Introductory Workshop to LaTeX


Installing a LaTeX System

Follow the steps in this MikTeX installation guide.
You’ll want to go with TeXLive. Easiest way is to use your distro’s package manager (yum on Fedora, synaptec on Debian/Ubuntu, etc) to download and install it.
Mac OS X (Leopard and above)
Get MacTeX, which is based on TeXLive. If download speed is a concern, get BasicTeX instead for a minimal working system, which already enables you to do quite a bit of work. You can install all the other packages separately later.
