My friend Markus found a clever way in Debian -based distros such as Ubuntu or Debian itself. Now most people wanting something like this have a *ix laptop and in that necessary installations for LaTex. This tip will only work if you have already the installation of LaTex on your computer so basic idea: you use your own installation and you download the files from your school/uni server. You can also use just
$ scp -r [email protected]:workDir . but the next way is more visually-pleasing.
Places/Connect to Server in the GUI
Put your credentials there, for example username as
hhh and host as
input the password
now it may mount to the root so you need to find the dir, easy way is to login there with ssh like
"eval 'ssh-agent'; ssh-add ~/.ssh/school; ssh [email protected]" (replace ' with programmig thing) -- and now you should mount to your local -dir or do
$ cd ~/. Then you get the path with
$pwd -- it may be something like
/u/87/username/unix, depending on your server -structure. Now in Debian, you can create Bookmark so next time you can click it in the menu, below an example.
After this, you can use your tools/editors in your own devices easily. Have fun!
