I am running Cygwin/X X Server Version 1.18.2 and installed the ENTIRE TeX package because I couldn't get latex to run. I've used LaTeX and Cygwin for years…but got a new computer and had to install from scratch. Here's the error I keep getting:
$ latex a This is pdfTeX, Version 3.14159265-2.6-1.40.16 (TeX Live 2015/Cygwin) (preloaded format=latex) restricted \write18 enabled. kpathsea: Running mktexfmt latex.fmt mktexfmt: mktexfmt is using the following fmtutil.cnf files (in precedence order): mktexfmt: /home/hawkise1/.config/texmf/web2c/fmtutil.cnf mktexfmt: /usr/share/texmf-dist/web2c/fmtutil.cnf mktexfmt: mktexfmt is using the following fmtutil.cnf file for writing changes: mktexfmt: /home/hawkise1/.config/texmf/web2c/fmtutil.cnf mktexfmt [INFO]: Disabled formats: 56 I can't find the format file `latex.fmt'!
I have changed all permissions in Cygwin, ensured my path is correct, ensured
TEXMFCNF is not set, ran
…nothing seems to work. Is this a bug?
