TeX and Me

TeXI just wanted to document how I installed TeX on my MacBook Air.

I grabbed and installed BasicTeX-2008 from the MacTeX folks.

TeX binaries were installed in: /usr/local/texlive/2008basic/bin/universal-darwin.

So I added that directory to my path.

Next I updated the installed packages:

tlmgr update bin-texlive texlive.infra
tlmgr update --all

Since the ACM style file seems to need to more fonts, I installed the recommened font set:
tlmgr install collection-fontsrecommended

Also we’re apparently still using (the deprecated) subfigure.sty, so I installed that:
tlmgr install subfigure.

At this point I can build our most recent paper on the Air.

It looks like I need to use Skim and one of the visual editors to get source/PDF sync’ing working (using the installed synctex package). I’ll probably setup Textmate and Skim next.

    Oh, and TeX is very cool.
