I recently had upgraded my machine from a 12.04 installation to a 12.10 version. I use LaTeX for my publication work and therefore I use TexLive and Kile, both of which are on the Ubuntu Package list.
On my upgrade to the latest version of Ubuntu, the texlive files have mixed up the configurations and therefore the distribution is not able to find the relevant fonts I have used in my earlier documents.
In this context, I downloaded the ISO file for TexLive from the TexLive website first. I then completely removed the texlive package from my system and the directories storing the TexLive configurations. Finally, I mounted the ISO file and installed TexLive on my system. I set the paths according to the recommendations of the installer and therefore the files are now compiling through the use of the command prompt.
However, I prefer Kile as an IDE for latex. Whenever, I try to install Kile it also asks to download the tex-common, texlive-* packages and their corresponding dependencies.
I therefore downloaded the kile package to a local directory by using
apt-get download kile
and then attempted to install kile by using
sudo dpkg --force-all -i kile*
After this point, the Synaptic Manager tells me that the kile package is broken and it should be repaired by installing the relevant dependencies. The Software Manager also shows its window. How do I stop this from happening, or is there another better IDE for kile? Do have to really go through the painful way of compiling kile from source?
