I'm using tufte-latex and I want paragraphs to have no indent, but a line skip instead. Normally you can achive this with:

\usepackage[parfill]{parskip}

Using tufte-latex this does not work however. So how do I do this?

You'll want to redefine a couple Tufte-LaTeX commands. The current paragraph indentation and skips are set as follows:

\makeatletter
% Paragraph indentation and separation for normal text
\renewcommand{\@tufte@reset@par}{%
  \setlength{\RaggedRightParindent}{1.0pc}%
  \setlength{\JustifyingParindent}{1.0pc}%
  \setlength{\parindent}{1pc}%
  \setlength{\parskip}{0pt}%
}
\@tufte@reset@par

% Paragraph indentation and separation for marginal text
\renewcommand{\@tufte@margin@par}{%
  \setlength{\RaggedRightParindent}{0.5pc}%
  \setlength{\JustifyingParindent}{0.5pc}%
  \setlength{\parindent}{0.5pc}%
  \setlength{\parskip}{0pt}%
}
\makeatother

You can copy those commands to the preamble of your document and fill in the values that you prefer (e.g., 0pt for the indents and \baselineskip for the \parskip).
