# TeX and LaTeX

For editing LaTeX you can use a standard editor (e.g. emacs, vi, gedit) or a GUI such as texmaker or kile. For references there is bibtex and the GUIs kbibtex and mendeleydesktop.

Local TeX and LaTeX information:

The Ubuntu default LaTeX installation is currently texlive 2015. We use the default texlive search path for our TeX installation, which you can find by typing kpsewhich --expand-var='\$TEXINPUTS'. For a sample user this expands to:

.:{/home/evatest3/.texmf-config,
/home/evatest3/.texmf-var,
/home/evatest3/texmf,
/etc/texmf,
!!/var/lib/texmf,
!!/usr/local/share/texmf,
!!/alt/applic/texmf-ubuntu,
!!/usr/share/texmf,
!!/usr/share/texlive/texmf-dist}/tex/{kpsewhich,generic,}//
