Installing Group Packages on Ubuntu

Group packages are managed using personal package archives, so they can be installed using the regular Ubuntu package manager. To add the LaTeX packages archive type the following:

$> sudo add-apt-repository ppa:solidsuccs/latexpackages

$> sudo add-apt-repository ppa:solidsuccs/codes

$> sudo apt update

If this works correctly you can search for group packages using apt search as below.

$> apt search solidsuccs

solidsuccs-course/xenial,now 2017.10.04-1 amd64

Install course Latex class file

solidsuccs-presentation/xenial,now 2017.10.04-1 amd64

Install a beamer template for the Solids research group

solidsuccs-reader/xenial,now 2018.02.10-2 amd64 [installed]

To install, use the regular apt install command

$> apt install solidsuccs-presentation

$> apt install solidsuccs-course

$> apt install solidsuccs-reader
