    it worked for me:

    change the line in rtex/lib/rtex/framework/rails.rb

    if result.is_a?(String) && @template.respond_to?(:rendered_with_rtex)


    if result.is_a?(String) && @template.template_format=="pdf"

    I'll have to verify this doesn't clobber Prawn templates.

    • State changed from “new” to “open”

    I've pushed up this workaround to the repo in the 'rails-2.2.2' branch, http://github.com/bruce/rtex/tre...

    It will be merged with 'master' once I (or someone else) has the chance to verify compatibility across Rails versions and with the Prawn library.

    • Tag set to prawn, rails, release, v2-branch
    • State changed from “open” to “resolved”

    The compatibility issue with Rails 2.2.2 (and 2.3, edge) should be fixed as of RTeX v2.1.0, released today. Please let me know if you run into any issues.

    RTeX 2.1.0 also supports using RTeX alongside Prawn in the same Rails application (the solution recommended by cmo-0 for this ticket sidesteps a check designed to ensure RTeX doesn't 'steal' every .pdf render).
