If the OP really does decide to start writing his own LaTeX code, I suggest
Kile.  It's part of KDE, so there are some library requirements, but I don't
recall them really being all that huge.  It's nice to help you get the hang
of things, too, since it has a few wizards and whatnot that can lay out some
basic documents.
