Line 1: Line 1:
+...a remake of the old [[http://setiwiki.tammen.net/latexrender|latexrender mod]].
+It is based on [[http://wiki.ioslo.net/dokuwiki/graphviz|the great graphviz plugin]] by Carl-Christian Salvesen.
+
+It consists of
+amine
+ * Latexrender, a generic PHP program by Benjamin Zeiss <zeiss@math.uni-goettingen.de>,
+  * a dokuwiki specific wrapper (syntax.php) by Alexander 'E-Razor' Krause <alexander.krause@erazor-zone.de>.
+===== Installation =====
+
+Alternatively, see the installation notes by Frisco Rose under http://wiki.splitbrain.org/wiki:debian_notes
+
+
+
+
+
+
+
+==== Prerequisites ====
+
+  * Of course you need this [[http://wiki.splitbrain.org/wiki:install | DokuWiki]] installed and running
+  * LatexRender needs a working installation of &lt;latex>\LaTeX{}</latex>, ImageMagick and Ghostscript
+  * If you are on a Debian box, ''$apt-get install tetex-base texlive-latex-recommended texlive-fonts-recommended imagemagick gs-common'' should be sufficient to install the required packages + * Recommended: install also tetex-extra + * Note: Make sure texlive-latex-recommended (used to be latex-ucs) is installed. It's not really a standard package. We need it because DokuWiki [[http://wiki.splitbrain.org/wiki:utf8 | uses UTF-8 to store its data]], so you also have to enable <latex>\LaTeX{}</latex> to handle UTF-8. + * If you are on a Fedora Core 3 box, ''$yum install tetex-latex ImageMagick'' should be sufficient to install the required packages (''$yum install tetex-unicode'' for including latex-ucs ??) + * Gentoo users use this: ''emerge -av tetex latex-unicode imagemagick ghostscript'' + +==== Installation with plugin manager ==== + + * within a web browser, load dokuwiki, follow the links admin > manage plugins, then download from URL: http://darcs.erazor-zone.de/php/dokuwiki/latex/latex.tar.gz + * at present, it may be necessary to make a little modification to the syntax file which requires command-line access to the dokuwiki server. See below. + +==== Installation from command line, with darcs ==== + +$> cd dokuwiki/lib/plugins
+  $> darcs get http://darcs.erazor-zone.de/php/dokuwiki/latex/ + +Update: +$> darcs pull
+
+
+==== Installation from command line, without darcs ====
+

Clearly, the instructions at the page are obsolete and misleading. +Here is what I did. + * Skip steps 2-5. + * Download ''latex.tar.gz'' (see the URL above) + * Unzip the files ''class.latexrender.php'' and ''syntax.php'' from this zip into the directory ''dokuwiki/lib/plugins/latex/'' (create it if you don't have it). + * Modify the paths in those files. In my case, on a Windows machine, those modifications include the following variables in ''class.latexrender.php'': + + var$_tmp_dir = "c:/temp";
+    var $_latex_path = "c:/texmf/miktex/bin/latex.exe"; + var$_dvips_path = "c:/texmf/miktex/bin/dvips.exe";
+    var $_convert_path = "c:/soft/imagemagick/convert.exe"; + var$_identify_path="c:/soft/imagemagick/identify.exe";
+
+and
+      var _tmp_dir='c:/temp'; +in line 22 of ''syntax.php''. + * Run the example given above and make sure that everything works. + +(inserted by Facundo) I had problems with the double quotes. I enclosed the paths in single quotes and it worked fine, e.g. 'c:\textmf\...' + +If you have problems, check that the plugin creates a tex file in your temporary directory (in my case, the file had a temporary name ''d1b4924d687d27239d896aaf8b9a6444.tex'') and run manually latex on this file. I found out that my miktex stuck initially because it required packages +eurosym and utf8x which I did not have. After I downloaded them manually, everything works now. + +Adding ''align=absmiddle'' on line 91 of ''syntax.php'' makes much better alignment of inline formulas. + +Gennady. + + + +===== Example dokuwiki contents ===== + + * <code latex>;<latex>öäüß</latex></code><latex>öäüß</latex> + * <code latex><latex> + \frac{3}{4 \pi} \sqrt{4 \cdot x^2 12}\\ + \lim_{n \to \infty} + \sum_{k=1}^n \frac{1}{k^2} = \frac{\pi^2}{6}\\ + \it{f}(x) = \frac{1}{\sqrt{x} x^2}\\ + e^{i \pi} + 1 = 0}\; +</latex></code> +<latex> + \frac{3}{4 \pi} \sqrt{4 \cdot x^2 12}\\ + \lim_{n \to \infty} + \sum_{k=1}^n \frac{1}{k^2} = \frac{\pi^2}{6}\\ + \it{f}(x) = \frac{1}{\sqrt{x} x^2}\\ + e^{i \pi} + 1 = 0}\; +</latex> + * For those who want a "displayed" equation instead of "inline";, or those with a piece of long proof, try this trick: \\ +//**Note: [space] = '' ' ' ''**//\\ +<code> +<latex> +[space] \begin{align*}

