- Multi-OS Portable TeX system 1 answer
What is the most common solution to getting TeX on the go.
I am looking for a way to fit everything onto a thumbdrive. (up to 8Gb?)
It needs to be able to have a text editor and a typesetting system. I tried installing my student-license WinEdt onto a thumbdrive and use MikTeX portable, but this is not compiling things properly.
I assume that the typeset system is one of the best available, so assuming that I get the system setup correctly, what other text editors would you recommend?
P.S. some systems I work on do no have acrobat. (ie. pdf not supported)
