For all the mathematicians out there in ubuntu land... The procedure in my last post works on an ubuntu live CD setup. Here's the steps;

* Installed Inkscape and all the recommended and suggested packages for that, then installed kile to satisfy the latex requirements (this in turn installed texlive, which may have been enough). Couldn't find miktex as recommended in the script itself, but I think any tex environment will do.
* Go to Applications -> Accessories -> Terminal
* cd /usr/share/inkscape/extensions
* curl -s 'http://launchpadlibrarian.net/14090556/eqtexsvg.py_linux_shell_apply.patch' | sudo patch -p0
* complained that curl is not installed
* sudo apt-get install curl (installs curl)
* (up arrow x 2) curl -s 'http://launchpadlibrarian.net/14090556/eqtexsvg.py_linux_shell_apply.patch' | sudo patch -p0
* complained that patch is not installed
* sudo apt-get install patch (installs patch)
* (up arrow x 2) curl -s 'http://launchpadlibrarian.net/14090556/eqtexsvg.py_linux_shell_apply.patch' | sudo patch -p0
* reports "patching file eqtexsvg.py"
* run Inkscape and test Effects -> Render -> LaTeX formula... (Apply using defaults)
* Looks great.
