Latex: installing miscellaneous fonts and macros

In order to use the book template required by many iunstitutions such as IST (where my Thesis is being completed), check the following packages:

(you can use apt-get, synaptic (my favorite for this things), or aptitude)

  • texlive-fonts-recommended (the basic)
  • texlive-fonts-extra (needed for the template because of cmbr8 font)

As far as other Latex packages I have the following that come in handy for scientific writing:

  • texlive-math
  • texlive-math-extra

Also a lot of usefull macros can be found in:

  • texlive-generic-recommended
  • texlive-generic-extra

    I’m doing my thesis at IST and this was helpful to solve some compilation problems in the latex template. Thank you!
