In the process of developing the Digital Library of Mathematical Functions, NIST had needed a means of transforming the LaTeX sources of our material into XML which would be used for further manipulations, rearrangements and construction of the web site. In particular, a true ‘Digital Library’ should focus on the semantics of the material, and so NIST should convert the mathematical material into both content and presentation MathML. At the time, there found no software suitable to our needs, so NIST began development of LaTeXML in-house.
Snaps are applications packaged with all their dependencies to run on all popular Linux distributions from a single build. They update automatically and roll back gracefully.
Snaps are discoverable and installable from the Snap Store, an app store with an audience of millions.
Snap is available for Linux Mint 18.2 (Sonya), Linux Mint 18.3 (Sylvia), and the latest releases, Linux Mint 19 (Tara), Linux Mint 19.1 (Tessa), Linux Mint 19.2 (Tina) and Linux Mint 19.3 (Tricia).
You can find out which version of Linux Mint you’re running by opening System info from the Preferences menu. To install snap from the Software Manager application, search for snapd and click Install.
Alternatively, snapd can be installed from the command line:
sudo apt update
sudo apt install snapd
Either restart your machine, or log out and in again, to complete the installation.
To install LaTeXML, simply use the following command:
