I installed TexLive full on Ubuntu 16.04 through terminal and while it said that it was about to install approximately 3GB of software I ended up with 6GB. Is this normal? Why it didn't install what it said that it would?

  • 6G sounds about right for a full install (I seem to have 5.4G in my texlive 2016 cygwin setup) – David Carlisle Nov 8 '16 at 22:00
  • It wasn't referring to download size? – Torbjørn T. Nov 8 '16 at 23:00
  • du -sh /usr/local/texlive/2016 on my x86_64 platform with Ubuntu 16.04 and TeXLive full says 4.9G. – gernot Nov 8 '16 at 23:06
  • @TorbjørnT. I don't know. I am referring to the number the terminal mentions just before you authorize the installation. – Adam Nov 8 '16 at 23:07
  • Those are download sizes. It normally tells you it is going to download X Mb which after installing will require an extra Y Mb on disk. – daleif Nov 9 '16 at 3:06
