Being the playful nerd I am, I changed some things in the plugin's sourcecode. There is a diff file available, although the list of changes is rather small:

- The packages
`amssymb`

and`amsmath`

are now used, thus providing you with - more symbols and equations. I changed the deprecated
`equation`

environment - to the
`gather`

environment. I don't know if that makes sense.

Still, rendering some symbols such as `\LaTeX`

doesn't work. Apparently, this
is a restriction of LaTeX's math mode. However, the LaTeX plugin for
kopete seems to handle this.

**Addendum**: I found a solution: If the plugin ignores any errors LaTeX
encounters while trying to build the `.dvi`

, the use of `\TeX`

works in math
mode. Download and apply this diff if you want a more
kopete-like solution.
