What causes the problems? The essential problem here is that updmap is executed in some way, shape or form. getnonfreefonts causes problems because it executes updmap. Other font installation scripts cause this problem because they execute updmap. (Of course, not all scripts do this. But our concern here is with those which do.) Finally, of course, ...

I don't think there really is a single answer to this question, but rather than have multiple answers that just say "I do this", I'll try to lay out some of the criteria that you might use to decide. Furthermore, there is an important distinction between updating the binaries of the distribution vs. updating the packages within it. For TeX Live especially, ...

If you update etex.sty to version 2.3 (which will be reaching ctan mirrors in the next day or so) then the original document runs without error, but with a warning explaining the original problem. I have added a check for this case to the package. Package etex Warning: Extended allocation already in use. (etex) etex.sty code will not be used. ...

To to a large extent, once you have downloaded MacTeX itself you will not need to install any packages except to keep your distribution up-to-date, and for this you use TeX Live Utility. What TeX Live Utility is for TeX Live Utility is not a general purpose package installer, but a tool to manage an existing TeX Live distribution (in your case, MacTeX). ...

Here is how I solved it. Basics: Ubuntu Linux. Manually installed TeX Live 2015 (from http://tug.org/texlive). TeX Live already come with the needed configuration file. It is found in <path to TL15>/texmf-var/fonts/conf/texlive-fontconfig.conf Copy this to /etc/fonts/conf.d/09-texlive-fonts.conf: sudo cp <path to ...

Well it works with TL15, but breaks in TL14 (which has a slightly older listings). But imho you are really stressing listings. You are using it inside the argument of \colorbox, inside a tabular, and on top of this you are using braces for the listings argument - something that works but is rather fragile. ...

After a chat session, we seem to have a grip with what is going on. The intra file seems corrupt. This can happen sometimes. Best method to fix is is to go to http://ctan.org/tex-archive/systems/texlive/tlnet and download (this is for Linux and Mac, there is also an .exe file for Windows) and then run it. sh up­date-tlmgr-lat­est.sh then everything ...

If I compile with TeX Live 2014, adding \showthe\linewidth, I get 418.25555pt With TeX Live 2015, instead, I get 8191.99998pt This is apparently due to a change in KOMA-Script classes. On the other hand, it doesn't make much sense to set the length to 0.75\linewidth in the preamble, because \linewidth is a length that varies in the document. You ...

The problem here is most likely because the getnonfreefonts are already available in the shared texmf-local/ folder in /usr/local/texlive/texmf-local. However the corresponding Map files are not enabled and thiws LaTeX does not know where the fonts are. Thus these .map files have to be enabled. Ulrike Fischer mentioned that since these fonts are not related ...

In general, you can use kpsewhich to locate the specific file TeX is going to load. For your specific question, kpsewhich FontAwesome.otf will tell you which copy of the font you need to modify.

It seems like you just typed the export PATH=... into the console. Write this into your ~/.profile and check after you opened a new console.

The solution that I found was to also install the cbfonts and cbfonts-fd packages, as indicated here greek encodings under lyx, besides the two packages indicated by egreg. It might have sufficed to install only the cbfonts package but to be sure I also installed cbfonts-fd package. Note: I am running Fedora so for other distributions and/or OSs, the ...

Your TeX Live Manager is set up to point to TLContrib for 2013. For general TeX Live updates you'd be better with the CTAN network (as most updates go there). The best plan is to use the automatic mirror system, so set tlmgr option repository http://mirror.ctan.org/systems/texlive/tlnet as the Admin/root user if appropriate. You can then update as normal ...

If the file release-texlive.txt in your TeX Live 2015 folder , e.g. C:\texlive\2015\release-texlive.txt, is missing, use this file: ftp://tug.org/texlive/Contents/live/release-texlive.txt At the time of my writing, the content of this file is: TeX Live (http://tug.org/texlive) version 2015 This file is public domain. It is read by install-tl --version, ...

\babeltagsis a rather new command in babel. Make sure that your system is up-to-date.
