I'm on Debian bullseye & would like to include new folders for Latex to search tex & figures files in. I'd like to set this via TEXINPUTS system-wide in texmf.cnf & not by the environment variable.
I added to /etc/texmf/texmf.d/00debian.cnf:
and then ran update-texmf;texhash
I have a source file s.tex which should include the PS figure /home/mydir/mytext/f.ps After the above updates processing the latex source file still gives a "file not found" error.
