The lastest Ubuntu repository TeXLive is outdated. But it's already installed. According to its documentation it can updated via TeXLive Manager.
If I run
sudo /usr/bin/tlmgr --gui with perl-tk installed I get an error:
"This may take some time, please be patient ... cannot setup TLPDB in /home/dmnq/texmf at /usr/bin/tlmgr line 5336. Compilation failed in require at /usr/bin/tlmgr line 4445."
I have the ubuntu repository texlive 2013. What am I doing wrong?
BTW: I normally prefer using the TUG iso or the repository to install. This I found useful https://milindpadalkar.wordpress.com/2011/05/04/installing-texlive-2010-in-ubuntu-10-04-10-10-and-11-04/ but not sure if it's still valid.
