Latex In Libreoffice


LibreOffice Template Center is the webpage where you can browse or download LibfeOffice templates for your needs. Using LaTex in PowerPoint. Popular Keywords. I use libreoffice draw to create figures, some of which contain math formulas. I'd really like to have the math symbols look similar/identical to the rest of the document. I've been able to access the main formula fonts by symbolic-linking to all the font files in the TeXLive installation under my /.fonts directory, then editing the pull-down. TexMaths makes use of LaTeX program in your system to produce the output on LibreOffice document. So of course to run it you need LaTeX itself. In Ubuntu, it's enough to install texlive-latex-base package with its small dependencies: $ sudo apt-get install texlive-latex-base. TexMaths is an addon designed to provide LaTeX support into LibreOffice. LaTeX equations can be inserted as images (SVG or PNG formats) and the LaTeX code is saved into the image attribute for further editing.

2) Select Use LibreOffice dialogs in Open/Save dialogs to display and use the LibreOffice dialogs for opening and saving files. 3) For Linux operating systems only, select Use LibreOffice dialogs in Print Dialogs to display and use the LibreOffice dialogs for printing your documents. 4) Click OK to save your settings and close the dialog.

Writer2LaTeX is a LaTeX/BibTeX export filter and front end for Writer


Writer2LaTeX provides Writer export filters for LaTeX/BibTeX

This enables you to typeset your Writer documents with LaTeX, which does a better job typesetting text,in particular text with formulas. Writer2LaTeX gives you extensive control over the export of formatting. It can convert your document with as much formatting as possible preserved, or you can completely control the LaTeX code generated for each style in the source document – or even remove all formatting.

Furthermore, Writer2LaTeX makes Writer act as a frontend for LaTeX. This feature integrates Writer with your LaTeX installation, and lets you invoke LaTeX and view the resulting file directly from the provided toolbar.

Writer2LaTeX also enables you to use BibTeX as bibliographic database in Writer (this feature can be used independently of the LaTeX export).

For information about other features, documentation, source code and development releases see

Recently I had to do a homework assignment using linear regression in OLS equations and LaTex. I used Libreoffice in Linux Mint 16.2 and the TexMaths ( extension to create these formulas. The formulas come from Gordon’s (2015) Regression Analysis for the Social Sciences 2nd ed. The equations are basic but I hope it may save someone some time.

Here is the sample mean:

Libreoffice Texmath

bar{y} = frac{1}{n}sum_{i=1}^n y_i

Here is the sample variance:
sigma^2 = frac{sumlimits_{i=1}^{n}(y_i – bar{y})^2} {n – 1}

Here is the sample standard deviation:
sigma = sqrtfrac{sumlimits_{i=1}^{n}(y_i – bar{y})^2} {n – 1}
Regression Function OLS

Population regression line:
Y_i = beta_0 + beta_1 X_i + epsilon_i

Sample regression line:
hat{Y}_i = hat{beta}_0 + hat{beta}_1 X_i + hat{epsilon}_i

Sample slope:
hat{beta}_1 = frac{sum(X_i – bar{X}) (Y_i – bar{Y})} {sum(X_i – bar{X})^2}

Sample intercept:
hat{beta}_0 = bar{Y} – hat{beta}_1 bar{X}

Conditional Variance:
hat{sigma}^2 = frac{sum{hat{epsilon}}^2_i} {n – 2} = frac{sum(Y_i – hat{Y}_i)^2} {n – 2}

Libre Office Add Ins

Conditional Standard Deviation:
hat{sigma} = sqrtfrac{sum(Y_i – hat{Y}_i)^2} {n – 2}

Sample slope standard error:
hat{sigma}{_hat{beta}{_1}} = frac{hat{sigma}} {sqrt{sum(X_i – bar{X})^2}}

Sample intercept standard error:
hat{sigma}{_hat{beta}}{_0} = hat{sigma} sqrtfrac{sum(X_i)^2} {nsum(X_i – bar{X})^2}
