My Acer Chromebook C720 is running Ubuntu 14.04. (I installed Ubuntu/ChrUbuntu using the script found at link.)
I wanted to install "vanilla" TeX Live rather than the version in the Ubuntu software repository. And so I followed the instructions found in this answer to the question How to install "vanilla" TeXLive on Debian or Ubuntu?
Unfortunately, I ran into the following error when installing the "fake" package to make Ubuntu think it has installed TeX Live:
$ sudo dpkg -i texlive-local_2014-1_all.deb dpkg: regarding texlive-local_2014-1_all.deb containing texlive-local: texlive-base conflicts with texlive-common texlive-local provides texlive-common and is to be installed. dpkg: error processing archive texlive-local_2014-1_all.deb (--install): conflicting packages - not installing texlive-local Errors were encountered while processing: texlive-local_2014-1_all.deb
How should I proceed?
