texvc is a OCaml program that generates PNG images for the Math extension. I maintain Debian and Ubuntu packages for it so users do not need to install the full OCaml toolchain to build it manually.
Supported operating systems
- Debian Stretch
- Debian Jessie via the official backports
- Ubuntu Xenial via a PPA
- Ubuntu Trusty (package is named
The package is also available in modern Ubuntu releases, starting with Zesty Zapus. These are supported for as long as the release is, but I don't do explicit testing on non-LTS Ubuntu versions.
If you are using Debian Jessie, you'll need to enable jessie-backports. Ubuntu Xenial users will need to enable the PPA. And then...
sudo apt-get install texvc
Ubuntu Trusty users will need to install the
mediawiki-math-texvc package instead.
In your LocalSettings.php, set:
$wgTexvc = '/usr/bin/texvc';
