From Nils: Could we install this latex-plug in for the redmine wikis? It would be the easiest way to include mathematical equations in the wikis

I got problems due to the name of the plugin that involves a hyphen.
I have downloaded and tested this plugin too. I also got problems with the name, but I managed to solve it. When I have installed this plugin, I renamed it with the following name : redmine-wiki_latex_plugin
The error was something like this :
[...] plugin wiki_latex_plugin does not exist [...]
It concerned the following file :
Line 3, we can see the following code :
<%= stylesheet_link_tag "wiki_latex.css", :plugin => "wiki_latex_plugin", :media => :all %>
The solution was to replace
:plugin => "wiki_latex_plugin"
:plugin => "redmine-wiki_latex_plugin"
After this modification, the plugin was recognized.
It is possible that while using the plugin, some formulas aren't interpreted, typically those involving braces. To solve this problem, look at this : http://www.redmine.org/issues/3061

Thanks a lot, Yoann.
This definitively got me further. I have the plugin installed on the server, and I have the required latex, dvips, and convert (from ImageMagick) installed as well.
Furthermore I have altered
as supposed to. I have also modified
as discussed here. Finally I have migrated the production database and restarted the application.
I don't get any error messages any longer, but I still have the same issues that you had the other day: I don't obtain the desired result. Instead the formula is simply printed without being interpreted.
The redmine site that I'm currently testing this with is:
Would you be kind to take a look at the formatter.rb file to see if I might have mistyped anything?
