Installing pdflatex

On Debian-based systems, you can install "pdflatex" with:

sudo apt-get install texlive-latex-extra


"File `todonotes.sty' not found."

This means you need to run the above apt-get command, because you are missing one of the LaTeX extra packages.

"File `tocstyle.sty' not found."

If your distro doesn't have that you can download it from and place it in the root directory of the book.
