Tracker doesn't seem to index text files with extension *.tex.  Is there
a way to force it to do so?  Curiously, Tracker by default indexes the

missing something obvious.  I'm using 0.6.3.

we would need a  latex filter (simple shell script that outputs to a
text file)


Ahh, looks like there is a latex filter that was already added on
January 2.  It depends on the "untex" command, which I probably don't
have.  I'll check when I get home.

Anyway, do you think it would be reasonable to check for the untex
command and just copy the file directly if untex is not installed?  Say
something like

UNTEX=`which untex`
if [ -n "$UNTEX" ]; then nice -n19 $UNTEX "$1" > "$2";
else cat "$1" > "$2";

I'd prefer having a TeX file indexed with all the TeX commands than
having untex (apparently) silently fail.

I have committed your changes - thanks
