I am currently giving a LaTeX course for students. Most linux users have TeX Live 2009 installed which is much too old, since I want to use
biber. If they install TeX Live from the website they can not access it because the PATH is not set up correctly.
I now found out that one can solve this by adding the PATH
.profile. However I wonder if this could be configured for all users?
Furthermore I have a problem with the mac users.
pdflatex starts from within TeXShop, but is not found from any other editor. We use TeXstudio for example. Any hint what could be wrong there?
