Description

Name: GNU TeXmacs

Homepage: http://www.texmacs.org/

Description:
GNU TeXmacs is a free wysiwyw (what you see is what you want) editing platform with special features for scientists. It is especially enjoyable to edit mathematical formulas within TeXmacs.

I, a college student, find it really helpful when writing experiment reports. And I have not found any other comparable solution.

Vote up for this. TeXmacs is pretty good TeX editor.

Requires an older version of guile (1.8) that we don't have. I have tried using the --enable-guile2 configure option but that doesn't work. This will need a separate guile1.8 package so forwarding to Ikey for confirmation.

This has sat in accepted for inclusion for almost a year. Clearly, there is a lack of demand for the inclusion of this software, nobody has stepped up to provide a completed patch, communicate issues, maintain it, and properly integrate it. Closing as a result. Feel free to reopen but only when someone offers a patch via our proper patch submission methods and volunteers to be maintainer.
