I received the following error when running Tex Text:

The fantastic lxml wrapper for libxml2 is required by and therefore this extension.Please download and install the latest version from, or install it through your package manager by a command like: sudo apt-get install python-lxml

Technical details: No module named lxml

So I think python2-lxml should be a dependency.

Thank you for reporting that. I fixed that now.

Why is pygtk optional? It doesn't work without it. Pygtksourceview2 could be added as optional for syntax highlighting. I also needed gnome-themes-extra to stop the error messages, but at that point it already worked.

I got a fatal error on 0.9.1-4, suggesting that pdf2svg is not optional but mandatory:

[TexText][CRITICAL]: pdf2svg is NOT found in PATH

Nothing from my side against installing it, though.

Thanks for the package!

I tested it and it seems to work fine.

Fails to build, please add dos2unix to makedepends.

Just to let you know, the 0.9 version of textext has a bug and tries to write its log file tu /usr/share/inkscape/extnsions, which obviously does not work. A fix is submitted upstream, but not yet merged.

To get a functioning textext you can checkout the textext-git package on the aur and change the source url to the fixed branch on my fork on github. I will post detailed instructions there.
