Hello, friends. In the daily use of a modern system like Linux, it is normal to want to have applications of all kinds to show the strength of the operating system. Many people use LaTeX, and therefore applications like KLatexFormula become necessary. Let’s go.
What is KLatexFormula?
According to the tool’s website:
KLatexFormula is an easy-to-use graphical application for generating images (that you can drag and drop, copy and paste or save to disk) from LaTeX equations.
This means that with this application, you can have LaTeX equations in the form of images. A real wonder for science teachers but also for students and enthusiasts.
In short, it provides a fairly simple graphical interface where you have to enter the equation, and it automatically transforms into images, so you can use it wherever you want.
The application is completely open source, so you should have no problems with the license. Besides this, it has versions for Windows, macOS, and, of course, for Linux supporting many distributions.
Fortunately, the tool is present in the official repositories of many distributions, so it is easy to do.
Debian, Ubuntu and derivatives such as Linux Mint.
sudo apt install klatexformula
sudo dnf install klatexformula
But there are packages for openSUSE
sudo zypper in klatexformula
As you can see, it is a well-supported distribution for Linux.
When the installation is finished, you can run it from the main menu…
As you can see all you have to do is create a LaTeX formula and click on Run LaTex and the image will be generated for use.
If you would rather not use it anymore, then it is best to uninstall it from the system, to save disk space.The process is similar to installing it:
For Debian, Ubuntu and derivatives such as Linux Mint
sudo apt remove klatexformula
If you use Fedora
sudo dnf remove klatexformula
Finally, for openSUSE run
sudo zypper rm klatexformula
It’s as simple as that.
In this post, you learned how to install a simple but important application for working with LaTeX. It is KLatexFormula that with a couple of clicks allows you to generate images from a LaTeX formula.
