Gummi – Simple LaTeX Editor For Linux

Posted in Tricky, Ubuntu by luckyborneo on April 7, 2011

It’s been a long time since I learned about LaTeX. This kind of text processing was took a place in my heart. It’s very simple and powerful. You can do anything with this text processor. All you need just remember its syntax and its package when you start to type anything; article, book, thesis, or report. There are a lot of editor for LaTeX, such as Kile (for KDE Environment), GNU Texmacs Editor, Textmaker, gedit with latex plugin, and many more.

Today, I will introduce you one of them. Gummi, it is very simple. Take a look at the screenshot.

It’s simple, isn’t it? But how to install it on your Linux machine? I’m using Ubuntu Lucid Lynx as my operating system. Just type these command lines:

$ sudo add-apt-repository ppa:gummi/gummi
$ sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install gummi

That’s it. Now you can run Gummi and start to learn about LaTeX. Have a nice learning.. 😉

    It would be great to be able to detach the right pane when working with two screens.

    Best and thanks for this great editor!
