I know a similar question has been asked many times, but I cannot seem to port those answers to my situation.
I have recently installed TeXLive on my Ubuntu 14.04 system. I did this using the install-tl.zip file from texlive.org.
When I try to compile just the basic TeXLive default article, it crashes on every package, giving me (just to pick the first one):
! LaTeX Error: File 'booktabs.sty' not found.
But I know booktabs.sty is on my system:
I have the following lines at the end of my .bashrc:
PATH=/usr/local/texlive/2016/bin/x86_64-linux:$PATH export PATH MANPATH=$MANPATH:/usr/local/texlive/2016/texmf-dist/doc/man export MANPATH INFOPATH=$INFOPATH:/usr/local/texlive/2016/texmf-dist/doc/info export INFOPATH
None of those lines point to the location of any of my .sty files, and I'm not sure what variable should.
Thank you for your help.
