I had previously worked with the texlive distribution provided in the Debian repository, but I came across many inconveniences as a result of it being outdated (no tlmgr; forced to manually update and install packages, etc.) So I decided to remove the package and reinstall texlive using the installer provided by the CTAN website.
After waiting several hours for it install all the packages,
latex does not seem to recognize any of the new packages that should have come with the 2011 texlive distribution (e.g.
tlmgr did not show up as a recognized command. So I try
cd /usr/local/texlive/2011/bin/x86_64-linux/ sudo ./tlmgr --self --update all
But the operation fails, with the following output.
tlmgr: package repository http://mirrors.ibiblio.org/pub/mirrors/CTAN/systems/texlive/tlnet Fundamental package texlive.infra not present, uh oh, goodbyeSerious error, texlive.infra not found at ./tlmgr line 4949.
I have not been able to find much useful information online regarding the error message. Do you have any ideas as to how I can fix
tlmgr and get
latex to recognize the newly-installed packages?
Thanks for the help!
