What is your operating system? Windows? (Which version?) Mac? Linux? Other?
Sorry if this is a stupid question but how to i get Latex on my computer. I would like to be able to create mathematics on my computer (like on this forum) and save them as p.d.f's (or whatever) but I have no idea how to go about doing this.
Thanks for any help
With Linux, you can typically get everything you need in your Linux distribution. For Windows, one way to get everything you need is to install the following software, in this order:
A Text Editor, preferably one that does LaTeX syntax highlighting. I like TextPad.
There are some nice customizations possible like inverse search, line numbers, etc., that can save you some effort once you get going.
