Re: Using Latex to create PDFs

Please don't top-post in reply to a bottom-post. Top-post all you like if you're the first respondent to a thread and I would ask anyone replying to you not to bottom-post when they follow you. But mixing the two is more annoying and less legible than either.

I've fixed it for you:

How do I set up Latex so that I can email pdfs?

Install LaTeX via your distro's package manager and ensure that:

   $ grep -i latex /usr/local/ledger-smb/ledgersmb.conf
   # If you have LaTeX installed, set to 1
   latex : 1

As far as I can tell, it *is* installed.

Ok. So what's the problem? Isn't the email button showing up? Don't you get PDFs when you email the invoices to yourself?

Your one-line posts aren't helping me help you.

Did you ensure that your ledgersmb.conf reads as I showed above?

You can test to see if LaTeX is installed & working properly by grabbing a random .tex file off the next (Google has lots of examples: <http://www.google.com/search?as_qdr=all&q=filetype%3Atex>) and running `latex filename.tex && dvipdf filename.dvi`.
