Latex: installing miscellaneous fonts and macros

25 Sep

In order to use the book template required by many iunstitutions such as IST (where my Thesis is being completed), check the following packages:

(you can use apt-get, synaptic (my favorite for this things), or aptitude)

  • texlive-fonts-recommended (the basic)
  • texlive-fonts-extra (needed for the template because of cmbr8 font)

As far as other Latex packages I have the following that come in handy for scientific writing:

  • texlive-math
  • texlive-math-extra

Also a lot of usefull macros can be found in:

  • texlive-generic-recommended
  • texlive-generic-extra

    I’m doing my thesis at IST and this was helpful to solve some compilation problems in the latex template. Thank you!
