    hello,
    i'd like to able to run this script instead of "pdflatex" in kile

    mkdir -p /tmp/kiletemp; cp .tex .sty *.bib /tmp/kiletemp/; cd /tmp/kiletemp/; pdflatex $@

    call it "pdflatextmp"

    It simply copy everything in to a temporary folder, then compiles it.
    it seems that i'm not able to do something similar in kile.
    on bash it works.

    i tried also to tell kile not to run pdflatex but pdflatextmp.
    it doesn't work. it tells me that he's not able to run it (even if i wrote the complete path).

    how could be done this? is it possible to do it in kile?
