A short note about WriteTeX on MAC OSX

macwritetex I have waited for pdf2svg or pstoedit to release a binary version for MAC OSX for a very long time until yesterday I was so disappointed and tried to solve it myself. I finally figured out a way to use WriteTeX in MAC OSX without fink installed. I upload a binary version of pstoedit for Mac OSX binary into the repository of WriteTeX, which is depending on Inkscape of this version installed in default location (Drag the app into your Applications folder). If you have no problem with these settings and you have the administrator privilege, then here is a solution for you.

  1. Download the binary from https://github.com/wanglongqi/WriteTeX/raw/master/pstoedit.zip and unzip it.
  2. Copy all the files to /usr/bin
  3. Copy WriteTeX plugin to /Applications/Inkscape.app/Contents/Resources/share/inkscape/extensions
  4. Start Inkscape to use WriteTeX

Hope you like it!
