Hi Manish, I was going to add a comment to the bug I listed above, but in the discussion for that bug, they mentioned that if you have an application that is not alerting Zeitgeist about new files, it is better to request support here. Basically with TeX/LaTeX one uses a basic text editor to produce a file (.tex) consisting of what's basically markup language; a compiler program then produces a .dvi, .ps, or .pdf (depending on preference). Editors such as TexMaker have some built-in features that make both editing and compiling easier. (eg to produce a PDF you just click a button, rather than running pdflatex file.tex from the command line.) Probably if I used gedit to produce the .tex Zeitgeist would see it, but it's nicer to be able to use an editor like TexMaker (or Kile, although Kile is heavily KDE-dependent so I use TexMaker under Gnome.) Right now if I create or edit a file in TexMaker, Zeitgeist does not see it, although it does see the PDF once it's been created. I think getting Zeitgeist to see .tex files created in TexMaker shouldn't be any different than doing the same for any other text editor, but I'm unfortunately an end-user who's largely ignorant of what goes on under the hood.

(I was directed here from Bug #646724.) I use LaTeX exclusively for producing documents; currently if I create/edit a document, the .tex file does not show up in the Files/Folders lens in Unity. (However, the .pdf built from the .tex file does show up, which results in the feeling that the Files/Folders lens is making fun of me...)
