The latex can be installed by following instruction:
Followings are showing how I installed for example.
# wget http://carroll.aset.psu.edu/pub/CTAN/systems/texlive/tlnet/install-tl-unx.tar.gz # tar -xvzf install-tl-unx.tar.gz # cd install-tl-20091126 # ./install-tl
While running “install-tl”, I used ‘D’ option to change the directory to be installed, and ‘O’ to select ‘use letter size instead of A4 by default’ option.
It took around 1 hour to be installed. I have installed it in “~/texlive/” and latex and divpng are installed in “~/texlive/bin/x86_64-linux”
If you want to test the latex, please do
# latex small2e
It will give small2e.dvi in your directory. Using dvipng tool, you can make it gif or png image file.