+$+</latex> \\ The space right after and before the ''latex'' tag is compulsory because the latexrender will encode all your stuff with a pair of dollar sign. The idea of my trick is to make the two dollar signs out of effect! I learn this from SQL-injection. + +> Alternatively, as noted at the bottom of this page, {{wiki:projects:php:dokuwiki:plugins:latexrender_extended.zip|This}} version of the plugin allows for simple markup, like$\alpha$directly in the wikitext. +>> Should work with the latest darcs version too, but you've to use %%$$latex$$%% ;-) $$\alpha!=\beta$$ +>>> I tried the today darcs version and the %%$$%% trick does not work :-( +> You could also replace line 190 in ''class.latexrenderer.php'' with ''string .= latex_formula."\n";'' (then enclose inline equations in s and displayed equations in$$s). + +===== News/Changes ===== +==== darcs changes ==== +{{rss>http://dev.erazor-zone.de//darcsweb.cgi?r=php/dokuwiki/latex;a=rss}} + +==== 24.08.2005 ==== + * darcs repository created + +==== 10.08.2005 ==== + * getInfo() added + +==== 29.07.2005 ==== + * global settings added + *$_tmp_dir

However, I do have ImageMagick installed, and the command *convert* works fine. The problem is really strange. At the line 249 of class.latexrender.php : +<code> + // imagemagick convert ps to image and trim picture +$command = $this->_convert_path." -density ".$this->_formula_density." -trim -transparent white ".$this->_tmp_filename.".ps ".$this->_tmp_filename.".".$this->_image_format; + +$status_code = exec($command); +</code> +The returned value of$status_code is zero, which presumptively means that the command did not execute correctly. However, when I type exactly the same command on terminal, everything works great, and I get the png file.
+
+Any idea what would be the problem?
+
+Thanks.
+

+> Nice work! Just started to work on a plugin for LatexRender and then found this! Greets, [[http://setiwiki.tammen.net | Jan Tammen]].

+
+> Also ''0777-$conf['dmask']'' didn't work for me -- I had to do a ''chmod x data/media/latex'' +> But now it runs perfectly - thanks for your work! + + +---- + +I'm having trouble getting this to work. I've traced it to execution of latex, which stops immediately with "can't find 'latex.fmt'". Nonetheless, when I stop the file from being deleted and go into the /tmp directory, I can run latex properly on the .tex file. Permissions are set liberally. Is there something with PHP that I'm not understanding? A safe mode problem, maybe? + +---- + +The following code doesn't work for me, e.g. transparency for generated images is broken:\\ + +class.latexrender.php(line 253): +<code> + // imagemagick convert ps to image and trim picture +$command = $this->_convert_path." -density ".$this->_formula_density.
+                  " -trim -transparent \"#FFFFFF\" ".$this->_tmp_filename.".ps ". +$this->_tmp_filename.".".$this->_image_format; +</code> + +but it works fine if I remove escaped double quotes that surround #FFFFFF, e.g.:\\ + +''" -trim -transparent #FFFFFF ".$this->_tmp_filename.".ps ".''

To see if my server was the problem, I tried installing everything on my Windows machine (using MikTeX) following the instructions in the previous comment. The error is duplicated exactly, except that the Unix paths are now replaced with Windows paths (ie the line numbers are the same).

Thanks so much! + + -- Chris +> This looks an awful lot like a permissions issue. Are you sure that your web server has permission to write in ''/tmp''? You could configure it (in ''lib/plugins/latex/syntax.php'') to write to a ''tmp'' subdirectory of ''data/latex''. I also had a problem with ridiculous ownership and permissions for the ''data/latex'' directory when I used the plugin manager to install this. +>>This may be an overall problem with getting images.

