After doing some math assignment for my study I’d really like to publish these things (in wordpress). I found a few ways to do so. One of them was wpmathpub, but I’d rather use LaTeX. Therefore I choose WP LaTeX and because I like it the non easy way I used my server’s installation of LaTeX. A requirement for this is that you have a running LaTeX installation. No problem I thought. Unfortunately, apt was giving me all sorts of errors related to this bug? Fortunately, I found a solution!

First we have to add an apt repositoy

nano /etc/apt/sources.list.d/texlive.list

and add the following lines:

deb http://people.debian.org/~preining/TeX/ tl2007/
deb http://people.debian.org/~preining/TeX/ context/
deb http://people.debian.org/~preining/TeX/ lmodern/
deb http://www.backports.org/debian etch-backports main

Then, we update apt and install the needed packages:

apt-get update

apt-get -t etch-backports install \
	texlive texlive-base texlive-base-bin \
	texlive-context texlive-fonts-recommended texlive-latex-base \
	texlive-latex-recommended texlive-metapost \
	texlive-pdfetex texlive-math-extra

apt-get install install dvipng

If you want to get rid of the warning of your apt-get/aptitude, import this public key into the apt keyring by calling:

wget -qO - http://www.logic.at/people/preining/dsa.asc | apt-key add -
