The application launches now, but it is of no much use on linux since
all typesetting commands are windows specific (mtxrun.cmd, cmd.exe etc.)

Oh, I knew that, I have a local patch even (from when it was still
TeXworks). I'll send my patch to Hans.

Best wishes,

Running it gives:

Though I've texworks on my path:

I found that the file.split_path(os.getenv(PATH)) call returns a table
with single member containing the full PATH variable (it assumes it is a
semicolon separated list, but on linux it is a colon separated list). 


hm, that should be detected automatically; i'll check it


Even after getting around this, the executable name it is looking for is
'TeXworks' while it should be 'texworks'.


oh, so they changed it? good, as this mixed uppercase lowercase is annoying
