I'm following this solution to mix Latin and Cyrillic characters (if there is a faster way, please, let me know).

I got the errors

Package fontenc Error: Encoding file t2aenc.def not found \ProcessOptions* Encoding scheme T2A unknown. \fontencoding\encodingdefault

But since I installed my TeXlive using the iso (and not by terminal apt-get) I'm not able to install texlive-language-cyrillic via terminal because it'll install a lot of common base files.

Well, I got from here the cyrillic package bundle.

On readme we find

So you should first process cyrlatex.ins:

  latex cyrlatex.ins

OK, I did it. But how to do the next step following the rules, that is, how to find the right paths to cut/paste those file:

The files with extensions .def, .fd, .sty and .tex should then be moved to a directory on LaTeX's standard input path.

Edited: I'm using

  • cyrillic is included in TeX Live. Did you choose not to install parts of it? If so, you can install it using tlmgr. If not, something is wrong with your installation. – cfr Dec 18 '13 at 1:48
  • If I'm not wrong, I'd installed a full version. tlmgr does not work here. – Sigur Dec 18 '13 at 1:53

    A full version includes cyrillic and a working tlmgr. (Actually, a minimal install includes a working tlmgr.) So if you really installed TeX Live successfully from upstream, then you should be able to use tlmgr, and if you already installed a full version, you should already have cyrillic. Which iso did you use? Where did you get it? Maybe you didn't install TeX Live? – cfr Dec 18 '13 at 2:04

    You shouldn't need texhash for your personal tree. So long as you have the fonts available (installed for TeX) already, just moving the files should be sufficient in this case. That's true for all the files in the list you quoted in your post. – cfr Dec 18 '13 at 2:32

    That's a complaint that it can't find the font. Did the cyrillic package include fonts? If so, you have to make sure they are in the right directories in your personal tree and then run updmap to install them. However, none of this should really be necessary if you really have a full installation of TeX Live 2011. At least, my copy of TL 2011 includes cyrillic. – cfr Dec 21 '13 at 14:50
