I just installed texmaker in Ubuntu through Software Central as it was recommended by a youtube channel I was checking for learning latex.
Now the thing is that as I thought texmaker is just an editor in this regard, I will need to install latex separately. So I used "sudo apt-get install texlive-full".
But before the installation is complete, I decided to run texmaker out of curiosity, and it already works and produces the output as shown in the tutorial.
Am sorry if this is stupid of me to ask something like this, but how does texmaker work already if I don't have latex installed as of yet? and if texmaker installs it alongside the editor, what did I just do by installing texlive?
Can someone please enlighten me. am really confused!
PS: I am completely new to this, so please ignore my stupidity.
