Having the path to the TeX Live binaries in your path is indeed sufficient for other programs to find TeX Live. It is more of a question of installing the same thing twice (or rather a newer version and an older version). apt is the package manager of Ubuntu and it has no idea that you installed TeX Live unless you used apt to install it. Thus, if you don't ...

There is a problem with the autorun.inf file in TeXLive 2014. The instruction OPEN=install-tl.bat should be OPEN=install-windows-tl.bat. If you extract its content, you only have to double-click install-windows-tl.bat.

Do you know of the fontspec package? According to the documentation it "allows users of either XeTeX or LuaTeX to load OpenType fonts in a LaTeX document. No font installation is necessary, and font features can be selected and used as desired throughout the document." I use it with documents typeset using pdflatex on Mac, simply putting ...

Essentielly you're missing a pwb.map file which describes the correspondence between the virtual fonts and the actual, type 1 fonts, so that pdflatex or dvips can use them. You install it in your_local_texmf\ fonts\map\adobe` (not abobe!). That done: Add to your local updmap.cfg this line: Map pwb.map Run texhash (TeXLive or MacTeX) or Refresh FNBD ...

I could not install packages using tlmgr (I guess because, as jon pointed out, TL2013 is not maintained anymore). So I ended up using tlmgr uninstall to remove the TexLive "vanilla" installation, remove its path from \$PATH, and reinstall the Ubuntu version from scratch. It is good enough for me for the meantime, although it's true that I ended up installing ...

TikZ is not a "program", but a package for LaTeX (and other versions of TeX). If you just want to create graphics and don't know anything about (La)TeX you should make yourself familiar with that (e.g. by reading the article about LaTeX on wikipedia). If you are using LaTeX, you can use TikZ with \usepackage{tikz} if it is included in your TeX ...

suppose you have installed the TeXLive version from http://tug.org/texlive/ and now you want to install the editor Texmaker with apt-get install texmaker. Then Ubuntu's package manager tells you that you also have to install the TeXLive. This doesn't happen when faking the package manager of Ubuntu. If your Ubuntu uses the latest TeXLive version from Debian ...

A quick fix is to just put the .cls file next to the .tex file you're compiling (ie. in the same directory). Perhaps this is not a permanent enough solution for you (eg. if you're going to use this class file in many documents), but this is how I use IEEE's & OSA's journal class files (where once every few years at most I need to use a particular class ...
