    Installing Kile or not?

    Hi,

    I need to do some stuff with latex and I heard, that Kile is a good Latex Editor, but I also heard that it is not recommended to install software originally developed for KDE to ubuntu or any non-KDE using environment.

    Can someone please help me, as I have to have this work done by friday?

    My alternative would be using a Live-USB in persistence and installing Kubuntu an Kile to that (tried that with a 2GB USB on my laptop but the laptop just refused to update at some point so I had to Ctrl+Alt+F2 myself to a shutdown...
    I could try it also on my dektop PC but I'm afraid it won't really help.

    Thank you all!

    Hi, as far as I know you shouldn't have any problems installing kde software to a gnome environment, kile will just install the kde libraries it requires.

    No problem at all to install Kile under gnome. I have it running (also for latex) without issues. Same for other KDE based application (gwenview, digikam, krita, koffice, ...)
    I know others running kile under fedora (gnome) also without issues.

    Its not about having some issues with kile, its just how much **** space will it consume and will I be able to remove it completely, when I have my stuff done?
    (Have done the stuff with TeXnicCenter on Windows now)

    There's lots of great KDE software and no reason to not install it on Gnome.

    well, I've read about Qt or something that automatically gets installed when using KDE software, and that this is pretty heavy stuff, both in CPU and disk usage. Could anyone pleas make this a little clearer?

    Thanks

    It would install QT if you don't have it, but it's really not that big of a deal. On any kind of modern computer, you won't even notice the disk space or CPU. Just install it and see, you can easily uninstall it if you want.

    Okay, thanks for all your input, I'll try it then

    I was just confused, because I tried to delete some of the stuff automatically installed with ubuntu and when I removed that stuff there still was a hidden folder in my home folder. i.e. I removed the sudoku game but still have the foler /home/.sudoku how can I get rid of all the stuff a program installs (seems like windows to me, once you install something it never gets deleted completely, what would be pretty stupid...)
