    I installed the plugin using the SVN repository.
    Everything worked fine except that the preview was never available.
    Michael told me to run gedit from the console and I found this error2011-03-29 20:02:36,307 DEBUG PreviewDocument - Initialize <GeditLaTeXPlugin.src.latex.livepreview.PreviewDocument instance at 0x9c02fcc>
    2011-03-29 20:02:36,309 WARNING PreviewDocument - Error loading poppler (python-poppler not installed ?).

    I installed python-poppler (using apt-get) and now it works fine.
    I did not find any note regarding python-poppler. Maybe a note could be added in the project homepage.

    The "INSTALL" file says "Poppler Python Bindings (optional, needed for embedded PDF preview)" in the "REQUIREMENTS" section.

    Hi Michale,
    Yes, that is true. I hadn't check the INSTALL file, I just was reading the webpage. Maybe is a good idea to make the two list of requirements equivalent
    I mean this page

    I also can not easily find a requirements section on the sourceforge page, that is maybe my mistake.
