Hello,

does anyone run LaTeX on their Zaurus?
If so, how does one install it? Are there IPKs?

I'd need a setup which allows to compile a latex source file to PDF. Enhancement packages for image embedding, letter composing, enhanced tables etc. would be nice.
I do not need any fancy WYSIWYG or otherwise special LaTeX editor, vim with syntax highlighting is enough (and I have vim already).

Sharp / Cacko ROM on an SL-C3000. No X/QT (well, I have installed it, but never use it due to the slow speed and some other problems).

Thanks

daniel

It's the first hit on Google for Zaurus Latex. I've tried it and it works well. Its a disk image that you have to mount by loopback. Instructions on the website.

Lyx somewhere available too?

LyX runs quite well using PocketWorkstation

I used meanie's debian installer and then did:

apt-get install lyx
some basic instructions on http://greenant.net/portal/greenant/wiki/D...cketworkstation

It finds the dependencies from there and since lyx is a very lean program, it runs quite nicely, haven't found a good reference manager though, Jabref is great but requires Java 1.4

Latex is also ported to pdaxrom, and runs quite nicely there. It's on the contrib feed, I think, packages as a tarball rather than an ipk. It does take a bit of space, of course. I had hacked at the debian-arm lyx package (1.3.4 I believe is the version) back when I used OZ/gpe and managed to get it to run. I did the same thing for pdaxrom, and it works there as well. On OZ I ran it without latex; you have to cheat and use the config file from another machine, or it won't believe it can do anything. But on pdaxrom it will even access tex and other export formats. I can't seem to get it to display odd math fonts as nicely as it did on OZ, though.

Since all I have done to date is hack it so that it works, I haven't made an ipk out of it. RSN I plan to figure out a way to compile it, either on the Z or cross-compiled on the desktop,

We have LaTeX in OpenEmbedded so it can be added into OZ feeds - I'm building it now..
