I had this textext installed with `pstoedit`, but there appears to be a bug in how `pstoedit` calls Ghostscript. The -dDELAYBIND flag has been deprecated.

Installing `pdf2svg` allows textext to work around this issue by not using the `pstoedit` backend.

I do not maintain this anymore, please change the maintainer comment in the PKGBUILD.

The PKGBUILD doesnt seem to be working ( Missing package() )
Here is the modified one i used :
added "pstoedit" as dependancy
Removed Licence.txt and its md5sum
changed build() to package()
# Contributor: Joel Schaerer <>
# Maintainer: Stefan Husmann <>
pkgdesc="An inkscape extension which lets you add LaTeX equations to your drawings"
arch=('i686' 'x86_64')
depends=('inkscape' 'texlive-core' 'python2-lxml' 'pdf2svg' 'pstoedit')
package() {
cd "$srcdir"
install -Dm 644 LICENSE.txt \
install -Dm 755 \
install -Dm 644 textext.inx \
