PreTeXt on Ubuntu 18.04

Posted in Computers, Math by pgadey on 2020/04/19

As part of the trying out new things bonanza, I installed PreTeXt. It turned out that my install was missing a couple packages: texlive-fonts-extra, texlive-science, and xsltproc.

Once these packages were installed, things worked great!


sudo apt-get install texlive-fonts-extra texlive-science xsltproc
git clone https://github.com/rbeezer/mathbook.git

cd mathbook
git checkout dev
cd examples/minimal/

xsltproc ../../xsl/mathbook-html.xsl minimal.xml
xsltproc -o minimal.tex ../../xsl/mathbook-latex.xsl minimal.xml
pdflatex minimal.tex
