What is replacement of LaTeX for LinuxMint KDE?

Postby Olnex » Sun Aug 26, 2007 7:43 pm

I need to write LaTeX document for my subject's assignment and I'm using LinuxMint KDE, for GNOME, I found tetex, I also found kile for KDE, but it's just a frontend, so can anyone tell me what should I install if I want to use latex on KDE?

I'd go for kile and hope dependencies are installed as well :)
Don't fix it if it ain't broken, don't break it if you can't fix it

I prefer texlive over tetex

The ex-maintainer of tetex recommends texlive: http://www.tug.org/tetex/.
I am using texlive with satisfaction with both Kile and LyX as frontends.
I installed texlive first and then Kile, but adept-manager then marked texlive for removal and tetex for installation. The dependencies associated with Kile require one of tetex or texlive. To choose texlive here requires deselecting tetex and selecting texlive again
/*off topic - this adept-manager function could use some improvement: if one of the options required for installation is already installed, assume it is the users preference, but that's another discussion) */
