Ok. Perhaps I do not need the PK font support. Sorry.

About the second problem, I can't set up the unicode. In the manual they say 
I should add \usepackage{ucs} into LaTeX preamble. I ask: In what LaTeX 
preamble? If it is referring to text.tex in latexrun directory, I tried that 
without success. I still get those "undefined control sequence" errors. Any 
ideas what I should do?
