It's been long time since I posted on my blog last time. I have found **EqualX** as awesome **open source LaTeX equation editor** which is rich in features than "LaTeX Equation Edit EE", I previously mentioned on this blog.

**EqualX**:

**Features:**

- Large number of symbols and math expressions under
**symbol and math toolbar**. Just click on the symbol buttons and EqualX automatically inserts the code. All you have to do is just fill inside {}.

**Type TeX or LaTeX**Type your equation in the best typesetting language for equations, TeX. You can paste in your existing equations and mix TeX code with click-and-click.**Syntax Highlighting - Type Easier**The equation editor helps you type equations easier with syntax highlighting.**Code Completion - Type Faster**Code completion helps you type faster with suitable hints.- Save the equations to graphic png extension so that it can be used in documentations.

I used MikTeX distribution of LaTeX. EqualX requires MikTeX 2.8 or higher versions.

You can obtain MikTeX distribution from the site: http://miktex.org/

I suggest to install full version of MikTeX.

If you have installed the basic version of MikTeX, EqualX needs **esint** package. This package can be downloaded either by internet connection (which in my case, does not work!) via missing package dialog box or manually by searching on the link http://ctan.org/tex-archive/systems/win32/miktex/tm/packages.

To install the package, MikTeX needs **local repository directory**. Just download miktex-zzdb1-2.8.tar.lzma and miktex-zzdb2-2.8.tar.lzm where 2.8 is the version name at http://ctan.binkerton.com/ctan.php?filename=systems/win32/miktex/tm/packages/miktex-zzdb1-2.8.tar.lzma and http://ctan.binkerton.com/ctan.php?filename=systems/win32/miktex/tm/packages/miktex-zzdb2-2.8.tar.lzma respectively ( you can change 2.8 according to your MikTeX vesions) and put them in the folder you have downloaded the **esint** package.

EqualX is still in development. I hope that future release of this wonderful software will contain many useful features and improvements.
