I want to setup latex environment on Ubuntu 12.04 64bit Machine. As I am making a backup system for Windows 7 machine.
I have installed the latest version of Texmaker 3.3.4.
Now I want to know which latex distribution to install for making PDF files.
I seen few like XeLaTeX, TeX Live etc. Can you suggest the LaTeX distribution for Ubuntu which is very well maintained and up to date? I have used MiKTeX 2.9 for Windows and found it very good.
So In a nutshell I am looking for an Ubuntu (Linux) alternative to MiKTeX.
