Summary
Typesetting
Debian Science typesetting packages

This metapackage will install Debian Science packages related to typesetting. You might also be interested in the use::typesetting debtag.

The list to the right includes various software projects which are of some interest to the Debian Science Project. Currently, only a few of them are available as Debian packages. It is our goal, however, to include all software in Debian Science which can sensibly add to a high quality Debian Pure Blend.

For a better overview of the project's availability as a Debian package, each head row has a color code according to this scheme:

If you discover a project which looks like a good candidate for Debian Science to you, or if you have prepared an unofficial Debian package, please do not hesitate to send a description of that project to the Debian Science mailing list

AUCTeX is a comprehensive customizable integrated environment for writing input files for TeX/LaTeX/ConTeXt/Texinfo using GNU Emacs. Currently XEmacs ships with its own AUCTeX version.

It supports processing source files by running TeX and related tools (such as output filters, post processors for generating indices and bibliographies, and viewers) from inside Emacs. AUCTeX allows browsing through the errors reported by TeX, while it moves the cursor directly to the reported error, and displays some documentation for that particular error. This will even work when the document is spread over several files.

AUCTeX can automatically indent LaTeX source, either line by line or for an entire document, and has a special outline feature which can greatly assist in getting an overview of a document.

AUCTeX is written entirely in Emacs Lisp, and may therefore be enhanced with new features for specific needs. It comes with a large range of handy Emacs macros. It is a GNU project, and documentation for all its features is accessible via the Emacs info browser.

The biblatex package by Philipp Lehman is becoming the definitive citation management tool for LaTeX users. Biblatex has relied on the venerable BibTeX program only for sorting and generating a very generic .bbl file without any formatting instruction. Everything else is taken care of by biblatex, which provides a powerful and flexible macro interface for authors of citation styles.

Biber offers a large superset of BibTeX functionality for BibLaTeX users. In addition it offers full UTF-8 (Unicode 6.0) capabilities, fully customisable sorting, output to GraphViz to help visualise complex crossrefs, support for remote data sources, structural validation of the data against the (customisable) data model, and a lot more.

Bibus is a bibliographic database which has been developed with LibreOffice/ OpenOffice.org in mind. It can directly insert citations and format the bibliographic index in an open OpenOffice.org Writer document. The main features are

  • hierarchical organization of the references with user-defined keys
  • designed for multiuser-environments (share databases between users)
  • a search engine supporting live queries
  • on-line PubMed access
  • import of PubMed (Medline), EndNote/Refer, RIS and BibTeX records.

Bibus will use an SQLite-database by default for storage (via the SQLite3 module available in Python >2.5). But it also supports MySQL-databases. If you want to use a MySQL-database, make sure, that you have the python-mysqldb package installed.

Debian GNU/Linux is widely used at universities to do research and to write papers with LaTeX. The package diploma contains examples which illustrate the possible ways to do this effectively with Debian GNU/Linux. Each example consists of a source tree where you can do "make" in the top level directory and then the source code is compiled, the measurement data are processed, and the results are converted into nice figures. Then the text is processed and combined with the figures to a print file.

FeynMF is a LaTeX package for easy drawing of professional-quality Feynman diagrams, illustrations that depict the fundamental interactions of subatomic particles. The diagrams may be created using either the Metafont or MetaPost programs. FeynMF lays out most diagrams satisfactorily from the structure of the graph without any need for manual intervention. Nevertheless all the power of Metafont or MetaPost is available for more obscure cases.

Note that you will need the texlive-metapost package in order to use the MetaPost-based version of FeynMF.

A set of utilities for manipulating DSC compliant postscript. The following programs are included:

impose: A preprocessor to pstops for creating 2-up printouts. It tries to remove white space from the printout by probing the original postscript for the printed area's bounding box. This makes the output more esthetic than a simplistic layout of non-cropped original pages.

bboxx: Extracts the bounding boxes of a postscript file, with the option of entering the bounding box into the file. This program uses the ghostscript bbox device.

fixtd: Sets options in a Postscript file asking the printer to turn on tumbling or duplex printing.

psbl: Rearranges pages in a file to create booklets.

