Latex Editor on RedHat 6

Postby bolomanonbolo » Thu Jun 25, 2015 4:53 pm

I am looking for a LaTeX editor on a RedHat6 machine. I just need an integrated Latex environment. I found many difficulties in installing rpm's for editors such as Texmaker and Texstudio, so I kindly ask for an editor "easy to install".

Hi Claudio,

welcome to the forum!

Which LaTeX did you install? LaTeX from the repositories of RedHat, or over the internet from In the first case, I would try

yum install texworks

which works on some RedHat versions or clones such as Fedora.

Hi Stefan,
thanks for the reply.
I installed LaTex from the repositories I think. I am sure I didn't download anything from
Unfortunately the package texwork is not available :/

I have compiled TeXworks on my own, from the sources. This was quite painless on RHEL/CentOS 6.
