comment Latex fonts Cyrillic fonts with lh
@Maria These are the three types of fonts defined by LaTeX: Roman, Serif, Typewriter. See the link provided by Sverre for more detail.

comment Latex fonts Cyrillic fonts with lh
Your example works fine for me, apart for the environment text1 and text2 that are not defined. What are these suppose to do?

comment How to detect LuaLaTex inside my .tex file and exclude bits and pieces conditionally
It’s not. It’s a completely different TeX engine (incidently based, amongst others, on pdfTeX). It’s not meant to be fully compatible and if you have longish documents, you should probably check carefully that the output of LuaTeX is satisfactory to you before switching.

Independently of your question, you’re not necessarily doing yourself a favour by switching engines for the sake of a single symbol.

Well, obviously it works with all engines. What would be the point of a package to detect engines if it only worked with some of them?

comment How to include pdfpages when running pure latex?
@AboAmmar You can scan an extract at high resolution. And you don’t need a package to use any TrueType font with pdfTeX, you just need to generate a TFM file and use an appropriate map file statement. See section 5.2 of the pdfTeX users manual for basic instructions, and there probably are tutorials in many places, including this site.

Did you? By generating a TFM and a map file entry? Anyway, if you insist on not using pdfTeX and still want an easy way to include PDF documents I really don’t think I can help you.

Well, if you’ve got Times New Roman as a True Type font you can use that one too. With pdfTeX.

comment How to include pdfpages when running pure latex?
@AboAmmar Why “of course”? Anyway, that’s just a Times clone; try the TeX Gyre version instead, Termes (\usepackage{tgtermes}).

@AboAmmar Thanks, that helps a bit. Is the the double-stroked letters of bbm you’re having a problem with? All the other font packages you’re using can be easily used with pdfTeX, or replaced with something equivalent.

@AboAmmar Again, that’s a problem that can be solved, but of course we need specifics. And I really doubt it’s TrueType fonts you’re using with the DVI route.

comment How to include pdfpages when running pure latex?
It sounds like you’re having a bitmap font problem. This can usually be solved. I suggest you ask a question about that, describing what font you’re using exactly, rather than trying to work around the problem.

comment How to include pdfpages when running pure latex?
It’s likely to be impossible to include PDF files in your document if you’re producing PostScript first. As you’ve found out, converting to EPS first would work, but apparently it’s inconvenient for you. What exactly is the reason why you have to produce DVI first?

comment New command: Hypothesis
Welcome to TeX.StackExchange! I would like to help you, but I doubt this is the exact code you’re using, I see at least two problems with it (\newcommand should be followed by a command name starting with a backslash, and in this case you would define a command, not an environment). Please post the exact content of the file that is causing problem.

comment Image not recognized as PNG
Obviously we need the file in order to be able to say anything useful about it. All we can say for the time being is that libpng reports an error. The file type reported by “Properties” (what OS, by the way?) may not be significant.

comment Why is there no separate TeX Users Group in Austria?
@SimonM.Laube The point about UK-TUG is that TUG understands itself as the global TeX user group, I think that’s what prompted people to create a specific group for the UK (I can find out the details if you want). I can almost guarantee that if there was no such group today, nobody would even think of starting one. Back to the topic of Austria, it seems likewise silly and a waste of resources to create an Austrian group today when there is a group that organises events in Austria (unless you want to make a Slovenian nationalistic point that Styria should be part of Slovenia, of course).

comment Why is there no separate TeX Users Group in Austria?
That’s because my point of view takes in account the simple fact that there is a TeX user group in Austria and that we thus cannot answer the question as you asked it. I was answering from the practical point of view because I think you actually want to do something concrete, and the first step is clearly is to contact DANTE. It’s not an ivory tower in Heidelberg, it’s run by actual people all over the German-speaking area and I’m sure you’ll find that there are members close to you, who could help you for local actions.
