13.9.3 TeX/LaTeX


     # tasksel # select Miscellaneous  --> TeX/LaTeX environment

References for LaTeX:

  • The teTeX HOWTO: The Linux-teTeX Local Guide

  • tex(1)

  • latex(1)

  • The TeXbook, by Donald E. Knuth, (Addison-Wesley) [66]

  • LaTeX - A Document Preparation System, by Leslie Lamport, (Addison-Wesley)

  • The LaTeX Companion, by Goossens, Mittelbach, Samarin, (Addison-Wesley)

This is the most powerful typesetting environment. Many SGML processors use this as their back end text processor. Lyx provided by lyx, lyx-xforms, or lyx-qt and GNU TeXmacs provided by texmacs package offers nice WYSIWYG editing environment for LaTeX while many use Emacs and Vim as the choice for the source editor.

There are many online resources available:

When documents become bigger, sometimes TeX may cause errors. You must increase pool size in /etc/texmf/texmf.cnf (or more appropriately edit /etc/texmf/texmf.d/95NonPath and run update-texmf) to fix this.
