  • Noob here- how to download Latex?

  • Darkmode broken in Setzer – is it still maintained?
    2 projects | /r/LaTeX | 26 Jan 2023
    On Xubuntu 22.04.1 LTS, I had no problem starting the editor, changing to dark mode, compiling (with pdfLaTeX by with MiXTeX). The suggestions equally show up, just as anticipated, too (screenphoto). The guide to set up an article worked like a charm.

    Or, does the flatpack attempt an installation of a large portion/all of TeXLive? (Aiming for a more granular approach, to fetch only the packages I really want [with optional, yet independent download of the documentation] was a major motivation to move to MikTeX (non-Docker) installation equally running from a a thumb drive, or in Linuxes. This was something in close to 100...200 MB in total as a starter package (already with its package manager), to which one can add/update/remove by like/dislike, need/no-need. And by the documentation, an installer for Fedora 37 equally is provided.).
  • LaTeX as a replacement for MS Word

    texdoc comes with TeXLive only. With MiKTeX (which equally works well in Linux as in Windows, and from a thumb drive), you select the packages (or their documentation, or both) of interest for download. A double click opens the .pdf (screenshot).
  • I've got a problem

    does the compilation with pdfLaTeX work? Do you use an instance of MiKTeX recently updated? A note about the GUI used would complement a problem report. If you use e.g., TeXStudio, then you already have a preview of the compiled document to monitor the advance of your work. You still can setup the program to open an external pdfviewer (e.g., sumatra) for a subsequent detailed inspection, print to paper of the pdf, etc. later.
  • Lyx export ODF using mk4ht
    3 projects | /r/LaTeX | 12 Dec 2022
    With an export of your .lyx to .tex, which may be submitted to pandoc. The entry Demos showcases some examples from which you may infer the syntax, the entry Demos -> Try pandoc online offers an installation free test ground e.g., from latex to .docx or .odt (or others). The less complex the .tex file, the greater the chances this minimal version will work, so forget (for now) illustrations and bibliographic references. However, if you install pandoc (freely available, cross-platform) and read the documentation, you may access much more functionality (including insertion of images, use of a bibliography; generation of .pdf with pdfLaTeX [e.g., with MikTeX], etc.) There equally is a r/pandoc, too.
  • Math equations' font in KaTeX
    2 projects | /r/LaTeX | 11 Nov 2022
    Give me some rope here, because you don't describe the installation available to you. I assume it is possible for you to collect and process the .md files locally. If so, a joint installation of miktex (for the part of e.g., rendering equations with pdfLaTeX), and pandoc for the conversion of file formats, e.g., markdown to .pdf, is handy.
