I'm new using latex and I'm a bit lost about how to properly configure my environments so my compiler is able to find my files.
From what I read, I'm supposed to have a
TEXMFHOME environment variables, with default values, but I don't have them in my env so far. And putting files in
~/texmf ends up with a not found error.
From what I understand I am not supposed to set this variables myself unless I want to customize them, so what did I missed ?
If I use the command
kpsewhich the vars seem ok, but still I don't see them in
env, and neither my build it seems.
My command is :
latexmk -pdf -pdflatex="xelatex" -use-make file.tex
I am on Arch with all the
texlive-* packages installed out of the box.
To be more specific, I'd like to have my shared .cls, .sty, .fontspec, whatever, which I am supposed to put by default in
$TEXMFHOME, available when I build my pdf. But it seems out of the box this folder is not read, I get a not found error for my files there.
I can obviously export those vars (and it actually works when I do that), but it seems wrong to have to export default values to make it works as expected.
