Bug Description

Rubber has modules for compiling LaTeX projects with aleph, omega, pdftex, vtex and xelatex. Notably missing from this list is lualatex. Could it please be added?

Thanks for your report.

I am aware of the issue. Unfortunately, it's not as easy to fix as it looks at first sight. Rubber does a lot of magic behind the user's back, converting images etc. Variations between different LaTeX compilers are in need of a systematic solution.

Changed in rubber:
status: New → Confirmed
importance: Undecided → High

I simply copied the xelatex.py module to lualatex.py and renamed the 'program' executable to lualatex. Does not seem to be more than that. It works for me...
