The message about the .csf file is spurious. The documentation is scanty and the bugs are probably many. However, up to a certain extent it works. I found a couple of Russian books with the help of Google books, that allows to export BibTeX data for the book. \begin{filecontents*}{\jobname.bib} @book{a, title={О правѣ наказанія: Рѣчь, произнесенная в ...

I have tried most of the suggestions mentioned here at some point. The best workflow I have developed for this starts from first converting the MS Word document to an ODT file using Libre Office on the command line: loffice --headless --convert-to odt msword.doc loffice.odt After that, Writer2LaTeX does a pretty good job of converting the basic structure ...

The package dvips contains all font and PostScript specific stuff and not the program itself (which is in a package like dvips.<binary type>): texmf-dist/doc/dvips/dvips.html texmf-dist/doc/dvips/dvips.pdf texmf-dist/doc/info/dvips.info texmf-dist/doc/man/man1/afm2tfm.1 texmf-dist/doc/man/man1/afm2tfm.man1.pdf texmf-dist/doc/man/man1/dvips.1 ...

I moved manually the contents of the .zip file, but it should be equivalent to unzip in /usr/local/texlive/texmf-local Here's the structure I have (the first line is how I output it): > locate mtpro2 | grep texmf-local | grep 'mtpro2$' /usr/local/texlive/texmf-local/doc/fonts/mtpro2 /usr/local/texlive/texmf-local/dvips/mtpro2 ...

Your TeX Live installation is faulty or incomplete. It misses the Latin Modern fonts in OpenType format which are necessary for fontspec to work, because they are the “fallback fonts”. If you have the “vanilla” TeX Live, use tlmgr to install/reinstall collection-fontsrecommended (or just the lm package). For a TeX Live/Debian, use apt-get to install all ...

The latest version of TeX Live (currently 2013) can be installed in Ubuntu with install-tl-ubuntu. The main advantage of this is that you get tlmgr and can update accordingly and apt is notified of the install so it will not try to install TeX Live packages that are already installed. Download installl-tl-ubuntu and run it as sudo ./install-tl-ubuntu No ...

TeXLive is now usable on FreeBSD. There is a texlive-base and texlive-texmf port. If you don't want install from port you can install from packages. So: it's 100% ready-to-use (I'm using almost one year without any problem).

The best solution here by far is to install vanilla TeX Live as explained in answers on this site and in the official instructions. There is some confusion, I think. In general, there is a difference between what is needed to build a binary and what is needed to use it. The quotation from biber's documentation is saying that perl is not needed to use ...

According to the CTAN Edition catalogue, the package ships with MiKTeX, but not with TeX Live. You can download the .zip file, extract the .sty file (if required) and move it to your personal TDS tree. By the way, the xwatermark, from the same author, is superior to draftmark and ships with TeX Live. Some other packages offering functionality to add ...

Kjell Magne fixed that on April 16, 2014. I tested sudo pip install dot2tex on Windows (CygWin) and Ubuntu, it is working well. I enclose the original email. Pavel, Thanks for pointing this out. I have updated the pypi project with source files: https://pypi.python.org/pypi/dot2tex/2.8.7 I have not worked on dot2tex for a very long time, but recently I ...

I wrote a script that automates Silex's answer and does (optionally) a lot more. It supports Ubuntu versions 12.04 up to 14.04. Download install-tl-ubuntu and run it as sudo ./install-tl-ubuntu To download that script, run wget https://github.com/scottkosty/install-tl-ubuntu/raw/master/install-tl-ubuntu && chmod +x ./install-tl-ubuntu Below I ...

After some search (and irc releated help) I have found a solution. the fmtutils command create .fmt file for each tex releated compiler. This utility load a file that contain command needed to build properly .fmt file. Theses commands call explicitely pdftex,xetex,luatex,... When specifing the correct path for fmtutils, the embeded version of fmtutils is ...

I was able to fix this by rearranging the PATH command in .bashrc. The problem manifested itself when the path was set like this: export PATH=$PATH:/usr/local/texlive/2013/bin/x86_64-linux However, changing to this: export PATH=/usr/local/texlive/2013/bin/x86_64-linux:$PATH fixed the problem. I do not have TeXLive installed under the Ubuntu Software ...

I tried both web installers as well as .iso file. perl crashed on both of them. Mine is Windows 7 Professional (legal copy updated till date). I had an old .iso of TeX Live 2012. The installation work smoothly. It seems that there is some compatibility issues in TeX Live 2013 with Windows 7 Pro. Hope someone notices it and fixes it in the next version.

So, I've used the following workaround. I downloaded biber-linux_x86_64.tar.gz from http://sourceforge.net/projects/biblatex-biber/files/biblatex-biber/1.8/binaries/Linux/biber-linux_x86_64.tar.gz/download. This unpacks into a single executable called biber. The Biber documentation informs me that they use PAR::Packer to build this executable. Apparently ...
