I need to include LaTeX symbols and equations in Inkscape. I believe the text text extension can solve this problem. However I could not see an installation procedure in their website for Mac OS-X. Has anyone installed this extension and make it work with Inkscape in Mac OS-X. I installed the Inkscape in my Mac using Homebrew- Caskroom


I found a solution to this problem in this blog post.

You can first download the latest version of the Textext from here and then you should download and install the Eggbot extensions for Inkspace. Copy the two textext file into the extension file of inskspace.

Extension directory is located at: /Applications/Inkspace.app/Contents/Resources/share/inkspace/extensions/

Now you can use the textext extension on inkspace.

EggBot software can also be found at this GitHub link.
