A LaTeX setup for Mac OS X

A simple workflow for a fairly standard LaTeX setup for the Mac.

  1. Download the MacTex disk image. Instructions for downloading and installing the disk image are available at the MacTex site. This will install the Texlive distribution, the TeXShop editor, and the BibDesk bibliography manager.
  2. To add version control support for your documents, install Bazaar for Mac OS X.
  3. Nicola Talbot’s “LaTeX for complete novices” is a no-frills tutorial which gets you started immediately.  For writing a PhD thesis, follow this up with “Using LaTeX to write a PhD thesis”.
