latex problem


hello,

I have ubuntu 12.04 and I'm trying to install a IEEE template to create a .tex document. I have tried both methods of the following tutorial, but none worked:
https://softwareexperiments.wordpres...tex-in-ubuntu/
When I try to compile it, it outputs errors like these:

! I can't find file `nullfont'. <*> ...ljfour; mag:=1; nonstopmode; input nullfont Please type another input file name ! Emergency stop. <*> ...ljfour; mag:=1; nonstopmode; input nullfont Transcript written on mfput.log.

! I can't find file `pplr7t'. <*> ...:=ljfour; mag:=1; nonstopmode; input pplr7t Please type another input file name ! Emergency stop. <*> ...:=ljfour; mag:=1; nonstopmode; input pplr7t Transcript written on mfput.log. grep: pplr7t.log: No such file or directory

i don't understand what's wrong, I was able to make it work on a 10.04 seamlessly.

If you have enough disk space, try to install texlive-full package. If you don't, try typing texlive into Synaptec Package Manager and installing some extra packages. I don't know which one you miss, but I had a similar problem and one of the extra package solved it.

This is correct, most often it can be linked solved by installing the texlive-latex-recommended package. Look for that in your synaptic package manager or from the command line:
Code:
sudo apt-get install texlive-latex-recommended
