Can you please tell me the step-by-step procedure to install MaTeX on Mathematica Online platform?

    $\begingroup$ I am pretty sure that this is not possible. I do think that I could do this on a Wolfram Enterprise Private Cloud virtual machine, but that is expensive ( though I think WRI should just donate one for MSE people to play with and e.g. install MaTeX and other nice way-ahead-of-standard-Mathematica-packages software ... ). $\endgroup$ Commented Feb 26, 2019 at 22:44
  • $\begingroup$ @RolfMertig I think you can do this if you manually copy up the .paclet file and unzip it with ExtractArchive. Might need a PacletDirectoryAdd in there too. $\endgroup$

    $\begingroup$ @b3m2a1 But how do you install LaTeX and ghostscript and convince WRI you are allowed to call that ... $\endgroup$ Commented Feb 26, 2019 at 22:47
  • $\begingroup$ @b3m2a1 Can you execute LibraryLink on the public cloud? I don't think so ... $\endgroup$ Commented Feb 26, 2019 at 22:49

1 Answer 1


MaTeX relies on an external TeX system. Since this cannot be installed in Wolfram Cloud, MaTeX would not be usable either.
