Evince cannot view my dvi files. Is there any way to enable dvi viewing other than further installing Ubuntu TeX Live packages?
Opening it from the desktop gives document has incorrect format; using the terminal gives
warning: kpathsea: configuration file texmf.cnf not found in these directories: /usr/share/texmf/web2c:/usr/share/texmf-texlive/web2c:/usr/local/share/texmf/web2c
(If you are using TeX Live installed from TUG, you can just use the provided xdvi to view dvi files.)
