I received the following error when running Tex Text:

The fantastic lxml wrapper for libxml2 is required by inkex.py and therefore this extension.Please download and install the latest version from http://cheeseshop.python.org/pypi/lxml/, 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!

The release 0.10.0 is out:

https://github.com/textext/textext/releases

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.

I don't like doing it, but I adopted the package, fixed the source array and bumped the pkgrel. It should build fine now.

The solution provided by swedishhat made the package install, but textext generated errors when run from inside Inkscape. Downgraded to previous version.
