Description ScytheMan 2012-02-14 13:39:11 UTC
"LaTeXDraw is a graphical drawing editor for LaTeX. LaTeXDraw can be used to 1) generate PSTricks code; 2) directly create PDF or PS pictures. LaTeXDraw is developed in Java and thus runs on top of Linux, Windows, and Mac OS X. It's available in English, in Spanish, in French and in German. You need jre 1.6 to launch LaTeXDraw. "

would be great to see this in tree.

Added bundled libs as blocker. These are not really blocking, but unbundled libs might allow a cleaner ebuild.

It compiles but fails starting:

Uncaught error fetching image:
        at sun.awt.image.URLImageSource.getConnection(

        at sun.awt.image.InputStreamImageSource.doFetch(
        at sun.awt.image.ImageFetcher.fetchloop(

I don't know, if I did anything wrong in the ebuild (it looks quite hackish) or its the alpha version.
Maybe someone with more knowledge takes a look. 

Ebuild, I used as a template:

Reason for exception: Forgot two directories in jar. :[

Programm seems to work now.

Hello, everyone.

It seems that at least one ebuild related to this bug exists in the Sunrise overlay at the moment. However, I have to regretfully announce that after a long inactivity period the Sunrise project has been discontinued and the related overlay will be eventually removed. For this reason, I'd like to ask you to reevaluate the ebuilds and consider moving them. If you'd like to maintain a package from Sunrise in Gentoo, please take a look at our Proxy Maintainers [1] project.

Please make sure to take ebuilds from the unreviewed developer Sunrise repository [2] rather than the -reviewed one, since the latter has not been updated for over a year. While at it, please note that:

1. Adding a package to Gentoo requires declaring yourself as an active maintainer for it. All bugs regarding the package will be assigned to you, and you will be expected to maintain it.

2. Some packages may not be suitable for addition anymore. While there's no strong rules that would prevent you from adding a package, it may be a bad idea to add old-unmaintained packages that will shortly result in a large number of bugs reported with no solution. If that is the case, please close the bug as RESOLVED/OBSOLETE to make it easier to find packages worth adding.

3. Some of the bugs were already closed as WONTFIX/OBSOLETE/... while the relevant ebuild was kept in Sunrise. If you disagree with the original decision, you still can add the ebuild via proxy-maint.

4. Pleaes note that many of the Sunrise ebuilds are old and may be buggy. If you decide to move them, please make sure to update/clean them up. The proxy-maint team will also review your ebuilds, therefore making sure they land in Gentoo in good quality.

Once again, thank you for your contribution. We hope that you will still want to contribute to Gentoo, through proxy-maint or otherwise.
