[tex-live] Rubber and Tex Live Native

thank you all for your answers. So indeed rubber doesn't use the good path because I set it only in .bashrc. By the way, to launch gedit from a terminal is still not enough, the path is not evaluated or not given to gedit (strange, isn't it ?). So I would like to try the solution involving .bash_profile but I can find it (I tried with the find command). I'm using ubuntu I could make a difference. Do you have any idea of where exacly is/should be the file. Or the Ubuntu equivalent. Thank you.

As I think it could be useful, here is the script I wrote which is able to create a pdf (including also reference, biblio, ...). And only the last call of pdflatex returns error :


if [ "$FILE_TYPE" != "tex" ]
exit 0

if [ ! -f .$GEDIT_CURRENT_DOCUMENT_NAME.properties.xml ]
while [ -z $PARENT_FILE ]
PARENT_FILE=$(zenity --file-selection --title="Select Master Doument" --filename="$GEDIT_CURRENT_DOCUMENT_DIR" --file-filter="*.tex")
echo "<?xml version=\"1.0\" ?>

" > .$GEDIT_CURRENT_DOCUMENT_NAME.properties.xml
PARENT_FILE=$(cat .$GEDIT_CURRENT_DOCUMENT_NAME.properties.xml | tr ' ' '\n' | grep value | cut -f2 -d'"')

/usr/local/texlive/2011/bin/x86_64-linux/pdflatex $PARENT_FILE >/dev/null
/usr/local/texlive/2011/bin/x86_64-linux/pdflatex $PARENT_FILE >/dev/null

/usr/local/texlive/2011/bin/x86_64-linux/bibtex $BIBTEX_FILE

/usr/local/texlive/2011/bin/x86_64-linux/pdflatex $PARENT_FILE >/dev/null
/usr/local/texlive/2011/bin/x86_64-linux/pdflatex $PARENT_FILE


if [ -f $OUTPUT_FILE ]
gnome-open $OUTPUT_FILE

It's made for the Gedit "external tool" plugin, so if you prefer to run from a terminal :
GEDIT_CURRENT_DOCUMENT_NAME : is the name of the document you want to compile,
GEDIT_CURRENT_DOCUMENT_DIR : is the name of the folder containing the document

This script is compatible with rubber as it creates xml files containing the name of the parent file in a spread latex file. So you can ask to the script to compile a son in a composed document, the script will ask you only once which is the parent and then will compile it. Hope it to be helpful.

Thank you
