I've been reading a lot of sites to see the best way to get the packages in Texlive installed in my Ubuntu based system.
So far, these are the
texlive packages I've seen recommended:
texlive-full texlive-latex-base texlive-latex-extra texlive-latex-recommended texlive-generic-extra
each one to be installed via
sudo apt-get install <package>.
The first one,
texlive-full is clearly the largest one containing (I assume) everything that can be found in the others. But, what do the others meta-packages contain? What are the differences between them and which one should I install to get a working LaTeX environment under Ubuntu as fast and as lean as possible?
