Great move. It would be perfect if I use equations heavily in PowerPoints for the physics classes I teach. The math editor in Open Office is really bad and does a lousy job. I installed MathType under Wine. Lousy results, I don’t know why. I then got the demo of CrossOver Linux, still Wine based, but the results are what I expect, sort of. Most everything works cleanly but some symbols, important ones such as limits on integrals, circular integrals, some but not all special symbols come out garbled.
On Windows, the problem is almost always missing fonts. No luck. Some people suggest LaTex but I don’t see the point of learning that massive system for slides.
I’ve played with LyX, but that is not really designed for creating equations for other apps. The general attitude I’ve gotten from many on Linux sites is a variation of the old joke: The sign in the general store says “If we don’t carry it, you don’t need it. I like silly GUI stuff! I am not sure I know what is really wrong. Something else? I know that CrossOver doesn’t explicitly support MathType but it installed and runs fine.
Any ideas? I want the perfect Linux machine!
Mathtype equations in OpenOffice
Math is Apache OpenOffice’s component for mathematical equations. It is most commonly used as an equation editor for text documents, but it can also be used . I have (had) a document .doc) in MS Word format with MathType objects ( equations), but after saving using StarOffice some of the.
