I've read all answers on "How to install "vanilla" Tex Live on Debian or Ubuntu?" and used scottkosty's script to do so. I'm getting an error at the end of installation process:
install-tl-ubuntu: install-tl finished successfully. install-tl-ubuntu: linking... ln: failed to create symbolic link ‘/opt/texbin/i386-linux’: File exists install-tl-ubuntu: ERROR: could not link.
Same thing happened when I tried manual install: when getting to change the PATH variable and typing
which tex the command line gave
/usr/bin/tex instead of
/opt/texbin/tex, which for me indicated that the symbolic link was not properly created. But, as I have pretty close to zero experience on Ubuntu command line (or command line for that matter) and just started using -falling in love with- TeX to typeset my documents though I'd ask here. What's going wrong? If so needed, what more info can I give to specify, at best, my issue?
Don't know if it matters or not, but before trying to install vanilla I had TexLive installed via
apt-get texlive. Then, following a chronological order: I removed TexLive following This, tried to install vanilla using Silek's method (didn't work, as said before), removed again, finally got to the script by scott assuming I was doing something wrong, got to the same problem, where I'm still stuck.
