Tip: Using the Ubuntu Manual Project’s PPA

I figured it’s time for another tip, since I offered to write this tip up for a fellow IRC user.

It appears that the Ubuntu Manual Project (which I’m a part of) has no instructions up for using the new LaTeX PPA, so I thought I would take this opportunity to help fill a gap.

So, to add the PPA first you will need to use the add-apt-repository command:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:ubuntu-manual/ubuntu-manual

Then you will need to update your sources:

sudo apt-get update

Lastly you will need to install the ubuntu-manual-tex package:

sudo apt-get install ubuntu-manual-tex

That’s it, your done!

    Hi. I just noticed that your blog looks like it has a few code problems at the very bottom of your website’s page. I’m not sure if everybody is getting this same error when browsing your blog? I am employing a totally different browser than most people, referred to as Opera, so that is what might be causing it? I just wanted to make sure you know. Thanks for posting some great postings and I’ll try to return back with a completely different browser to check things out! London,UK

    Howdy there, are you having difficulties with the hosting? I needed to refresh the page about huge number of times in order to get the page to run!
