OS: Ubuntu 18

If one decides to use install-tl to install only the most minimal scheme , then how can one install the executable latex ? Apparently doing tlmgr install latex is not enough, because when running latex on the terminal, it shows

latex command not found .

So, how can one install latex using only tlmgr ?


On the terminal run apt-cache show texlive-latex-base . The package texlive-latex-base is the one apt-get would install to install latex. From here, you can deduce that the command you need to run to install latex is:

tlmgr install latex latex-bin.
