Fonts in root/5.34


I have missing labels when using Greek characters (e.g. \eta) in root/5.34.09 or root/5.34.13. I checked that there is no problem when using root/5.32.00 and using the same machine (SLC6 OS) and the same macro.
I have Unix.*.Root.UseTTFonts: true in etc/system.rootrc. and I include TLatex class.
Could you, please, tell me how to fix this?

Thanks a lot in advance.

Fixed. One should use # and not \ in front of the Greek character (as clearly stated in


When you use \ instead of #, TLatex automatically switches to TMathText.

Hi Couet,

I solved my problem replacing // by #. Apparently this switch to TMathText (when using \ instead of #) is not happening in root/5.34.
