New linux (mint) user, with pdfTeX, Version 3.14159265-2.6-1.40.18 (TeX Live 2017/Debian), using TexStudio (that might change)
I have custom files (sty's and whatnot) in a folder that I cannot move (shared with other computers) that I would like to be able to
\input in all my tex files (including when I use TexStudio or another editor with building capabilities).
On windows, I'm able to create an environment variable
TEXINPUTS to include that folder on latex (miktex) search path. On linux mint I tried (failed) the following :
- directly in a terminal with
export TEXINPUTS=~/Dropbox/Templates//:(only works inside said terminal)
- Adding the previous line in
.bashrc, .profile and /etc/environment. The first one made it work in any terminal.
Now it works in TexStudio if I launch TexStudio from any terminal. But not if I launch it from GUI. Is there a file I'm missing that could affect GUI launched applications ? Barring that a way to make it like texstudio was launched from a terminal ?
I also looked into :
There is supposed to be a
texmf folder I can put files in, so I figured I could put a symbolic link to my folder there, but :
- I haven't done a symbolic link in ~ 15 years
- I can't find said
(apparently that would be bad)
Any help welcome !
