Depends on the type of texture and the finish you want.
Better read the labels, instructions or the manufacturer's web site first!

just regular orange peel out of a gun. i've done a couple where I primed first and them painted and uneven paint results. Seems that the texture sucks up the paint pretty good.this is what the instrution on the texture tub said.

I prime over old oil-base paint before water-based texturing so it sticks better. I shoot tex right onto latex paint or new drywall.

I always latex prime the texture before paint for even results. Sucking up primer is cheaper than sucking up paint.
