When I try to compile the following code:

\asr \4ki:p\endasr

I get this:

! Undefined control sequence.
\c@lor@to@ps ->\PSTricks 
l.7 \asr \4
The control sequence at the end of the top line
of your error message was never \def'ed. If you have
misspelled it (e.g., `\hobx'), type `I' and the correct
spelling (e.g., `I\hbox'). Otherwise just continue,
and I'll forget about whatever was undefined.

The same happens with ConTeXt:

\input pst-asr
\asr \4ki:p\endasr

I get:

Is there a fix for these issues or should I give up on pst-asr?

  • I don't see any relation. pst-asr works well with XeLaTeX. – JairoAraujo Nov 6 '19 at 4:25
  • You are right, this error is reproducible on my machine. – Schrödinger's cat Nov 6 '19 at 5:44
  • @JairoAraujo: luatex and xetex are completely different. – user187802 Nov 6 '19 at 7:28

For lualatex use

\asr \4ki:p\endasr

and run it with lualatex --shell-escape <filename>

enter image description here

And for ConTeXt use

\input pst-asr
\asr \4ki:p\endasr

However, using xelatex is the easiest way

  • Neither works. LuaLaTeX outputs diminute letters in the ASR, whereas ConTeXt doesn't show any ASR at all. – JairoAraujo Nov 7 '19 at 2:53
  • See my output with running lualatex --shell-escape test.tex. I have an up-to-date TL2019 – user187802 Nov 7 '19 at 7:18
