...do we have this in Gentoo? This is supposed to be an old feature and, seemingly, nothing special has to be done in order to build Kile with support for it

http://kile.sourceforge.net/wiki/index.php?title=Live_Preview

but I can't find it anywhere in Kile. Anyone using this feature in Kile?

PS: I know that TexStudio has this feature, but I like Kile editor (Kparts-based) better :)

Cheers!!

I use app-editors/kile-9999:4::kde just for that reason. ;)

EDIT: Its a live-ebuild from the kde overlay. The "stable" 2.1.3 is just way too old. (end of 2012)

That did the trick...thank you very much lagalopex!!

Just in case anyone stumbles on this, I also had to

- add a tool called "LivePreview-PDFLaTeX" from within Kile
- manually modify the section for that new tool in kilerc so that it looked like this

autoRun=no
checkForRoot=no
class=LaTeXLivePreview
close=
command=pdflatex
jumpToFirstError=yes
menu=Compile
options=-synctex=1 -interaction=nonstopmode -output-directory='%dir_target' '%source'
to=pdf
type=Process

I took the above hints from

https://forum.kde.org/viewtopic.php?t=107511

Cheers!!
