I am new to Linux. Just installed suse 10.0. I was wondering how I can
compile LaTeX files and where I can download such compilers. Thanks.

SuSE 10.0 has LaTeX built-in. Use Software Update to install it, if

you used one of the oversimplified installs.

Use Yast to install the te_latex package.

It contains almost everything you need to use LaTeX.

Thanks a lot to everyone who has replied.

I have installed the te_latex package now, but I don't know how I can
use the package. It doesn't seem to appear on the applications list.
Sorry, I am a newbie, any help would be great. Thanks.

It's not clear to me what you mean by "use the package".

If someone has given you a LaTeX document,
let's say mydoc.tex, then do:

o open a terminal window
o change directory to where the file mydoc.tex lives
o at the terminal's prompt type "latex mydoc" (without the
quotation marks)
you will see a lot of messages scroll by on the screen
o type "xdvi mydoc" to view the typeset document

If you want to write your own documents in LaTeX, and have
not done so before, start by reading a book on LaTeX.

I think the word "newbie" apparently covers only the stuff BEFORE this
line.

Thanks! That's very helpful. I have used LaTeX on windows before. I
just didn't know how to compile on Linux.
