What happened to me was: in Ubuntu 11.10 I defined the environment variable TEXMFCN to point at my home directory $TEXMFCNF=$HOME/texmf/web2c export TEXMFCNF For some reason, after the upgrade to 14.04, the bash gave a different interpretation to my setting: to search the latex packages only in my home directory. So, commenting that line in ...

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 ...

You can install a much more minimalistic texlive using profiles. Have a look at this install script I use in my github repo. I have this install just the packages I need to build the PDFs using travis-ci: https://github.com/BPA-CSIRO-Workshops/handout-template/blob/master/developers/texlive_install.sh The profile file is in the same directory.

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.

First make sure it isn't already installed — I thought it was part of the ‘basic’ installation. If you cannot have administrator privileges to install with the Package Manager, you can download from a repositoy babel-english.tar.lzma. Unzip it (twice) to get a texmf folder. You just have to copy the contents of this folder at the root of the MiKTeX ...

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 ...

This is just to have more space for a comment to Norbert. BTW: Shouldn't tex-common be added to that equivs build file provided on the TUG web page (In my case we mount TL via NFS for easier maintenance, so I'd like to not have any of these packages installed in the system). Just to be clear I do not have problems with maxima, my problem was with texmaker ...

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 ...

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 ...

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 ...

Same thing happend to me, while updating existing 2.9 installation from the newest repository in August 2014. I went around the problem by first updating half of packages and then the other half, because updater allows you to select the packages.

Even though I suspect mentioning MS Word might get you banned for life on TeX.SX, this looks like an interesting feature. It appears to be a Macro, so review this perhaps: Record or Run a Macro And after reading this review by this guy who shows as one of the developers, mrsparkle713, I think it might help to contact one of them. This is an easy plugin ...
