I’d like to install a package (microtype 2.5 beta 4) under TeX Live that isn’t available in the official repository.
Now, I know that it’s usually enough to put the package under
~/texmf/tex/latex/ but I was wondering if I couldn’t use
tlmgr to do the grunt work for me.
In particular, I noticed that
tlmgr has a
--repository option that can be used to pass it a local repository path. However, the following command unfortunately fails (understandably, since there is no TeX Live database file
texlive.tlpdb there to read from):
wget http://xetex.tk/mediawiki/images/1/1c/Microtype.tds.zip unzip Microtype.tds.zip tlmgr --repository=./Microtype.tds/ update microtype
I was wondering if there was still a possibility to make this work.