I think its something to do with$HOME not being parsed correctly. Or that kinda stuff. That is, the helpdul instructions on private package install instructions at [[http://www.tex.ac.uk/cgi-bin/texfaq2html?label=privinst]] work only from the shell, not from PHP. Grr. So I brute forced it by editing my conf/local.php to include <code>putenv('TEXINPUTS=/home/.eulis/bodyworker/texmf/tex/latex/unicode:/home/.eulis/bodyworker/texmf/tex/latex/unicode/data:');</code> as per their backup ideas at [[http://www.tex.ac.uk/cgi-bin/texfaq2html?label=tempinst]]
+
+You might really find it useful to go into class.latexparser.php in the distro and add some extra debug code to the lines near
+<code>
+      // create temporary dvi file
+        $command =$this->_latex_path." --interaction=nonstopmode ".$this->_tmp_filename.".tex"; +$status_code = exec($command); +</code> + +the latex rendering class is a bit bad here... the fact that it tries to return a status code makes you think that it is actually doing some form of useful error trapping here. It's not, and latex can throw HEAPS of errors that go undetected. ''$statuscode'' is merely set to the [[http://au2.php.net/manual/en/function.exec.php | last line of output of the function]]. a better version would be something like:
+
+<code>
+      // create temporary dvi file
+        $command =$this->_latex_path." --interaction=nonstopmode ".$this->_tmp_filename.".tex"; + exec($command,$latex_debug_array,$status_code);
+</code> and possibly prints the debug array in case of an error...
+
+I've written a little email to [[http://www.mayer.dial.pipex.com/tex.htm | the guy behind class.latexparser.php]] to express my opinions. I dunno, would you cll it a bug per se?

+Hello. Thanks for the great plugin and the equally awesome documentation. I have a few issues however:
+  - the size: the formulas look much better than the phpmathpublisher plugin but they are very small . how to set the size? the formulae are awfully small and i can't find a way to increase the font or formula size (like mathmulti allows) which is a shame. I tried increasing the value of _font_size in class.latexrender.php , but to no avail. still very small formulae. size matters + - vertical alignment with text baseline + * by default: is elevated about +50% + * requires nesting inside <html><font style="vertical-align:-50%"> tags. :( + - alt attribute of png is "Graph" <- must change to at least the syntax between the latex tags, like in mediawiki + * also when there's a syntax error i only get the text "Latex" instead "**Latex error**" or something. + - does not render pure latex (superset withmath$mode)! + * thus , cannot make theorem environments + * btw, the first test on this page , the one that begins \documentclass[14pt]{article} fails --- i don't know if i'm supposed to try it out inside &lt; latex &gt; tags on dokuwiki. + +Any help on these questions would be greatly appreciated, especially about increasing the font size of formulas. Thanks again. --- //[[user>onionmantis|onion mantis]] 2008/02/04 09:15// + +> If you change the$_formula_density value in the class.latexrender.php file to a value higher than 120, it will increase the size of the formula.  It would be nice to be able to edit this dynamically from the dokuwiki code instead of hacking the plug-in with a hard-coded value.  David

+I'm having trouble getting the PDF to render properly using Debian box (Using DokuTexit). When I hit the Generate PDF button, I get

+Change in syntax.php lines in 2 places:
+<code php>$renderer->doc .= '<img src="'.$url.'" class="media" title="Graph" alt="Graph" />';</code>
+<code php>$renderer->doc .= '<img src="'.$url.'" class="media" title="Latex" alt="Latex" />';</code>

+----
+You should not eliminate the other metadata in the renderer->doc string, consider using instead
+<code php>$renderer->doc .= '<img src="'.$url.'" class="media" title="Latex" alt="Latex" />';</code>
+to:
+<code php>$renderer->doc .= '<img src="'.$url.'" class="media" style="vertical-align: middle;" title="Latex" alt="Latex" />';</code>

+==== Restrictive ACL setups ====
+
+The latex namespace only exists under the data/media/ directory, and it is not shown in the ACL setup page of Dokuwiki. If you do not allow the users group access to all namespaces, they won't be able to see the latex rendering.
+
+The quick and dirty fix is to create a //latex// directory under the data/pages/ directory so that the latex namespace is shown in the ACL setup.
+
+This is either a Dokuwiki bug (only looks at namespaces in the pages directory), or a plugin bug (should create the namespace in both media and pages directories).
