I was using Microsoft Windows 7 and I had installed TeXStudioand Latex flavour MikTex. Both were installed according to the instructions given in this
─╣ink. I developed a document there and now I am on Ubuntu 12.04LTEand I installed TeXStudio but could not find MikTexfor Ubuntu. So I installed TexLive. When I try to compile my previously developed document, it gives error. It is missing many .styfiles. I tried to manually add sty files but actually it is hectic to add all the files. I have very long document and it was working fine in windows. Please help!

The Linux version of MiKTeX was always declared as provisional, and is meanwhile not anymore available for download from MiKTeX.org. Therefore you are forced anyhow to use TeX Live, but apparently you used the pre-installed version of Ubuntu. For this issue we have a good Q & A here on TeX.SX: How to install "vanilla" TeXLive on Debian or Ubuntu? (and judging from comments this seems indeed to have helped you).

But apart from this there is still a number of packages, where MiKTeX is more liberal in estimation, what is called free. For several fonts of this type you can execute the script getnonfreefonts, that is included in TeX Live. For other packages, maybe also some fonts, there is no other solution then to manually install them. You can read for this these questions and answers: Where do I place my own .sty or .cls files, to make them available to all my .tex files? and especially for fonts Manual font installation.

Regarding TeXstudio: This is a multi-platform program, there is a version for Linux as well as one for Windows.
