Please add provides=("texmacs=${pkgver}"), conflicts=("texmacs"):

Hi, someone knows if the texmacs-qt package is working with guile2.2 or guile. Thanks.

It is an interesting case, I could not say why it is due, I have not worked with vector image in pdf format, I will try to figure out what is the origin of this behavior.

Could you tell me which package contains the qt_convert_image command? I can't find it in my system.

What distro do you use?

I am facing one issue which I hope you can have a look at. In TeXmacs, if you insert a vector image in pdf format, TeXmacs first converts the image to png using ghostscript and then inserts the png into the document. Even though I have ghostscript installed, the TeXmacs built from this aur package does not find ghostscript and instead uses qt to convert the image, which is usually in a very low resolution. I know this issue is from ghoscript not being found because I enabled debugging when converting the image and got the message below. Can you please have a look at the way at why TeXmacs built from this package is not able to fond ghostscript.

TeXmacs] debug-convert, image_to_png ...  using qt 
TeXmacs] debug-convert, qt_convert_image /home/medwatt/sample.pdf -> /home/medwatt/.TeXmacs/system/tmp/181386/tmp_63472292.png

I think that idea does not apply in this case. Both packages are made up of the same file content, so they are even the same size. The scripts to build both packages are almost identical, the only difference is that latex is not a dependency (latex isn't even a build requirement).

According to your latest comment you should maybe choose a name which reflects the purpose better - say, texmacs-minimal.

Hi @slbtty, there are no big differences.

I keep this branch because it allows me to install on machines with limited resources (like mine), without the need for latex to be a mandatory dependency (texlive-core).

slbtty commented on 2022-04-19 16:33 (UTC)

Is there any critical difference between this and ?

I just saw that the comments jump from the date 2013 to 2020. Does anyone know why the posts of all those years were lost?
