You can install a much more minimalistic texlive using profiles. Have a look at this install script I use in my github repo. I have this install just the packages I need to build the PDFs using travis-ci: https://github.com/BPA-CSIRO-Workshops/handout-template/blob/master/developers/texlive_install.sh The profile file is in the same directory.

The loading of Times done by fncychap conflicts with the font used by psfrag, which is Times as well. The Lenny chapter style is one of the ugliest I know; using Times for the chapter number is absurd, in any case, unless Times is the main document font. Just add \ChNumVar{\normalfont\fontsize{60}{62}\selectfont} to your document preamble. ...

There is a problem with the autorun.inf file in TeXLive 2014. The instruction OPEN=install-tl.bat should be OPEN=install-windows-tl.bat. If you extract its content, you only have to double-click install-windows-tl.bat.

I could not install packages using tlmgr (I guess because, as jon pointed out, TL2013 is not maintained anymore). So I ended up using tlmgr uninstall to remove the TexLive "vanilla" installation, remove its path from \$PATH, and reinstall the Ubuntu version from scratch. It is good enough for me for the meantime, although it's true that I ended up installing ...

This is just to have more space for a comment to Norbert. BTW: Shouldn't tex-common be added to that equivs build file provided on the TUG web page (In my case we mount TL via NFS for easier maintenance, so I'd like to not have any of these packages installed in the system). Just to be clear I do not have problems with maxima, my problem was with texmaker ...

The version installed by the command: \$sudo apt-get install --reinstall texlive-base is outdated. I had to download the most up-to-date version from: http://ftp.leg.uct.ac.za/pub/packages/ctan/systems/texlive/tlnet/ It included most of the current packages. To install it you have to remove the old versions of tex-live you may have: sudo rm -rf ...

Well: I use Ubuntu long time ago, I use to install the LTS versions and there I used to install TeXlive full until I found errors in some packages and I noticed my versions installed were older than the versions contained in the CTAN. As I use to proof a lot of packages and I use LaTeX for a wide variety of documents I decided to install TeXLive 2013 (and ...

Install the package ly1. I just had the same problem and this package solved it for me. I'm sure a more knowledgeable user will be able to explain why.

First, lcdf-typetools are included in TeX Live, so no need to recompile them. Second, TeX Live does not provide any library installation of libkpathsea, that means you have to do it yourself, or install libkpathsea-dev from the ubunu repository. But I really suggest using the lcdf-typetools shipped with TL2014.

Ok, so after a couple of emails and finding this thread: How can I tell TeX Live Utility where my TeX distribution is? It seems like the only option that worked was to completely eradicate TeX from the system and do a brand new install of MaxTeX distro, removing all GUI apps, and all distros from the /usr/local/texlive. I couldn't figure out how to tell ...

read below text (form: http://tug.org/pipermail/xetex/2014-June/025331.html) I have confirmed that, in the case of dvipdfmx, \documentclass[dvipdfm]{article} is ok, but \documentclass[dvipdfmx]{article} is ng. Therefore the bug may be in dvipdfmx.def and xetex.def. However, latex --> dvi --> dvipdfmx --> pdf for ...

This is needed for PDF/A compatibility, but also for accessibility. Accessible PDFs are supposed to be able to read out aloud by a screen reader software.

Handling of TEXMFHOME Here are some points how to set up your TEXMFHOME in a way that all the TeX related programs, i.e., those using the kpathsea library, will fine the proper files: TEXMFHOME is normally in ~/texmf, but can be changed to anything else if required don't use ls-R files, don't run texhash or mktexlsr on TEXFMHOME TEXMFHOME has to be in TeX ...

With TeX Live 2012, I get the following values for the font dimension parameters of the Charter main text font (at 11pt): 1: 0.0pt 2: 2.93286pt 3: 1.75551pt 4: 0.7043pt 5: 5.0563pt 6: 10.51207pt 7: 0.7043pt With TeX Live 2014 (and with an updated TeX Live 2013), the parameters have the following values: 1: 0.0pt 2: 2.93286pt 3: 1.47168pt 4: 0.9671pt 5: ...

As mentioned above, the problem is caused by some local files not being updated upon an texlive upgrade. In my case fmtutil --all fixed the problem. (Neither sudo nor the fmtutil-sys version, those files seem to be upgraded by the package, just the stuff in the user dir isnt.)

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. ...
