When I run PdfLatex in TexMaker, a .idx file is generated, but not an .idn file. Can I configure TexMaker to generate the .idn file?

I use Ubuntu and can manually generate the .idn file by running makeindex on the .idx file in the terminal.



This is a test\index{test}.

    Last time I checked there is a command in texmaker to run make index, see the tools menu. Like wuth bibtex, texmaker does not run these automatically
