This is an update of my earlier question today. That title ("user rights to /usr/share") was unfortunately misleading.
I have a single user system, so I'm a sysadmin by default. Translation: I do not know Linux well enough to do a TeX Live install safely.
I've used TeX Live for several years, but always installed it as
sudo. My OS is Ubuntu 19.04. I'd now like to do the TeX Live install as a regular user, because that's what the TeX Live documentation recommends. Let's call that user
install-tl-unx.tar.gz and extracting the
install-tl script, I start the installation as user, by running:
perl install-tl -gui. I get a permissions error saying that
Bob cannot install to
Here's my question. What is the Linux statement, I need to execute as
sudo to give me the rights needed to complete this installation?
