I just installed LaTeX on my system, which is a Linux Mint 16 (Cinnamon) 32-bit installation on a 64-bit Lenovo e420.
I originally had used
apt-get to install the base Ubuntu package along with Texworks. But I soon ran into a problem with
cannot setup TLPDB") that is identified as a bug here.
Based on a relevant stackexchange thread I removed my LaTeX packages, downloaded the most recent manual install from tug.org, and did a manual install.
tlmgr now works. But, even though the installer indicates that there is a Texworks collection, Texworks doesn't seem to get installed. Texworks doesn't appear in the Texlive
.../bin/ location, PATH, etc. If it does get installed, I don't know where it is. Is this expected behavior? Did I do something wrong? (Note: if I install the Texworks package from the repositories, I can use it and compile documents. But I don't know if there are hidden compatibility issues that might crop up).
