I'm on El Capitan (10.11.5) and Tex Live 2016. I've noticed that Tex Live Utility is not running the scheduled updates (I have set them to weekly), it shows no notification on available updates. It updates fine manually.

Any hints?

  • What is the output of ls -l ~/Library/LaunchAgents/com.googlecode.mactlmgr.update_check.plist ; launchctl list |grep mactlmgr in Terminal? – Adam Maxwell Jun 29 '16 at 0:50

  • Okay, it's loaded and should be executing on schedule. Try /usr/bin/python ~/Library/Application\ Support/TeX\ Live\ Utility/update_check.py – Adam Maxwell Jun 29 '16 at 17:19
  • @AdamMaxwell I get this /usr/bin/python ~/Library/Application\ Support/TeX\ Live\ Utility/update_check.py update_check.py: no tlmgr path set; TeX Live update check will not proceed – fdiog Jul 1 '16 at 16:39
  • Thanks, that's the one El Capitan path change that I missed. Should be fixed in the beta that I just uploaded. github.com/amaxwell/tlutility/releases/download/1.25b2/… – Adam Maxwell Jul 1 '16 at 18:26

This was a bug, and should be fixed in the latest version of TeX Live Utility, (1.26, released today).


I would suggest leaving a note for the author/maintainer on the TeX Live Utility (TLU) mailing list. See <http://www.tug.org/mailman/listinfo/tlu>
