A zine about Linux, typeset in LaTeX.
The pdf version is free. You can find it inside the
build folder for each issue. I will also issue a release, so you can check there, as well.
If you want to buy a paper version with a fancy colored cover, printed up as a little booklet and saddle stapled (just perfect for reading on the go), you can buy them from my etsy shop. I'll include a link here as I add each issue.
I am currently at work on the second issue. You can the raw output here, or download the .tex file and convert it to a pdf or the file of your choice.
I used a handful of packages to make this document, which I've listed below, along to their page on CTAN where you can read the full documentation.
- graphicx — Provides extended support for images.
- kpfonts — A different font than the AMS fonts, which is a little heavier and easier to read for some.
- makeidx — Creates indexes (or, indices, if you prefer). I didn't actually use this one. Maybe next time.
- geometry — Flexible and complete interfact to document dimensions.
- fancyhdr — Gives you more control over page headers and footers.
- multicol — Provides for more than two or more columns in selected areas.
- wrapfig — Allows you to wrap text around figures.
- hyperref — Support for hypertext (i.e., links). (Protip: use the hidelinks option to get rid of the annoying red boxes around links in the pdf form. Thanks to reddit user 0b0101011001001011 for this tip!)
- tabto — Allows you to set tab stops. (I used this one to get multiple paragraphs in a footnote. Still scratching my head about that one.)
- ulem — A package for making lines through text. In my case, I just wanted a simple strikethrough.
Also reddit user -LeopardShark- recommended using the package microtype to get finer typographical control. Maybe in the next issue.
