Build and Install
Simply run

make install (as root)

It should install the plugin in the tomboy plugins directory.
You can then install it via the tomboy interface (or copy the Latex.dll
from the plugins directory (usually /usr/lib/tomboy/Plugins) to your
$HOME/.tomboy/Plugins folder)

Using the Plugin
Simply type LaTeX math formulas enclosed in [...] in your notes and they will
automatically be converted to images. To edit the image again, simply click on
it or backspace over it. It is a bit tricky to find out when the plugin will
convert text to images and backwards, simply try it out, it should be quite
intuitie most of the time.

The images are only displayed when you open a note and are not saved to your notes.
