Install Texmaker in Ubuntu 14.04

Texmaker is a clean, highly configurable LaTeX editor with good hot key support and extensive LaTeX documentation. Texmaker integrates many tools needed to develop documents with LaTeX, in just one application. It has some nice features such as syntax highlighting, insertion of 370 mathematical symbols with only one click, and “structure view” of the document for easier navigation.

Texmaker includes unicode support, spell checking, auto-completion, code folding and a built-in pdf viewer with synctex support and continuous view mode

The latest version 4.2 comes with new features and bug fixes


  • script support has been added (only for the text editor part – “User” menu)
  • with the new option “-n” for the command line, a new instance of Texmaker can be launched (will break the synchronization with the pdf viewers and others feautures)
  • hu and nl translations have been updated
  • the windows and macosx lion/maverick versions are now compiled with Qt 5.2.1

Bugs fixed

  • while loading the last session, the bug about the focus has been fixed
  • a bug about the “commands” combo box in the main toolbar has been fixed
  • a typo in the russian translation has been fixed
  • a bad trigger detection for the snippets has been fixed
