What is easy is, just like beauty, in the eye of the beholder, but e.g.
Quantian has a few LaTeX GUIs that allow you to point and click your way to
editing formulas. LyX, KLyx, Kile, TeXMacs, ... were/are all included at
different points in time.  The KDE editor Kile may be a start. 

All of these may help, or drive you up the wall.  Let us know the score at
the end of the match :) All you need to do is to boot your trusted Quantian


Those are my principles, and if you don't like them... well, I have others.
