Description

TexMaths is an addon designed to provide LaTeX support into LibreOffice. LaTeX equations can be inserted as images (SVG or PNG formats) and the LaTeX code is saved into the image attribute for further editing. To insert your first equation into a document, simply type a LaTex math instruction in the text field of the TexMaths Equations window and then click on the LaTeX button. Ex: x(t) = \mu ^2 (t) should produce the equation x(t)=µ²(t)

New SVG toolbar icons have been designed.

Therefore, in that case the old hidden directory C:\texmaths-[username] can be safely removed. Also note that LibreOffice 6.2.3 (default version in Ubuntu 19.04) has a bug that breaks TexMaths. So please upgrade to LibreOffice 6.2.4 or above.

    Alors que cela marche sans problème avec la version de libre office 3, la version 7 ne trouve pas usr/bin/latex alors que celui-ci existe bien !
    Comment faire

    Thank you very much for this essential extension for impress!
    I want to give it five stars. I'm often running into the problem that I can't put an equation in a text box, which is a real pity.

    1. Why do I need an entire bar for 4 logos (that could be one)?
    2. Why doesn't it have a preview? I have to click the button every time I want to edit and see if it looks ok.
    3. Autocomplete/Error detection would be great, but of course needs a lot of time
    4. Why can't we contribute on e.g. GitHub? It could be a really great and important extension, but like this, it's not really well usable.

    Works great but only with LibreOffice v7+

    Great functionality, however, TexMath 0.49 constantly crashes on Linux LibreOffice 6.4.0.3, regardless of options, often when repositioning the formula

    • Jacob Cybulski May 14, 2021, 11:10 AM (3 years ago)

      It seems that updating LibreOffice to version 7+ fixed the problems!

    Sounds good, but won't install ("TexMaths-0.48.oxt does not exist")

    • adrien b Jun 4, 2021, 2:47 PM (3 years ago)

      Hi, i had the same problem. As you can see in another comment : "C:\Users\USER\AppData\Roaming\LibreOffice\4\user\uno_packages\cache\uno_packages\lu106683zpjl7.tmp_\TexMaths-0.48.2.oxt does not exist."
      so download TexMaths-48.2 (for instance). Then go to
      "C:\Users\USER\AppData\Roaming\LibreOffice\4\user\uno_packages\cache\uno_packages (you can use ctrl + h to see hidden files). Then you create the folder lu106683zpjl7.tmp_ and you put inside your file .oxt.
      then you can go to openoffice and re install texMaths from there, it should appears at this moment (for me it worked) i hope it will work for you

    This is truly great enhancement to LibreOffice Writer and Impress as it successfully allows to type equations using Latex syntax on both Windows and Linux!

    I am using this plugin for more than 5 years and I am really thankful to the author. Mr Roland Thank you very much!!!

    I downloaded the latest version of the extension from the SourceForge repository, copied the extension to the folder using the path specified in the error dialog, and ran the extension from the path. I was able to install the extension successfully and get it to work. Changed the rating to 4 stars. However, this bug with using the extension if LibreOffice crashes needs to be fixed.

    This is a great extension. I would have given it 5 stars. However, if LibreOffice happens to crash even once, it is next to impossible to re-install the extension. I keep getting the following error:

    "C:\Users\USER\AppData\Roaming\LibreOffice\4\user\uno_packages\cache\uno_packages\lu106683zpjl7.tmp_\TexMaths-0.48.2.oxt does not exist."

    When I got this error some time back the first time. I simply copied the extension to the folder and ran it from there. It re-installed the extension.

    Yesterday, LibreOffice crashed and I cannot get this extension to work. Re-installing LibreOffice and attempting to repair LibreOffice did not solve the problem

    What should I do to fix this problem? I need the extension to work properly. Thanks

    Very nice. It works better than LibreOffice's built-in formula editor. Thanks a lot for developer(s).
