 Well, it has been done in Debian here - as a patch. Can we do the same upstream and drop the excessive amount of source code? @infirit @flexiondotorg @NiceandGently @willysr @posophe @obache thoughts? yes, some of you have already confirmed that MathJax is in your distros, I know 😄

 I am not against removing and relying on the distro's packaged version. I am only concerned about distro's that do not have this packaged, slackware was one but then I don't think @willysr enabled epub in atril..

 I agree with this proposal.
commented Sep 7, 2015
 yes, go on with this idea :) just let me know when it has become a mandatory dep
commented Sep 8, 2015
 I agree with this idea too. I don't know whether "/usr/share/javascript/mathjax" is the de facto standard location for MathJax installation or not, but it is better to add a configure option to specify the location (with existence and required version check). I will also avoid potential missing dependency from packaging.

 I agree too. And don't worry, I'll package it by basing it on Fedora's

 Yes, runtime dep has to be there - in debian it's libjs-mathjax.
