Error running Latex Mode Plugin

I've installed this plugin but I get

| 2010-02-03T14:48:09Z warning | exec failed: No such file or directory at /var/www/foswiki.trythisout.co.uk/lib/Foswiki/Sandbox.pm line 471.

when navigating to the plugin page to see if it works. trythisout.co.uk being aour site to do exactly what it says, try out various web applications

Math Mode Plugin is installed and working, so we have Latex & dvipng up and running

Not sure what to do next

OK, I'm an idiot - I activated the plugin before I finished reading the instructions. I deactivated it & read that it required manual settings in the LocalSite.cfg to point to the extra modules it needs (Latex itself & the necessary converters). Add these lines & the plugin works fine.

So, the lesson is make sure everything is installed & configured befre activating a plugin...

Probably, this needs a followup in tasks to make configure checkers so it's easier and more obvious to get the plugin to work.
