I just succesfully installed texlive 2012, apart from the fact that tlmgr is missing: it should be in the directory /usr/local/texlive/2012/bin/i386-linux/ but there's not! The only thing with the name tlmgr is a link to a perl script! How could I solve the problem? I'm running Ubuntu, if it can help!

Thank you for the answers!

    That's exactly how it should be. Have you tried calling tlmgr --gui? – Jake Aug 27 '12 at 11:59

    Welcome to tex exchange! There's quite a lot of detail in this answer: how do i update my distribution – cmhughes Aug 27 '12 at 15:17

tlmgr is a perl script.

tlmgr update --all doesn't work, because it needs root access to apply any changes

sudo tlmgr update --all doesn't work, because the path probably isn't part of root's $PATH.

You can run this: sudo /usr/local/texlive/2012/bin/i386-linux/tlmgr update --all

    Or sudo -i followed by tlmgr update --all. – ℝaphink Aug 27 '12 at 12:11
