Okay I installed texlive 2012, just by following the guides from http://www.tug.org/texlive/.
Now when I downloadend, compiled and installed ipe7, the latest version. Now when I try something, draw/text etc, ipe tells me that it can't find pdflatex. Now I guessed that since I installed it from tug.org and not by a ubuntu package that it is now installed underneath a different directory. Pdflatex is located in the folder
Now I found in the manual that you can use the command flag
IPELATEXDIR to point to a different location where pdflatex is located. So I started
ipe --IPELATEXDIR=/usr/local/texlive/2012/bin/x86_64-linux/ but it still tells me that it can't find pdflatex?
I tried to find a log file in
~/.ipe/ but only the latex file is located there.
Does anybody got any clue?
