LaTeX /

Various LaTeX classes. Note that some of this exists as independent LaTeX repostiories (e.g., ouexam, beamerthemes). You can find these repositories on [Github][].

Installation approach 1: Git

git clone this repository into somewhere suitable in your local LaTeX tree. Then you can simply git pull to update to newer versions. This means you have a lot of irrelevant git-related files in your LaTeX tree, but it’s simple to manage.

Installation approach 2: Make

To install, ensure that $TEXMFHOME is set to your personal texmf tree (e.g., ~/.texmf), then:

git clone
cd LaTeX
make install

Everything should just work beyond that point (fingers crossed! ☺), barring any backwards incompatible changes to classes or the like.

For developers only

Normal users of the LaTeX repository should ignore the following!

The beamerthemes, lectures, listings, and ouexam subdirectories are git subtrees pointing to independent repositories. If you’re intending to edit the contents of these directories, you make a separate clone of the original repository.

To pull upstream changes to the subtrees (e.g., for ouexam): git subtree pull --prefix=ouexam --squash ouexam master

Cloning the repository will lose the subtree associations. To restore these:

git remote add -f beamerthemes
git remote add -f lectures
git remote add -f listings
git remote add -f ouexam

then update using the command above.
