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.

  Add support for TexMaker

Status in Zeitgeist Data-Sources:

Bug description:
  I'd like to request support for TexMaker and other LaTeX editors.  (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...)
