I normally use
pdflatex to compile latex documents, but on NixOS I do not see that
pdflatex is available to install via
$ nix-env -i pdflatex.
$ nix-env -qa pdflatex error: selector ‘pdflatex’ matches no derivations
pdflatex do not appear under search at nixos.org/nixos/packages.html either. However, I did notice there the package
rubber, which apparently wraps other latex programs including
pdflatex. After installing
rubber and attempting to compile my latex document with it I get the following "pdflatex is not found" error.
$ rubber --pdf doc.tex compiling doc.tex... pdflatex not found Running pdflatex failed.
How can I install pdflatex to compile latex documents on NixOS?
rubber available for installation via
pdflatex, a dependency of
rubber, is not?
As a side-note, the 'Tex/Latex' section of the manual does not explain this.
