From the link you shown: ... Y&Y, Inc. closed in 2004 ... Do you really not afraid of the dead? ;-)

That is not a list of fonts included in TeX Live. It is a list of fonts covered by an identification guide but most of the fonts are not and will not be in TeX Live. The reference to TeX Live is just a note concerning the version used to produce the guide. That is, it is saying that because they updated to TeX Live 2011, the guide itself is 30% smaller. ...

By default, in TeX Live bibtex looks for local .bib files in your local texmf/bibtex/bib folder. So you can put your directory containing the bib files there, or make a symbolic link inside that folder to your directory. Either one will work. Then you just use \bibliography{a,b,c} for .bib file a.bib, b.bib etc.

Since you say you want any kind of TeX, I would personally recommend using Kile, as it comes installed with all the packages and is quite easy to use. Furthermore it comes with a lot of tools like wizards for tables or tools to easily create equations and add symbols for beginners. It also has a function to preview your equations. You can find it in the ...

This worked for me: sudo port install texlive-latex-extra followed by, for safe measure sudo texhash

Not an answer, but I'm having the same problem with the xwatermark package and its cousins. The xkeyval package update seems to be involved too.

The basic idea for triangular diagrams is to consider more columns, in this case three; you may want to play with column sep or row sep in order to get better distances, as shown. \documentclass{article} \usepackage{tikz-cd} \begin{document} $\begin{tikzcd} & A \arrow{dr}{g} \\ B \arrow{ur}{f} \arrow{rr}{h} && C \end{tikzcd}$ \[ ...

If you are happy with experimenting a bit, I suggest to proceed as follows. Disclaimer: I don't have a dual boot machine, I kicked Windows off my Laptop years ago. Install texlive under windows and test it. Then boot into Linux and start the installation of texlive. Cancel the installation process after some minutes. Now, you have a TDS compliant ...

The order of the options in the command are significant. Placing --shell escape before the file name solves the issue.

In this answer I assume a standard TeX Live is used, not one packaged by Debian, Fedora or similar distributions. Extra material should be installed either in TEXMFLOCAL or TEXMFHOME. The first location is /usr/local/texlive/texmf-local while TEXMFHOME refers to ~/texmf (~/Library/texmf with MacTeX). Fonts should always be installed in TEXMFLOCAL for ...

Fundamentals The basic idea of this approach relies on calling executables using their full paths. That is, running /usr/local/texlive/2014/bin/x86_64-linux/pdflatex and /usr/local/texlive/2014/bin/x86_64-linux/biber or /usr/local/texlive/2013/bin/x86_64-linux/pdflatex and /usr/local/texlive/2013/bin/x86_64-linux/biber If you don't need to do ...

This answer assumes that you have a 32-bit linux version. You have to add-paste the following lines to your bashrc. ################################################# # # # LaTeX path configuration # # # ...

I have quite a lot testing/development/experimental/local versions of packages that I want to use temporarly with my TeXsystems. I always put such packages in their own texmf tree and than attach this texmf trees to the texsystem(s) when needed. Side remark: biblatex is a special case: When switching the biblatex version you must also use a ...

TeX searches the current/working folder first for files/packages to include before it searches elsewhere (your local/texmf or the root TeX folder). So, the only way to do this "efficiently" is to use your working folder to store the two versions. Place one in a folder called X and another in a folder called Y. Then, with every run of LaTeX, you can execute ...

Note that upstream recommend not installing as root. Installing as root introduces a level of risk and has no benefits whatsoever. Note that I trust the people who are in charge of TeX Live. However, I have been given reason to believe that they are fallible and fallible beings screw up however competent and however well-intentioned they are. Moreover, ...

What I did was to let sudo know about the modification of the $PATH variable. This was done typing the following command on terminal sudo env PATH="$PATH" tlmgr In this way, I somehow enabled sudo in tlmgr. After that packages can be installed using sudo tlmgr install package
