Update gedit LaTeX Plugin

This post describes how I updated the gedit LaTeX plugin after I had it installed in an older version previously.

Backup your tools.xml file (definitions of tools to use with the plugin) etc.

cd ~/.gnome2/gedit/plugins
rm -rf GeditLaTeXPlugin
rm -rf GeditLaTeXPlugin.gedit-plugin
cd ~/Downloads/
rm -rf gedit-latex
svn co https://gedit-latex.svn.sourceforge.net/svnroot/gedit-latex/GeditLaTeXPlugin/trunk gedit-latex
cd ~/Downloads/gedit-latex/
chmod +x install.sh
./install.sh

To support the new "embedded preview mode" you must install python poppler:

sudo aptitude install python-poppler
