TeXing with Gummi

There’s a new player in the game of LaTeX editors: Gummi. It was recommeded to me yesterday during the Berlin Linuxtag. The most striking feature is the auto-compile feature. No need to push a button, if it does not detect the user to enter text for more than 2 seconds of, Gummi tries to compile the document in the background. I’ll do some further testing, but so far I like what I saw.

Installation under Xubuntu:

  1. Open a terminal and enter: sudo add-apt-repository ppa:gummi/gummi, see https://launchpad.net/~texworks/+archive/ppa for details.
  2. Run the following command:
    sudo apt-get --no-install-recommends install gummi
