# [tomboy-list] Tomboy LaTeX Plugin: installing on OS X?

Hi Sandy,

Thanks for the help, but unfortunately I'm still having some problems.
I tried copying the author's Latex.dll file into my
/.config/tomboy/addins/ folder, but didn't have any luck getting the
plugin to work. (Typing in "/[ \phi /]" didn't produce a greek
letter.)

My attempt to build the dll myself also led to errors (could not find
'Gtk' and 'Gdk'). I have the usual MacTeX2008 distribution of LaTeX ,
which should include latex, dvips, and convert in the path. Is there a
way to check this?

If this ends up being too much hassle, then I can find an alternative.
Either way, I really appreciate all the help.

Best,
Flip
