How to get PDF printing working on squeeze? This is probably a critical bug


So PDF printing seems to need the perl modules Template::Latex or possibly Template::Plugin::Latex.

This is provided by the Debian package libtemplate-plugin-latex-perl - but this is not available in squeeze - only wheezy. Also, unfortunately, it is not available in Debian backports either.

The INSTALL file says to run:

perl Makefile.PL
make install

but on squeeze these just produce errors and fails.

Trying to load the module with:

cpan Template::Latex

also produces lots of fails.

On the positive side - most of LS seems to be working OK now - but the PDF generation is pretty much crucial to how we like to work. This seems to be the last problem with running LS on Debian squeeze.
