EXPORT problem in Xfig 3.1

I have installed Xfig 3.1 from a cdrom  slackware 96. I can draw figures and save them in file.fig. But when I try to use EXPORT to convert file.fig to file.eps or file.ps it's giving me the following error msg:

"Error during EXPORT(check standard error output)"

How do I solve this problem.
Thanks.

Did you also install fig2dev? That's the program that handles XFIG-Exports.

If that's not the problem it would be helpful if you *did* check standard error output to give us a more meaningful error message.

Hi,

Following is the error msg in output. The fig2dev seems to be installed.


fig2dev: illegal option -- n
Usage: fig2dev [-L language] [-f font] [-s size] [-m scale] [input [output]]

I suppose this is an older version of fig2dev. I don't have a slackware CD here, so I can't tell you exactly what you have to do.
On your CD, try to find a package called 'transfig' or something like that, somewhere near the xfig package. This should contain a newer version of fig2dev.
