# Color in pstricks not showing

I'm compiling this MWE with xelatex, I don't get any compilation errors, but the texts are all big black regular ones without any style applied. I'm using TexLive 2013 by the way. How should the file be compiled?

• Compile with LaTeX > dvips > ps2pdf...? That works for me. – Werner Jul 5 '14 at 5:58
• @Werner Yes, I can get the correct result with LaTeX > dvips > ps2pdf. However my document contains other eps/jpg/pdf figures and CJK characters so I need the xelatex part. Any ideas? And maybe it's not colors per se, because I can compile correctly this MWE just fine with xelatex. tex.stackexchange.com/questions/179004/… – egwene sedai Jul 5 '14 at 6:47

Use

\documentclass{article}

and then run pdflatex --shell-escape <file> or alternative lualatex. The dvipdfmx driver of XeTeX cannot handle outline fonts.
• It really needs to be on the roadmap of dvipdfmx, though. For people who need unicode supprt, this is a mess. – egwene sedai Jul 6 '14 at 8:24
• Why? You can use lualatex – user2478 Jul 6 '14 at 11:29
