texvc is a OCaml program that generates PNG images for the Math
extension. Packages for Debian and Ubuntu are now available, please see
<https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/User:Legoktm/Packages/texvc> for more
This package is useful regardless of whether you are using the mediawiki
package or not - it allows you to use texvc without needing to install
the full OCaml toolchain to build it manually.
Finally, in the long term the Math extension maintainers would like to
phase out texvc in favor of the mathoid-based code. If you do use texvc
(packaged or not), your comments on
<https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/T155201> would be appreciated.
