Gummi is a LaTeX editor. It is a GTK+ application which runs on Linux and Windows systems.


Gummi has many useful features needed to edit LaTeX source code, such as:[2]

  • Live preview: The pdf is shown without the need to compile it manually
  • Snippets: LaTeX snippets can be configured
  • Graphical insertion of tables and images
  • Templates and wizards for new document creation
  • Project management
  • Bibliography management
  • SyncTeX integration

However, it lacks some features available in other editors:


Gummi is available in the official repositories of various Linux distributions, such as[3] Gentoo, Fedora, Arch Linux and Debian.[4] Gummi can also be installed on Ubuntu by adding a ppa [1] (however, since Ubuntu 12.04 Gummi is already present in official repositories).
