# Write Math Symbols Latex in Inkscape

Posted by rolf on Tuesday, 31 March 2015

In Inkscape (from version 0.48) you can include mathematical symbols using Latex. In the menu bar go to

Extensions->Render->LaTeX Formula

and write your formula. Note that the formula will appear below your drawing area. So it might be necessary to zoom out to see the formula.

If you don't see the menu entry it might be necessary to install latex, dvips, pstoedit. In Ubuntu you can open a terminal (Ctrl + T) and insert following line (followed by the enter key. You are asked for your root password.)

sudo apt-get install texlive pstoedit
