Hi,

最近我想用tex写模板,由于我听说,ubuntu repo中的tex版本太老,最好安装最新版的。

但是我在网上乱搜了一阵子,没有找到tex live的下载链接。

按理说,一般的软件下载,只需要去软件的官网,搜download这个单词,点进去就能下载了,而我搜tex,点了好几下,也没找到下载的入口。

请问,需要在哪里才能下载到最新版的tex. (我的系统是linux)

P.S. 咱们北航有CTAN的源么(我好像在哪里见过)?如果有,它和我被推荐tex live是一回事么?

Best Regards,
Qingwen

Thanks

However, it there any detailed and silly lecture, after which I can use latex seem like after
    sudo apt-get install texlive-latex

I am still lost in it.

关于你的问题:花园上搜latex,找到的资料对新手很友好,我就是看着那个开始的。
我这几天页正在学tex,正好可以一起探讨了。我的Arch,直接装了个texlive-most,很新。hiahia

Hi, QinWen Guan

Overall, I suppose what you are asking is "How to install latest TeXLive on Linux?"
I recommend to install it via internet and the official description about this can be found here [1].

To answer your question particularly, I want to say something about CTAN mirror first. If you already know what does Ubuntu mirror mean, it should be easy to understand CTAN mirror. They just work for the same propose. All things related to CTAN/Ubuntu can be download from mirror so as to speed up client and reduce official server stress. Many opensource projects spread in a similiar way. And there is already an opensource mirror in BUAA [2] and for CTAN you can find it here [3].

The following workflow should be what you want exactly. The only thing you need to care is the choice of mirror, they may vary according to the variety of your network situation.

- Download `install-tl-unx.tar.gz` from here [4]
- Uncompress it by `tar -zxvf install-tl-unx.tar.gz`
- Run instal script by `./install-tl --repository http://mirror.buaa.edu.cn/CTAN/systems/texlive/tlnet/` 
- Begin download and installation by choosing `I` (installation)

That's all! Yes, you got it! Isn't it pretty easy? You just need to have a coffee or walk to wait. if it interrupts halfway, just run the same command again and it will resume from last break point.

If you have any further problem, feel free to tell me. :-)

Hi huxuan,

First of all, thank you for your kindness.
I think, I've somewhat, installed texlive.

# I downloaded the iso file from [1] and
# mounted the iso and run the script install-tl  in the iso
# and exported the PATH

You can see [2] for detail ( Welcome correction )
( I also found other people recommend to use install-tl-unx.tar.gz, do you know if there is any difference between using the  install-tl-unx.tar.gz script and te install-tl script in the iso? )

However,
# I have not checked for the Chinese support. ( Can you recommend any plug-in helping to build the Chinese Environment )
# I heard that we may need to install extra fonts. Do you have any instructions can help to do it.
# Indeed, what I need most is the coding environment. Currently, I use the listings environment. Do you know other better environments?

Thanks again for your kindly response.

The iso contains all thing you need for installation, you can treat it as **local** mirror. From my point of view, the reason why installation via internet is recommended is that our network is faster enough for download and installation, it can reach the level of normal hard drive (not SSD) at about 10MB/s, so there is no need to an extra download action. Besides, we can always got the lastest version via netinstall, which is not guaranted by a potential old iso file.

# I have not checked for the Chinese support. ( Can you recommend any plug-in helping to build the Chinese Environment )
For Chinese support I recommended use XeLaTeX + ctex package, you can find package documentation here [1] where contains basic usage and test at first part.
 
# I heard that we may need to install extra fonts. Do you have any instructions can help to do it.
If you use XeLaTeX, no extra fonts is needed cause XeLaTeX has ability to use system fonts instead of specific LaTeX ones. But maybe you need to install windows fonts so as to use 宋体, 黑体 and so on. A biref instruction can be find on FAQ of BUAAthesis [2].
 
# Indeed, what I need most is the coding environment. Currently, I use the listings environment. Do you know other better environments?
lstlisting should be good enough. BUAAthesis also use this as example. If you find it hard to use or looks ugly, you may need to learn more about its configuration. A biref one can be found on wikibooks [3], and for more info you should look through the package documentation [4].
P.S. Wikibooks is a very good resource for LaTeX related problems, you shouldn't miss it! :-)

Hi All,

In [https://github.com/BHOSC/BUAAthesis/wiki/FAQ], it instructed to copy the font from windows directory. I found it a bit take time. So I compressed the fonts files and uploaded to the Internet[1].
Please feel free to use it if anyone also need it.

(I am not sure whether it is ok to upload it into github repo. After all it is a bit large and may meet copyright issues.)

Best Regards,
Qingwen GUAN

Unfortunately, winfonts are commercial restricted, so I suggest you not upload it on Internet in case of any potential problems.
