Could the maintainer please update based on the previous comment? I tested adding to the for loop and indeed that does get it to show up for me.

I asked upstream. It seems to be a problem with the PKGUILD file.

Please see

The quintessence is:
There the error is in the PKGBUILD file where is
missing in the for loop:
package() {
cd textext/
install -d "$pkgdir"/usr/share/inkscape/extensions
for _i in default_packages.tex textext.{inx,py}
do install ${_i} "$pkgdir"/usr/share/inkscape/extensions/$_i
install -d "$pkgdir"/usr/share/licenses/$pkgname
install LICENSE.txt "$pkgdir"/usr/share/licenses/$pkgname/LICENSE.txt

I hope that this helps!

I added mercurial as makedependency. Could you please ask upstream your question?

Thank you for providing this package. A few comments:
- Mercurial should be a dependency
- The Textext menu entry does not show up in my version of inkscape. It does show up with the normal version of textext. Do you have an idea why this could be?
