If you use user mode tlmgr, then it can be installed into an arbitrary texmf tree.

comment Un-official MacTeX repository
setup repos: tug.org/svn/texlive/trunk/Master/tlpkg/doc/… Is it this what you wanted? Anything else?

comment Un-official MacTeX repository
Just one comment: there are other additional repositories: tlcritical to test new tlmgr, tlptexlive for additional Japanese support, and I don't know what else. It is not trivial but doable to set up local repos, and I have documented it.

comment What are the benefits of vanilla texlive over texlive provided by Ubuntu repository?
As the one responsible for tlmgr and the Debian/Ubuntu packages: yes, I agree with what is written, but: (1) if you are writing normal documents (2) are not developing, then the Ubuntu packages might be better, because better integrated. I myself would be content with TL2005 packages - and Zi write a lot of tex code! last: dependency hell comes from not using the Debian/Ubuntu packages.

comment TeXlive on Ubuntu, and equivs?
@daleif Hmm, I guess I now know what the problem is - asymptote! The Debian/Ubuntu package of asymptote depends on texlive-binaries. So there are two solutions: (1) add asymptote to the provides, as the TUG TeX Live ships asymptote, or (2) add texlive-binaries to the provides. Concerning the tex-common, it can be added, but should anyway not get installed. Let me know if that helps!

comment TeXlive on Ubuntu, and equivs?
@daleif that is strange. Can you show me the output of apt-get -f install, and that of apt-get policy maxima and apt-cache show maxima. I checked here and I don't see why maxima should pull in texlive at all.

comment Reconfiguring Tex Live Utility for 2014
Did you by chance install MacTeX 2013, but plain TeX Live 2014? I would assume that this might cause a problem. What ist the output of ls -l /usr/texbin? What is the output of which tex? BTW, shouldn't it be /opt/texbin?

comment TeXlive on Ubuntu, and equivs?
Ok, if you have fixed apt-get come back and send the terminal output for the install trial of maxima.

comment TeXlive on Ubuntu, and equivs?
Can you show me the output of apt-cache show texlive-local (or what the equivs package name is). Do you have Provides: texlive-binaries in the equivs config file?

comment Cannot set local Tex path on ubuntu with “vanilla” TeX Live
No ls-R needed, no texhash needed. But TDS structure is absolutely needed. You can see the search path by typing kpsewhich -show-path .sty, then you should know whereto put. Or look into any shipped TDS tree (texmf-dist) for examples!

comment TexLive 2014 iso file doesn't work to install it
Well, we thought that install-tl-windows.exe is easy enough a name to find. Should we call it click-me-click-me-to-install-texlive-on-windows? Just kidding ;-)
