Resolved issues

Less or greater-than symbols

In order to use the math symbols "<" and ">" you have to insert the following lines at the beginning of the "makepng"-function

$tex = str_replace('&lt;','<',$tex);
$tex = str_replace('&gt;','>',$tex);

Some errors

There are small errors in the above linuxtexnk.php file.

In the following line a quote in the tex call is missing:

Markup('{%','directives','/\\{\\%(.*?),(.*?)\\%\\}/e',"tex('$1','$2')"); // for formula with reference

In the following line the ref function should be called instead of the inline function.

Markup('/EQ','directives','/EQ\((.*?)\)/e',"ref('$1')"); //for references to formulas

Furthermore i have added the code to make use of the combination 'dvips' and 'convert' instead of 'dvipng'. Default now is 'dvips-convert', but setting $useMethod="dvipng" uses the original method.

Here is the file: Attach:linuxtexrvdb.php

Make sure that the directory pub/cache in the pmwiki home directory is writable for the server.

I have added the two lines from Nils to Rein's version and changed the template for the TeX file a little bit.
Here it is for everyone ready to download: Attach:linuxtexsb.php

Now, there are three versions in three different files here. Isuggest reducing this to one official version (but I don't want to just delete the other comments). I'd stick with Stefans version and delete the other two Attach-statements.This seems reasonable to me to avoid confusion of potential users.
