I have a local installation of TeXLive which is working without problems. I
usually use LyX for making documents, and it works.
Friom timt to time I need a LaTeX editor and there is nothing better then
kile, so I installed it from the official ubuntu precise repository and it
But I also had to install TeXLive packages as they are dependencies of kile.
Is there a way of installing kile without TeXLive? Or do I have to compile it?
Yes. use a package called equivs:
sudo apt-get install equivs
Then create a file named:
with the following (or similar) content:
Maintainer: Jasper Aorangi
Do the same for at least texlive-binaries, texlive-common, texlive-doc-base, texlive-latex-base but changing the Package:<blah> in each file.
Make sure that the version is greater than the ubuntu versions by a long way!
There may be some others that I have forgotten... certainly texlive tries to sneak in via all sorts of different sources.
I have to do this for kbibtex some time too.
