Arch Linux + ConTeXt

(The canonical location of this blog post is now Arch Linux + ConTeXt on my web site.)

The command-line program to use for ConTeXt is texexec. (The lower-level context command may work in other distros but it doesn't in Arch currently. Luckily, texexec is great.)

ConTeXt currently requires Ruby older than Arch Linux's 2.0. Install e.g. Ruby 1.9 from AUR. Use env PATH="/opt/ruby1.9/bin:$PATH" texexec.

Hopefully this will be out of date by the time you read it!