Ipe supports making small figures for inclusion into LaTeX documents as well as making multi-page PDF presentations Ipe's main features are:

  • Entry of text as LaTeX source code. This makes it easy to enter mathematical expressions, and to reuse the LaTeX-macros of the main document. In the display text is displayed as it will appear in the figure.
  • Produces pure Postscript/PDF, including the text. Ipe converts the LaTeX-source to PDF or Postscript when the file is saved.
  • It is easy to align objects with respect to each other (for instance, to place a point on the intersection of two lines, or to draw a circle through three given points) using various snapping modes.
  • Users can provide ipelets (Ipe plug-ins) to add functionality to Ipe. This way, Ipe can be extended for each task at hand.
  • The text model is based on Unicode, and has been tested with Korean, Chinese, and Japanese.

Package lua5.2 is recommended if using Ipe with LaTeX.

Package texlive-latex-recommended enables unicode text entry (for accented characters).

latexdiff compares two LaTeX files and marks up significant differences between them (i.e. a diff for LaTeX files). It generates a new LaTeX file containing the annotated differences.

Various options are available for visual markup using standard LaTeX packages such as 'color.sty'. Changes not directly affecting visible text, for example in formatting commands, are still marked in the LaTeX source.

A rudimentary revision facilility is provided by another Perl script, 'latexrevise', which accepts or rejects all changes. Manual editing of the difference file can be used to override this default behaviour and accept or reject selected changes only.

LyX is an almost WYSIWYG-frontend for LaTeX. It makes the power and typesetting quality of LaTeX available for people who are used to word processors. Since LyX supports LaTeX's concept of general mark-ups, it is even easier and faster to create professional quality documents with it than with usual word processors. It is also possible to use LaTeX commands within LyX, so nothing of LaTeX's power is lost.

You can extend the functionality of LyX by installing these packages:

  • chktex: check for typographical errors
  • gnuhtml2latex: import HTML documents
  • groff: improved table formatting in plain text exports
  • latex-xcolor: for coloured change tracking
  • librsvg2-bin, inkscape: use the SVG image format in LyX documents
  • linuxdoc-tools: export SGML LinuxDoc documents
  • mythes-*: use the OpenOffice.org/LibreOffice Thesaurus
  • noweb: import noweb files
  • rcs: integrated version control
  • sgmltools-lite: export SGML DocBook documents
  • texlive-xetex, etoolbox: use the XeTeX typesetting system
  • wv: import MS Word documents
The package is enhanced by the following packages: xul-ext-lyz

Sketch is a simple system for producing line drawings of three-dimensional objects and scenes. Sketch is intended to produce finely wrought, mathematically-based illustrations with no extraneous detail and be able to easily overlay TeX math and text. The input language is reminiscent of PSTricks, so will be easy to learn for current PSTricks users. It generates either PSTricks or TikZ/PGF code as output.

Note that this package is not the interactive vector drawing program now known as skencil.

The package is enhanced by the following packages: sketch-doc

GNU TeXmacs is a free scientific text editor, which was both inspired by TeX and GNU Emacs.

The editor allows you to write structured documents via a WYSIWYG (what-you-see-is-what-you-get) and a user friendly interface. New styles may be created by the user. The program implements high-quality typesetting algorithms and TeX fonts, which help you to produce professionally looking documents.

The high typesetting quality still goes through for automatically generated formulas, which makes TeXmacs suitable as an interface for computer algebra systems. TeXmacs also supports the Guile/Scheme extension language, so that you may customize the interface and write your own extensions to the editor.

This package contains the architecture dependent files.

XFig is a menu-driven tool that allows the user to draw and manipulate objects interactively in an X window. The resulting pictures can be saved, printed on postscript printers, or converted to a variety of other formats (e.g. to allow inclusion in LaTeX documents or web pages) using the transfig program.

This package contains the xfig program itself.

You should think about installing the transfig package to export the graphics to several common formats. You should also think about installing xfig-doc, which contains the documentation and xfig-libs, which contains several clip art libraries.

GtkMathView is a C++ rendering engine for MathML documents. It provides an interactive view that can be used for browsing and editing MathML markup.

GtkMathView reads MathML documents by means of a frontend whose purpose is to traverse the MathML document (or part of it) and to appropriately instantiate GtkMathView's internal data structures that are suitable for rendering it. Currently the following frontends are supported: libxml2 (tree view using libxml2 API), libxml2 reader (event view using libxml2 reader API), GMetaDOM (tree view using DOM API), custom (application-specific view with application-provided callbacks).

GtkMathView renders MathML documents through a backend whose purpose is to provide an interface between the portable rendering engine and the platform-specific capabilities (like retrieving fonts, drawing on the screen, and so on). Currently the following backends are provided: GTK+, GTK+ widget, PostScript, SVG, AbiWord.

This package includes utilities to view and render MathML documents.
