There is a good way to install Latex to avoid many junk of libraries under Linux:

apt-get install --no-install-recommends texlive
apt-get install --no-install-recommends beamer

With this method, it can run well on any Linux machines, even on a low power raspberry PI. With this installation method, you can be sure that your book editors or manuscript publishers will not complain of not being capable to make a PDF out of your source file.

In beamer there is a lot of default theme with this minimal installation method.

However, I searched into the directory /usr/share/texlive/texmf-dist/tex/latex, but it seems that there aren't default themes for Latex, for instance reports, articles,...

It is actually good, yeah, because we asked for a minimal installation.

I am expecting that I could have maybe not found if there are few beautiful latex default themes, for articles, books,... that are in all Linux distros for sure.

Thank you

    what is the question exactly? – Marijn Oct 2 '17 at 19:18
  • if there exists some templates for reports, ... by default, as for beamer. – user98734 Oct 2 '17 at 20:55
  • I guess you mean document classes? If so, have a look at the .cls files in the file list of the texlive-latex-recommended package (which is a dependency of texlive): it includes two of the most common document classes other than the standard ones (article, report, ...) found in every LaTeX installation, namely the KOMA-Script classes and memoir. – diabonas Oct 14 '17 at 21:54
