In order to use synctex, you need to load the module for texlive 2012. Our workstation build uses TL2007 by default.
In order to utilize it, type the following on a command line (or your login script):
module load texlive
If you type module list, you should see the following output:
Currently Loaded Modulefiles: 1) texlive/2012
In order to configure synctex in Kile and Ocular, follow the instructions on this page: http://linuxunderthesky.blogspot.com/2011/09/synctex-in-kile-and-okular.html
In order to configure synctex to work in TeXWorks:
- Go to Edit->Preferences->Typesetting.
- Click on /usr/ias/texlive/2012/bin/x86_64-linux and click on the green arrow, so that it is first on the list.
- If this path doesn't up, then you did not run "module load texlive"
- Open a TeX file.
If you did not run synctex on the file yet, click on the green arrow, so that it will create the .synctex.gz file.
- Then if you do Ctrl-Click on the source or output file, it will navigate to the corresponding place on the window.
