All three font types are vector font formats, however OpenType/TrueType are rich formats that can support many more features and languages than Type 1 fonts can do, moreover, this change concerns XeTeX which can utilize these features, not any other part of TeX Live. This change was in response to issues like the following question: \setmainfont{Linux ...

The documentation for libgreek says: the libertine-legacy (or earlier) package must be installed on your system for libgreek to work for math mode. That package is available from CTAN: /obsolete/fonts/libertine-legacy

There's no real difference in how restricted and unrestricted shell-escape work as far as calling the operating system is concerned. The unrestricted shell-escape is usually enabled, but it allows running only programs listed in a special variable set in texmf.cnf; currently the list is shell_escape_commands = ...

Sorry to reactivate this old post but there was no correct answer. The message : (running on Debian, switching to user mode!) cannot setup TLPDB in /home/USER/texmf at /usr/bin/tlmgr line 5308. is generated when tlmgr was not initialized. In most cases, launching the following command (as a normal user) solves the problem : $tlmgr init-usertree ... 2 I've propagated this question also to the TeX Live mailing list and it was a bug that's been fixed now (thanks to willing developers), yet in development version only. 8 The unstable debian versions sid and Jessie provide tlmgr (as you may lookup here). You may use it, because it runs in user mode (see the doc or the man page). That means it will write the new/updated packages to your home folder and won't conflict with the package manager. PDFLaTex etc. prefer the packages from your home folder. The tlmgr executable isn't ... 5 In ~/Library/Application Support/TeX Live Utility there is a file called Log Messages.plist. Move that to the trash and try again. 2 with running apt-cache search pygments you'll get the needed packages: voss@ubuntu:~$ apt-cache search pygments python-pygments - syntax highlighting package written in Python python-sphinx - documentation generator for Python projects (implemented in Python 2) python3-pygments - syntax highlighting package written in Python 3 python3-sphinx - documentation ...

Can't you use LuaTeX? Then you are able to integrate the MP-code into the document: \documentclass{article} \usepackage{luamplib} \begin{document} Lorem ipsum lorem ipsum lorem ipsum lorem ipsum lorem ipsum lorem ipsum lorem ipsum lorem ipsum lorem ipsum lorem ipsum lorem ipsum lorem ipsum. % \begin{mplibcode} u:=1cm; beginfig(1); draw ...

I assume you have a <texmf-local>/doc/writer2latex directory, where, say, writer2latex.pdf resides. In this case, the heuristics built in texdoc will open this file when texdoc writer2latex is issued. If you want to call it with another name, create a file <texmf-local>/texdoc/texdoc.cnf where you can add the line alias w2l = ...

For me this was also a problem with the PATH-variable. Go to environmental variables, search for PATH and add at the end: ;C:\Windows\system32. The semicolon is important as it separates the entries. You can test it by typing cmd into the console. If it works (and you had the same problem like me), tlmgr may now update properly. Restart the console after ...

as of now (november 2013), testing of the beta of the latex support for the stix fonts is well along. some work is needed on the fonts themselves, and i'm not sure when it will be ready for final release. however, i'm optimistic that it can happen before tex live 2014 is frozen. the fonts and supporting package will certainly be uploaded to ctan as soon ...

You can find Win32::Console::ANSI at CPAN. I'm not enough of a Perl expert to tell if that would contain all you need, or if it would depend on which Perl installation you're using. If it doesn't work, you'll just have to remove the inclusion of the package in TeXcount. In the latest version of TeXcount, the code to include the package is: # Conditional ...

I got the same error with Pandoc. It was: pandoc: Error producing PDF from TeX source. This is pdfTeX, Version 3.1415926-2.5-1.40.14 (TeX Live 2013/Debian) restricted \write18 enabled. ---! /home/user/.texmf-var/web2c/pdftex/pdflatex.fmt doesn't match pdftex.pool (Fatal format file error; I'm stymied) I fixed it by removing / renaming the ...

You can use LyX without LaTeX. You just won't be able to compile to PDF, which I think your collaborator is OK with.

The Bad Hostname error was caused by the unavailability of the active mirror, which in this case was http://funnyshare.org/mirrors/ctan/systems/texlive/tlnet This was hinted also in the log: You may want to try specifying an explicit or different CTAN mirror; In such cases it's possible to select a different mirror with: sudo tlmgr option repository ...

When I ran bibtex 100DayIntro.aux it was showing an error in my aux file as I was using \bibliographystyle{IEEEtran}, I changed this to \bibliographystyle{plain} and it compiled fine first time.

The official web page of ST2 explains how to install ST2 on linux (you seems to use debian). Linux support is coming along nicely. You need to install TeXlive; if you are on Ubuntu, note that apt-get install texlive will get you a working but incomplete setup. In particular, it will not bring in latexmk, which is essential to LaTeXTools. You need ...

Installing utopia package fixed the problem.

For me (on Ubuntu 13.10 with TeX Live 2013) I solved the problem by re-installing the texlive-base package. # sudo apt-get install --reinstall texlive-base I installed my tex-dist with the normal installer, not the install-tl-ubuntu.
