Which LaTex packages to use with VL 6.0
« on: April 24, 2011, 04:16:45 am »
What is the latex package that we can use with VL 6.0?

I was searching for texlive but I didn't find it in the repo.

Thanks
I would love to change the world, but they won't give me the source code.

For 6.0, it's back to tetex. It's in "extra", so be sure that  extra's enabled. By default it is.

Thanks! And which editor can I use? I was looking for Kile or Texmaker but I didn't find them.

Maybe you'll like lyx. There's one in extra, and a slightly later version in testing. Testing repo is off by default, so you'll have to enable it.

Handy site for finding software that does the same job as "application X": http://alternativeto.net/software

Thank you! I'm already using lyx but if I want an in-depth latex source editing I'm more comfortable with an editor like kile or texmaker.
