TeXmacs inside GNU/Linux distributions
General | Sources | Linux | MacOS | Windows | Knoppix

The following GNU/Linux distributions provide packages or third-part packages for TeXmacs:

Please report any other distributions with sufficiently up-to-date TeXmacs packages to us. The up-to-date list of distributions with TeXmacs is maintained by Andrey Grozin.


The portage tree of Gentoo usually contains an outdated version of TeXmacs. An up-to-date version can be found in the Gentoo science overlay.

First time installation:

  1. emerge layman

  2. layman -a science

  3. Add the line: source /usr/portage/local/layman/make.conf to your /etc/make.conf

  4. emerge layman

  5. Add the line: app-office/texmacs ~x86 to your /etc/portage/packages.keywords (of course, assuming your computer is x86)

  6. emerge texmacs

Updating TeXmacs

  1. layman -s science

  2. emerge texmacs

Open Suse

Recent versions of OpenSUSE contain rather up-to-date TeXmacs. Just use yast to install it.


Ubuntu is based on Debian "unstable", and therefore contains TeXmacs. You can (probably) install an up-to-date TeXmacs from Debian "experimental".
