This question already has an answer here:

The first time I installed LaTeX was in /usr/share/texmf-texlive (~600MB).
Yesterday I installed TeX Live from apt-get, I simply don't know where it has been installed (~1GB).
Today I installed Tex Live from tug.org (~4.5GB). It's in /usr/local/texlive/2013. However both Kyle and TeXMaker are still using the first installation.

How can I choose which version to use?

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.


My solution in TexMaker was to go to Options->Configure Texmaker and add the desired path to pdflatex: /usr/local/texlive/2013/bin/x86_64-linux/pdflatex.

However I think it would be better to have the possibility of changing the global path to bin.
