Does Fedora have a LaTex program / editor built in

Does Fedora come with a LaTex program / editor already installed. If so, how do I find out what version it is and how do I get started using it. Thanks for any and all comments and instructions.

There are some of them:

  • Texstudio: A feature-rich editor for LaTeX documents -> sudo dnf install texstudio
  • Gnome-latex: Integrated LaTeX Environment for the GNOME desktop -> sudo dnf install gnome-latex
  • Texmaker: LaTeX editor -> sudo dnf install texmaker
  • Lyx: WYSIWYM (What You See Is What You Mean) document processor -> sudo dnf install lyx

and also as always vim with plugin for Latex

  • vim-latex : Tools to view, edit and compile LaTeX documents in Vim

Test it and select which you prefer…

I’ve recently discovered in Software a nice app written in Python and Gtk:

I would suggest Lyx. It is an incredible editor, and it is pretty widely used among physicists, mathematicians, etc.

Vimtex is another great Vim plugin for LaTeX: https://github.com/lervag/vimtex

To answer the question, Fedora does not come with one pre-installed, but others’ have written, there are quite a few that you can install from the repositories.
