I have used MikTeX before and I am now trying to get hold of latex in Ubuntu. First of all, I am not using Kile nor LyX. I am using the "gedit-terminal" combo. I write my tex files in gedit then compile it in the terminal. By doing so, I have no problem getting the basics (such as articles and reports) done. However, I have problems with installing new .cls files.
I am trying to use res.cls for my resume. I understand that I have to have res.cls installed. I downloaded it from CTAN and I have copy and paste it into /usr/share/texmf-tetex/tex/latex/base. However, when I do "latex myCV.tex" in the terminal, in return, I get the error messageI found a way to get around it, which is to specifically state where is "res.cls". I know there must be a more efficient way to get around this, if not, I think I will have nightmares compiling a tex file with tens of additional packages/styles/fonts."! LaTeX Error: File `res.cls' not found."
Any help would be appreciated.
