Did you finalise the TeXLive installation according to these instructions? If you don't provide a "fake" TeX Debian package, it is likely to break your TeXLive setup. Credits to user "cfr"!

For future Googler, creating a symlink solution like this works for me. I do not know what caused the OP to not being able to do it.

As @Papiro said, you need to download MacTeX.pkg and install it. The alert sheet in TeX Live Utility is telling you to manually upgrade, or at least that's the intent: I guess the button is the misleading part, so maybe that should be changed. TeX Live Utility itself has nothing to do with the upgrade process, where by "upgrade" I mean going from e.g., ...

Since this question has come up a few times on the TeX.SE without answers, I thought I'd just post my experiences (as a beginner to LaTeX and its corresponding compilation). It turns out that my issue 'main.tex not found' was purely coincidental to the problems that I was having. In fact, the reason why my file would not compile was due to the fact that I ...

You should move\layout after \begin{document}.

The reason is probably that since version 10.9, MacOSX has Charter as a .ttc font, and you can't have it on a Windows system. The charterpackage on CTAN only has type 1 version. But you can use the xcharter package, an extension to charter with oldstyle proportional figures, small caps in all shapes/weights and superior figures. It has all the necessary ...

I used patgen for Georgian. Georgian UTF-8 is 3 bytes long. so when patgen asks for Number of chars I use 3*N1, 3*N2 Where N1 and N2 are for one byte chars what patgen expects :) I had no succes with opatgen (unicode patgen)/was unable copile it for windows. This is nice program and library. Unfortunately not updated long time/ another way is to convert ...

Ok, I think I got it. The thing is - what I usually do if I install a new TexLive version, I install the minimal packages, and then try to tex my docs and add packages until they compile - so obviously there was some missing stuff here. Here is a log of what I did to get it properly working (without hacks). As pointed out in comments: the first key thing is ...

First of all, whatever you are going to achieve, it won't work with ‘classical’ TeX. This is due to a design decision of Knuth – today we know that this was unfortunate, but at the time of writing TeX this was far less obvious: Hyphenation patterns are applied to glyph indices and not to input character codes. Since there are more than 256 Khmer ligature ...

Since you wish to use TeX Live rather than system fonts, it is better to look for information about the font packages available to you than to create lists of font files. This is because most packages will include many different files under texmf-dist/fonts and the relation of those files to package names will not always be at all obvious. (The directory ...

Here's a version which just tests for the existence of the encoding file and is therefore independent of the TL version etc. (I assume this should work with e.g. MiKTeX etc. as well. It would also work if you installed a local version of the encoding although I am by no means suggesting that doing so would be wise.) ...

Quick and dirty test -- without lua, running with pdflatex and lualatex (but not needed in this case) ;-) \documentclass{article} \usepackage{xstring} \IfSubStr{\pdftexbanner}{2014}{% \usepackage[T1]{fontenc}% \usepackage[greek,english]{babel} }{% \usepackage[LGRx,T1]{fontenc} } \usepackage{blindtext} \begin{document} \blindtext \end{document}

This works with pdflatex and lualatex. \documentclass{article} \def\gettexliveversion#1(#2 #3 #4#5#6#7#8)#9\relax{#4#5#6#7} \edef\texliveversion{\expandafter\gettexliveversion\pdftexbanner\relax} \ifnum\texliveversion<2013 \usepackage[LGRx,T1]{fontenc} \else \usepackage[T1]{fontenc} \fi \usepackage[greek,english]{babel} Tested on a “vanilla TeX ...

There is no problem to use e.g. the main texmf-dist of TexLive with MikTeX: You can simply attach it as a new root. Its packages will then in most case be found first. But I wouldn't merge the two main texmf trees: There are slight differences (e.g. in the placing of the binaries and the scripts) and managing the same tree with two update managers could get ...

I tried to use the same combination of Texlive (2014) and Texstudio on a flahs drive and ran into the same issues. Providing the direct path worked fine but would probably not on another computer. Using relative links didn't work. At some point I ommited the dots in the beginning of the link (i.e. "/texlive/bin/win32/pdflatex.exe" -synctex=1 ...

Here's the relevant part of dvipdfmx.cfg: 137 %% In TeX Live, we use the rungs wrapper instead of ps2pdf, becuse we 138 %% must omit the -dSAFER which ps2pdf specifies: in order for pstricks 139 %% to work with xetex, 140 %% /usr/local/texlive/*/texmf-dist/dvips/pstricks/pstricks.pro (for 141 %% example) needs to be accessed. (Also, it is better to use our ...

This is a more general UNIX sysadmin question, but you can use visudo to add Defaults secure_path="/usr/local/texlive/2014/bin/x86_64-linux:/usr/local/sbin:/usr/local/bin:/usr/sbin:/usr/bin:/sbin:/bin" Edit that path for your environment! See https://wiki.debian.org/sudo or https://www.google.com/search?&q=sudo+secure_path on the web, and the manual ...

U just need to press Enter key and it goes on, that won't effect your PDF file, and you don't bother to figure it out where's the error. The easiest way for fixing it once for all, is, you download an installer and re-install for a complete installation, then it will be alright.

I finally figured out the solution! Apacite must be invoked in its own right, not passed as an argument to '\documentclass[apacite]{apa6}'. The following minimal example will print the 'annote={}' field, but still no joy with 'anotate={}'. This however is good enough! \documentclass{apa6} \usepackage{apacite} \title{Minimal Example} \shorttitle{Min. ...

my guess is that you have the texlive package installed, but not texlive-full. If this is true, there are two options: install texlive-full with apt-get or your favorite package managers. It will bring you most packages there are, but a few released only recently. if you go for the installation of TeX Live from TUG, install to the default, and then adapt ...
