Latex files missing with Mint 13


Hi!

I have installed Mint 13 and wanted to use latex with it. Whereas I have never had to install any extra packets with Suse for example, Mint 13 requires all the time missing packets. I try to install as many as I could but there are still missing files and I can't imagine that I have to download each of them separatly. Which packet should I install with the Packetadministration in order to have files such as units.sty or multirow.sty automatically installed?

Thank you for any help.

Assuming that the Mint repositories are similar to the Ubuntu/Debian, and that you've already installed TeXLive, install

texlive-generic-extra

and

and texlive-extra-utils

This should cover most packages.

If you use TeX/LaTeX very often, you should consider to install the texlive distribution from tug.org http://www.tug.org/texlive/

You can download an installer (which then downloads all files from the internet, about 2GB) or you can download DVD-image.

Installation is quite easy, you'll only have to set the pathes correctly. We have a new Howto at slackdocs http://docs.slackware.com/howtos:sof...ve_integration it is quite generic, it should work for any distribution.

But note, if you install texlive from tug.org, don't forget to uninstall the version from Mint's repository!

I'm running texlive from tug.org and I'm very happy with the version. I'd recommend to take a look at the newsgroup comp.text.tex

Thanks for your answers! I installed texlive-generic-extra (I already had installed texlive-extra-utils) and now things work fine.
