Hints for using LaTeX on MacOS

>
>

Recommended LaTeX tools and configuration for different platforms

MacOS

  We recommend either MiKTeX (https://miktex.org) or Texlive (https://tug.org/texlive/) with MacOS.

There are several guis available. On MacOS we recommend TeXShop. In TeXShop you should use the typesetting command 'pdflatexmk'

You may use TeXWorks instead if you prefer. TeXWorks is included in MikTeX. For instructions on configuring TeXWorks for the PDG LaTeX environment, see the notes below in the Windows section. They also apply on MacOS.

Hints for using LaTeX on Linux

The standard LaTeX distribution on Linux is TeXLive. How you obtain it depends on what distribution of Linux you use.

On Fedora Linux the TeXLive distribution is broken up into many packages. You will find that "dnf install texlive" will only install the basic packages, and you will not have everything you need. It will probably be easiest to use "dnf install texlive*" if you have plenty of disk space. This will install all available texlive packages.

On Ubuntu, go to the software center and search for texlive.

Hints for using LaTeX on Windows

 pdfLaTeX

This should properly compile the review, with all references and labels.

On Ubuntu, go to the software center and search for texlive.

On OpenSuSE use YaST to install texlive and any additional required packages.

docker

If you have a Docker installation, rather than installing LaTeX directly on your system, you can use image juergberinger/pdglatex . This docker image has a TeXLive 2018 installation with all the packages needed for PDG reviews.

See this github page for instructions.
