This article summarizes how to install the Kile LaTeX editor with TeXLive instead of TeTeX (which is no longer maintained). For additional information about how to install TeXLive on Arch Linux, visit the TeXLive article.

Step 1, install TeXLive

The best way to start is installing the texlive-most package.

pacman -Sy texlive-most

Make sure you have enabled the community archives (in /etc/pacman.conf). You have to deselect texlive-bin during the installation process.

Step 2, install KPDF, KDVI,..

Make sure, that you have installed kpdf, kdvi, gv and kghostview. If you are using KDEmod (kdemod-kdebase) you need to do this by hand.

pacman -S kdemod-kdegraphics-kpdf kdemod-kdegraphics-kpdf kdemod-kdegraphics-kghostview gv

Step 3, install Kile

Finally you have to install Kile.

pacman -S kile

Start Kile from you menu and check whether all dependencies are solved using "Settings > Systemcheck". Kile will ask you for the Acrobat Reader (the pacman package is called acroread) but that is optional.

Step 4, pdfTeX warnings?

If you get warnings such as 'pdfTeX warning: pdflatex [...] fontmap entry for [...] already exists, duplicates ignored', try to remove the map files,, from my updmap.cfg and finally run updmap.

Enjoy Kile and TeXLive.
