Introduction

LaTeX is a popular markup language and document preparation system, often used in the sciences. The current implementation in Arch Linux is the TeXLive package.

Installation

The latex compiler is included in the texlive-core package. It can be installed with:

# pacman -S texlive-core

This package will be suitable for any non-specialized LaTeX needs. On its own, texlive-core should be suitable for most needs.

The package "TeX Live binaries" is also needed if one wants to compile a tex file.

# pacman -S texlive-bin

If you are looking for internationalization support, then the texlive-lang package provides various character sets and non-English features. It can be installed by:

# pacman -S texlive-lang

If extra funtionality is needed, various other packages add useful functionality to the core feature set. To get a complete LaTeX setup, the texlive-most package is available:

# pacman -S texlive-most

This package will install all of the available texlive packages available from the Arch Linux repositories.

For more information, see TeXLive.

Editors/Environments

While LaTeX can be written in a simple text editor, many people wish to edit LaTeX source in a specialized environment. Editors using various toolkits are below:

# pacman -S texmaker

GTK/+

Please note that GTK/+ can encompass both Gnome and XFCE environments.

  • Gedit - Supports LaTeX syntax highlighting, it is included in Gnome.
  • Winefish - A very light-weight LaTeX editing suite. It supports highlighting and code completion, compile-from-editor, among other things
# pacman -S winefish
  • Geany - An IDE that includes LaTeX syntax highlighting, building, and shows a list of environments/sections/labels in the sidebar.
# pacman -S geany

KDE

  • Kile - A user friendly TeX/LaTeX frontend for KDE
# pacman -S kile
