When I tried to writing an IEEE format paper. And I wished to use latex within Ubuntu 12.04. So, I searched for latex editor and found Texmaker which is fascinated. You can install it by command below.
$ sudo apt-get install texmaker
Everything went fine but when I used it to write an IEEE format paper, first problem I got is cannot finding proper font for generating PDF, showing in error log. Then, I found out that it has to install font package to solve this problem. Which you can install by this command.
$ sudo apt-get install texlive-fonts-recommended
The second problem was using a BibTex file is not working. Because, it is missing IEEE style for generating .bbl file. Therefore, I had to install IEEE style by next command.
$ sudo apt-get install texlive-publishers
Finally, I got Texmaker that ready for writing my paper. Good job, Texmaker.
