I have used LaTex for 30 years and I have used texconfig to configure it. But now I have a new computer with Ubuntu 16.04 and textconfig returns "command not found" (even as sudo). I searched for the texconfig executable and I cannot find it either. Seems to be absent. Any idea of how to install it? I have texlive installed, already the newest version (2015.20160320-1ubuntu0.1).
If you want to set the default paper size in Debian (I suppose that the same works for Ubuntu as well), you should configure the
sudo dpkg-reconfigure libpaper1
and then choose the preferred paper size in the appeared dialog. This will set paper size for the supplied TeXLive distribution.
To rehash the
texmf tree, just run
(though it's rarely necessary to do that by hands if you don't install custom packages system-wide).
