Here are some websites where you can find tutorials and information about LaTeX:
- A not so short introduction to LaTeX
How to install and use LaTeX
- If you are using Linux then you should install Texlive using your favorite software manager. Suggested editors are: texmaker, kile, emacs (for the power users); you can install all these editors using your favorite software manager.
- If you are using Windows then you should install Miktex; suggested editor: texmaker; there are many other Latex editors for Windows but I am not familiar with them.
- If you are using MacOSX then you should install TexShop. It comes with its own editor. You can also use texmaker.
Beamer is a special LaTeX package that you can use to create great
presentations. You should be
able to install easily beamer from Miktex or Texshop. If you use Linux
you can install the beamer package using a software manager.
You can download the beamer manual here
