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?

Ok, if you have fixed apt-get come back and send the terminal output for the install trial of maxima.

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 ;-)

are the files in your TEXMFHOME in TDS structure? I.e., tex/latex/... and bibtex/bib/.... ? TEXMFHOME is a normal tree thathas to be in standard layout! PS: remove ls-R, not needed!

comment How can a package be listed on CTAN but not be available in Tex Live?
@Josef it was never part of the pretest - I just tried to get it working in pretest so that it is ready.

comment How to preserve files downloaded by install-tl
@KarlRichter no need for providing the full config file. You can take the default config file, and only do the following 2 changes: (1) change interval (hourly interval not needed, rest to your liking, these are the retain ... lines) (2) change backup locations to an rsync server (these are the backup... lines, here for tlnet one would use backup rsync://your.rsync.ctan.mirror/ctan/systems/texlive/tlnet/ tlnet/ - the second tlnet is the local directory under the backup root as specified in snapshot_root). Hope that helps.

comment Backups for tlpkg during tlmgr update
the nice thing with tlmgr back --clean is that you can decide how many backups you want to keep. OTOH, if you want to keep only backups for one or two packages (crucial ones), then this is better done by hand.

comment Backups for tlpkg during tlmgr update
Deleting manully is no problem, tlmgr does not keep a record, and reads the backup directory if you ask for restores.

comment Updating packages while TeX Live is frozen
Is there any pressing need to update? I think this is the prime question. We are not talking about security fixes etc. If you are living that much on the edge of development to need your daily dose of updates, then tlpretest should also no pose risks to you.
