other (which)?

I suppose its possible that my problem and the observed console output are unrelated...gotta start somewhere though.

comment How do I put a table (float) two spaces away from the left margin?
Thanks for the replies. I'm sure one of them will work. @Gonzalo amazingly informative answer. I can't test them now because I am trying to fix something else. I am writing a tool to convert thousands of documents from some descendant of RUNOFF markup and have them publication ready without humans retouching them. Not simple to do. I only have a little prior experience with LaTeX. Pulling my hair out today :p...Anyway, I will mark an answer as accepted once I fix what I broke and am actually able to try them out.
