Quickly and fastly installing LaTeX: LaTeX in Debian Quick HOWTO

Problem: it`s needed to quickly and simply make scientific articles, books, monographs and practically all that have many formulas and graphs.
Solve: installation LaTeX in Debian – a work of a moment.

In UNIX-like systems packages for LaTeX called tetex or texlive. So, let`s open terminal and type as root:

#aptitude install tetex-bin tetex-extra latex-ucs

This will occupy about 120Mb of disk space, let`s approve it. For installation, only first DVD-disk is required. While packages are installing, let`s open your preferable text editor and type something like this:

documentclass[a4paper, 12pt]{article} usepackage[T2A]{fontenc} usepackage[english]{babel} usepackage[pdftex,unicode]{hyperref} begin{document} This is our first LaTeX document. end{document}

Saving this document with any name and *.tex extension, for example newlatexdoc.tex
Next in console, in that directory were you just saved already typed text, give a command:

$ pdflatex newlatexdoc.tex

Besides many files, will be sought-for file newlatexdoc.pdf
That`s all, and you already stared in great world of LaTeX.
