If you have both a GNU/Linux distribution provided TeX Live and a manually installed one, you'll have two different tlmgr. The one in /usr/bin will not update packages, but just change configuration parameters. The one in /usr/local/texlive/<YEAR>/bin/<ARCH>, instead, will do updates to the manually installed TeX Live. Here <YEAR> stands ...

From your question I understand you are trying to install over the internet. Due to automatic mirror selection, this process may not be the most efficient one. Try installing from ISO. The image can be downloaded here.

An alternative route may be to use compat_freebsd - setup for running FreeBSD binaries under emulation and use the FreeBSD XeTeX port.

Your installation was correct. If you try other fonts, you would encounter no problems. You just were unlucky enough to try the Garamond font first. The KPSE* family and the updmap are not the issue here. Apparently, the problem lies with the documentation at the LaTeX font catalog which claims that Garamond is part of TeXLive. Garamond is only partially ...

Your test is not conclusive. Consider the file \nopagenumbers \font\ptm=ptmr8r \ptm a \bye and compile it with tex -recorder, so a .fls file will be created containing information about the loaded files; I only removed the first line that reports the working directory PWD <not shown> INPUT /usr/local/texlive/2014/texmf.cnf INPUT ...

The tfm information is saved in .fmt file when tex -ini is run. The dvi output includes the shifts (numerically specified by internal unit) of current typesetting point. These commands are used at inter-word spaces, inter-letter kerns and at other vertical/horizontal spaces generated by TeX) the commands about typesetting the characters from the slots ...

The tfm file for cmr10 has been read and the relevant data is dumped in the format, and is not read again. You can see all the fonts that were read in your initex run. The tfm for all these are loaded into the format: \font\tenrm=cmr10 \font\preloaded=cmr9 \font\preloaded=cmr8 \font\sevenrm=cmr7 \font\preloaded=cmr6 \font\fiverm=cmr5 \font\teni=cmmi10 ...

Just a heads-up, you definitely need to include the trailing /: \graphicspath{{./figures}} won't work but \graphicspath{{./figures/}} will. In case anyone else is scratching their head about this when they should be writing more dissertation sections...

For the pronounce of "TeX", see question What is the correct pronunciation of TeX and LaTeX?. Pronunciation is /tɛx/ or /tɛk/. "Live" is the plain English word "live" pronounced as an adjective, not as verb, see question The pronunciation of the word “Live”. Pronunciation is /laɪv/ (Oxford Learners Dictionaries).

The tex.fmt is created by \input plain \dump \endinput Thus it is the same as your plain.fmt. In the present implementation of TeX, the banner This is TeX, Version 3.14159265 ... is printed only when the TeX is nearly equal to the original TeX by Knuth. This is discriminated by the program name 'tex'. In the case of tex --fmt=plain ... the program ...

This code compiles fine with MiKTeX: \documentclass{article} \usepackage[utf8]{inputenc} \usepackage[T1]{fontenc} \usepackage{lmodern} \newtheorem{afnSpace}{Definition}[section] \newtheorem{frameDef}[afnSpace]{Definition} %Actually 5th definition \newtheorem{frameDef s1}{Definition}[afnSpace] \begin{document} \setcounter{section}{1} \section{Affine ...

Because I rarely needed to use LaTeX, I used to use EC2 for compiling my documents. I liked that I could throw everything away when I was done, but the setup was time consuming. I found a better way. Docker is a great tool for this because you don't have to make any changes to your main system. Here is a way to use a Docker image I created. docker run -i ...

One way to conserve space is to get rid of everything LaTeX related when you are done compiling your document. Docker is a great way to do this. Here are ways to use a Docker image I created. docker run -i richardbronosky/latex-compiler < document.tex > document.pdf If you need supplementary files yon can in an uncompressed tar and it will be ...

You can always place your custom packages in /home/<username>/texmf/tex/latex. For packages coming with TeX Live, tlmgr (TeX Live manager) takes care of downloading and making the package available. If sudo was needed to install TeX Live, i.e. in a directory where a normal user has no writing rights, sudo will also be needed to run tlmgr. If TeX Live ...

If you haven't installed it, call tlmgr install scheme-full and it will pull in each and everything.

Here you have a complete documentation regarding the tlmgr command line. As far as I have glanced through it, there is only an option to update all packages using the following command: tlmgr update --self --all. As for installing, you only have the option to install one package at a time (with all it's dependencies) using tlmgr install package_to_install. ...

A colleague of mine tried that with TexStudio and it did not work properly. Basic editing and viewing was fine, but compilation didn't do anything, but that was because they migrated from one machine to another. More generally, if you are concerned that installing a piece of software will damage your system then you should not install it, and you should ...

As detailed in https://www.tug.org/texlive/windows.html, TeX Live does very little on installation to affect the running of a Windows system (or indeed any other). The TeX Live tree itself is self-contained, and so you can just copy it in its entirety from another system to say C:\texlive\2014 (for the current release). Almost certainly you'll want to then ...
