The Puppy Package Manager can be set to install any Ubuntu Lucid package.
→ Configure package manager : Then tick the 3 Ubuntu entries :
Ubuntu-main, Ubuntu universe, Ubuntu multiverse.
Next : Hit the "Update now" button ...... hit <Enter> when asked ......
.......... wait "3 hours" for the data base entries to be downloaded,
and for "Processing <Packages-**> to a standard format."
Thanks, Done all that and I still don't see tex in the package manager

u-bum-2 is not the only distro around
There are several Puppy versions out there with different distros as base. Lucid Puppy is (as the name says) based on Ubuntu 10.04 Lucid Lynx, Wary is compiled from scratch and Slacko is based on Slackware. Since the OP stated that he uses Lucid in the first post< trying the apt-get approach was more reasonable than the pkgtool approach, I would think.

This is true rob. Ubuntu is, however, the best Linux distro for people new to Linux so I'll pardon the disrespect, this time.

I believe you said you are using Lucid Puppy, correct? I put in my live disc and searched for tex with the puppy package manager. I found several entries for texlive in there. Focus on learning how to use that package manager and that will help you a lot.

You could also see if this works. I am not sure, just did a quick scroogle search and found this,

Open a terminal and type (Or copy and paste):

Quote:
sudo apt-get install texlive-latex-recommended texlive-fonts-recommended texlive-latex-extra
If that doesn't work then focus on learning/getting use to the Puppy Package Manager. I did find those packages on my Lucid Puppy disc, so they are in there.
