I want to install full latex on my AWS environment which uses Amazon machine image. They provide only texlive-2012 which not upto date. With tlmgr and texliveonfly I can install the missing packages on the fly.

Can anyone tell me how to install tlmgr and texliveonfly on amazon machine image, which is similar to CentOs.


You should be able to use the official installation script install-tl provided by TeX Live. Uninstall the previously installed (outdated) version and then install the most recent version. You can use tlmgr to install missing packages like texliveonfly if you like.

You can have a look at

for example to see how others used install-tl to install the most recent version of TeX Live.
