See https://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=135997 . It's debatable whether it's a kde or a kubuntu bug, but the easiest solution would just be to replace /bin/sh with /bin/bash in the kubuntu version of kopete_latexconvert.sh

added upstream bug

fixed upstream, could someone backport it?

see: http://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=135997 and http://websvn.kde.org/?view=rev&revision=799199

from the kde 4.0.4 changelog:
"Fix the latex script for dash based systems (like *buntu). Fixes bug 135997. See SVN commit 799199."

And since this only changes the shell script this fix should be valid for kde 3.5.9 as well.

Is this an issue with KDE4? If not, the intrepid task ought to be set to "invalid", otherwise this needs to get fixed in Intrepid ASAP.

I can confirm that the version in hardy-proposed 4:3.5.9-0ubuntu1.1 fixes the problem.

Invalid for intrepid since this fix was backported from KDE 4.0.
