I'm coming from Windows and this is the first time I'm in Linux, Mint 14 x64 here. I used to use MikTeX and TexStudio to produce my documents in Windows. So I understand the difference between the LaTeX packages and the editor.
However, I think there is no MikTeX for Linux and I don't know which Texlive package to install from the Software Manager. textlive-latex-base, texlive-full, texlive, texlive-base, etc.
Hard disk space is not an issue. I want the most complete package. Is texlive-full complete, or do I need to install all of them?
