TeX Distribution for Linux (Puppy-Lucid)

Postby psionman » Sat Nov 26, 2011 1:42 pm

I've been using LaTeX on windows for about 12 months (MiKTeX and WinShell), but now I've got an old laptop up with Puppy-Lucid (Linux) and I would like to use LaTeX on this.

Can anyone please point me to some resources to help be choose and install suitable software to make this possible

NB: I'm a real newbie on Linux and have to have my hand held a lot.

You could install from the repositories, using a package manager such as Synaptic or type on the command prompt, in a terminal window:
  1. sudo apt-get install texlive-latex-recommended texlive-fonts-recommended texlive-latex-extra

or, for a full installation

  1. sudo apt-get install texlive-full

Or, install the newest TeX Live, this is what I did.

apt-get wont work on Puppy Linux.
You can get Texlive *.sfs files here:
