I've installed TeX Live 2011 on Fedora 15 following the guide at the texlive site, http://www.tug.org/texlive/quickinstall.html. I've got texdoc, tlmgr and so on working from the terminal but I can't find TeXworks. I'm new to Fedora so this could be a very simple mistake.


As far as I know, TeX Live doesn't install TeXworks on GNU/Linux systems, because it would be too difficult to cope with dependencies on the various distributions. You can find a packaged version at

  • You can also compile from source pretty easily on most Linux platforms – Joseph Wright Sep 28 '11 at 11:11
  • On Fedora 15 "yum install texworks" will install TeXworks 0.4.3 which is the latest one - and will keep it up-to-date. So no need to install it by hand or by compiling it. – user2574 Sep 29 '11 at 5:21
