So, after installing TeX Live 2015 (via the downloadable package) next to Homebrew, my directory-structure looks like this
drwxr-xr-x 24 ec admin 816 20 Jan 20:58 | /usr/local drwxr-xr-x 176 ec admin 5984 20 Jan 21:46 + /usr/local/Cellar ... drwxr-xr-x 55 ec admin 1870 20 Jan 21:50 + /usr/local/share drwxr-xr-x 5 root wheel 170 20 Jan 21:32 + /usr/local/texlive drwxr-xr-x 7 ec admin 238 13 Oct 19:52 + /usr/local/var
(Something look a little out-of-place?
> tlmgr install latex latex-bin latexconfig latex-fonts You don't have permission to change the installation in any way, specifically, the directory /usr/local/texlive/2015/tlpkg/ is not writable. Please run this program as administrator, or contact your local admin. tlmgr: An error has occurred. See above messages. Exiting.
So, I'd really rather not run commands as root, thanks.
Was there a correct way to install TeX Live that doesn't require subsequent
sudo to run commands?
/= And in either case, is it safe to recursively-
chown the entire
/usr/local/texlive tree, to repair this?
