following up on a useful question and quite a few answers How can I call TexLive in Ubuntu? my question remains open :-)
I write my LaTeX texts in gedit, my base is ubuntu hardy heron 8.04,
now I seek a way to compile what I have written in gedit
however, I cannot see in gedit how I would be able to compile anything, even though I have now installed texlive-full (which I -- eh -- hoped would enable me to compile my LaTeX files created in gedit). So it seems I need to find the connection between TexLive and gedit in order to get it done. Correct?
can anyone tell me what is the missing link?
do I need to install a latex plugin for gedit? e.g., http://ubuntu-ky.ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1270282
