Java

java/netbeans in /lboro/j2sdk_nb you need:

/lboro/j2sdk_nb/j2sdk1.4.2/bin

(for example) in your path to compile from the command line.

Latex

best to have a makefile in current directory with:

include /lboro/include/latexrules.mk

then, things like: 

make pic.eps
make file.dvi
make file.pdf
all work - remember you need to give the name of the file you want to make, not the name of the file you have.  

if your system is not managed my me, then create the /lboro and /lboro/include directory and copy latexrules.mk to the latter.
