I have approximatively the same problem. I use a recent version of MikTeX and when I compile with XeLaTeX I obtain the same error message as fdiog. I have created an updated eledmac.sty from the latest version of the package. It did not solve the problem for me. Neither when I added \usepackage{etex}.

If you create some symbolic links you can avoid the need to update the configuration file when you install a new edition of TeX Live. As the user who manages your TeX installation (probably this means root or sudo): cd /usr/local/texlive ln -s 2015 current.2015 ln -s current.2015 current The configuration file 09-texlive-fonts.conf should be created in ...

Here is how I solved it. Basics: Ubuntu Linux. Manually installed TeX Live 2015 (from http://tug.org/texlive). TeX Live already come with the needed configuration file. It is found in <path to TL15>/texmf-var/fonts/conf/texlive-fontconfig.conf Copy this to /etc/fonts/conf.d/09-texlive-fonts.conf: sudo cp <path to ...

In general, you can use kpsewhich to locate the specific file TeX is going to load. For your specific question, kpsewhich FontAwesome.otf will tell you which copy of the font you need to modify.

Simplest way is to use TexLive Utility if you are using MacOSX. Get it from here: http://amaxwell.github.io/tlutility/ This utility provides an interactive GUI where you can search for any package, see if it is already installed or not. In case not installed, you can install simply by right-clicking the package name and click install. I hope this helps.

I don't think there really is a single answer to this question, but rather than have multiple answers that just say "I do this", I'll try to lay out some of the criteria that you might use to decide. Furthermore, there is an important distinction between updating the binaries of the distribution vs. updating the packages within it. For TeX Live especially, ...

What causes the problems? The essential problem here is that updmap is executed in some way, shape or form. getnonfreefonts causes problems because it executes updmap. Other font installation scripts cause this problem because they execute updmap. (Of course, not all scripts do this. But our concern here is with those which do.) Finally, of course, ...

After a chat session, we seem to have a grip with what is going on. The intra file seems corrupt. This can happen sometimes. Best method to fix is is to go to http://ctan.org/tex-archive/systems/texlive/tlnet and download (this is for Linux and Mac, there is also an .exe file for Windows) and then run it. sh up­date-tlmgr-lat­est.sh then everything ...

The problem here is most likely because the getnonfreefonts are already available in the shared texmf-local/ folder in /usr/local/texlive/texmf-local. However the corresponding Map files are not enabled and thiws LaTeX does not know where the fonts are. Thus these .map files have to be enabled. Ulrike Fischer mentioned that since these fonts are not related ...

If I compile with TeX Live 2014, adding \showthe\linewidth, I get 418.25555pt With TeX Live 2015, instead, I get 8191.99998pt This is apparently due to a change in KOMA-Script classes. On the other hand, it doesn't make much sense to set the length to 0.75\linewidth in the preamble, because \linewidth is a length that varies in the document. You ...

The solution that I found was to also install the cbfonts and cbfonts-fd packages, as indicated here greek encodings under lyx, besides the two packages indicated by egreg. It might have sufficed to install only the cbfonts package but to be sure I also installed cbfonts-fd package. Note: I am running Fedora so for other distributions and/or OSs, the ...

It seems like you just typed the export PATH=... into the console. Write this into your ~/.profile and check after you opened a new console.

Sorry for my english is no so good, i have mac too, wen i need installed someone package that is not in CTAN , for example flexbib, i must go in the /usr/local, here texlive, 2015 , texmfdist, and this such the folder wen you must place the package. Other option is place the file directly in the folder wen you save your tex work.

To to a large extent, once you have downloaded MacTeX itself you will not need to install any packages except to keep your distribution up-to-date, and for this you use TeX Live Utility. What TeX Live Utility is for TeX Live Utility is not a general purpose package installer, but a tool to manage an existing TeX Live distribution (in your case, MacTeX). ...

The problem turned out to be very simple - the error is generated when the computer gets locked after being idle for some time during the long installation. Staying on the computer solved it.

I've been facing the same problem since TeX Live 2015 was released last month (I have Windows 7 Pro 64-bit OS). I've tried installing it every week (in the hopes that there is a bug, which will be fixed in the weekly updates) but no luck. I tried installing it from different mirrors but again no luck. Finally, I was able to figure out a workaround yesterday. ...

As requested by the maintainer of the TLU in a comment to my OP, I've submitted a new bug report about my issue. It's solved now, and it wasn't a direct bug... Lessons learned: Check every line of the TLU log (access it via menu, "Window -> Log Window"). In my case it gave a hint about TLU including in its \$PATH the /usr/local/texlive/2014/ directory. ...

If you update etex.sty to version 2.3 (which will be reaching ctan mirrors in the next day or so) then the original document runs without error, but with a warning explaining the original problem. I have added a check for this case to the package. Package etex Warning: Extended allocation already in use. (etex) etex.sty code will not be used. ...

\babeltagsis a rather new command in babel. Make sure that your system is up-to-date.

If the file release-texlive.txt in your TeX Live 2015 folder , e.g. C:\texlive\2015\release-texlive.txt, is missing, use this file: ftp://tug.org/texlive/Contents/live/release-texlive.txt At the time of my writing, the content of this file is: TeX Live (http://tug.org/texlive) version 2015 This file is public domain. It is read by install-tl --version, ...

Your TeX Live Manager is set up to point to TLContrib for 2013. For general TeX Live updates you'd be better with the CTAN network (as most updates go there). The best plan is to use the automatic mirror system, so set tlmgr option repository http://mirror.ctan.org/systems/texlive/tlnet as the Admin/root user if appropriate. You can then update as normal ...

It seems like a bug in Texlive 2015 on windows for number of the active console code page cp720. You can change this code with command prompt by inserting chcp nnn, where nnn specifies the code page ( example : chcp 850), you can find a list of cp here. but you must repeat the same steps each time you want to open tlmgr. You can automate the previous ...

I was about to delete this but then thought it might be better to answer it. If you are experiencing the same problem and you use Arch Linux, read this thread. Read to the bottom: you do not need to remove every AUR package and its configuration files and rebuild them all in order to resolve the issue. That is enough to get tlmgr to work again on my ...
