I use cygwin on Windows 7. I use cygwin as I am not allowed to install something else and cygwin is used in my work. I found out that TeX live is there, in cygwin. I managed to set cygwin up for babel-swedish in the language.dat file, and it worked fine.

Last week I did a version update, of the cygwin installation. Now, Swedish isn't working anymore. pdflatex cannot find the same language.dat file as before. I tried to edit language-local.dat file in the texmf-dist/tex/generic/config/, but in vain! It seems not to find any of these files anymore.

Where do I now add Swedish for Babel? 'tlmgr info babel-swedish' tells me it is there but not installed.

  • Sorry, but this description lacks all details. OS of Laptop? Why cygwin (you can install texlive on most operating systems, on Windows e.g. without cygwin)) What did you update? Can you post a minimal working example and post the error message as well? – Keks Dose Feb 19 at 11:53
