Project details

The MiKTeX package manager GUI is currently only available for Windows. It allows users to

  • browse the package database
  • search for packages (using keywords or file names)
  • install/uninstall packages

The GUI is currently written in MFC. The goal is to rewrite the GUI in Qt, thus porting the MiKTeX package manager GUI to GNU/Linux.

Specifically, I’d like support for 64 bit Linux. But thanks already!

Hm, this is becoming less necessary now that TeXlive 2008 has its own package manager.
