Hi Marcus,
Sorry I don't know where to post such questions. I need to get a working
system up and running asap since it helps with work and then understand how
to help with packaging etc.
Thanks much for your help and time. If I may, since I am like a day old in
arch world, pls be kind. I was going through the install messages and it
says :
You have to install this plugin into the same prefix as your gedit
installation (mine installed with pacman -S gedit, resides in
What I did was :
$cd /tmp
$git clone https:://AUR.archlinux.org/gedit-latex.git
$cd gedit-latex
$makepkg -Acs
$sudo pacman -U gedit-latex-3.20.0-1-x86_64.pkg.tar.xz
Before, I could just write my .Tex file and Ctrl+alt+1 and will get PDF.
pdflatex is installed via texlive-most pkg. Here, Ctrl+alt+1 doesn't do
anything. What am I missing? Because install was not proper? $which
gedit-latex says no gedit-latex in /user/bin etc.
Now, gedit can see the plugins and I marked the plugin. And also enabled
bottom panel where I see error messages. Here nothing comes. Any idea what
I need to do? Since I am teaching a class, I guess wrong time to play with
arch :(
Thanks in advance for any pointers. Appreciate it.

Thank you,
