Latex editor

I just downloaded Kile using Synaptic package manager and tried running existing Latex files. It gave me an error message saying that the necessary packages (ie. \usepackage{natbib} )haven't been installed? Is there any way that I can download everything I need to do abstracts, papers, posters and presentations?Shuo

There is indeed a way to get all this stuff. I suggest you get tetex-base, tex-common, tetex-extra and tetex-bin from the repositories. This should give you everything you need. Equally, any little obscurities (I needed some funky things) can normally be downloaded from a sly google search. Hope this helps.Joe
