Now it wont reinstall, error reads install-tl-ubuntu: checking for TeX Live environment variables... install-tl-ubuntu: running apt and dpkg commands... install-tl-ubuntu: download...

Re: Completely confused about ubuntu installs

Well I've run sudo apt-get remove texlive sudo apt-get remove texworks sudo apt-get autoremove and that seems to have cleared out most of the old files. I've now extracted the script from https://github.com/scottkosty/install-tl-ubuntu and am running sudo ./install-tl-ubuntu Hopefully this works, es...

Re: Completely confused about ubuntu installs

Hey thanks for the response.

You think I should sudo rm /usr/local/tex* and /usr/share/tex* and just try again with the installation method you posted?

Re: Typesetting "pH"

Thanks localghost. Turns out I already had siunitx installed - quite new to all this! But, it doesn't seem to recognise "pH" as a unit and I couldn't find any information about it in the instructions [just to check i tried "\si{\meter}" and that works]. I guess I should just leav...

Typesetting "pH"

Sorry for asking a mundane question, but it's quite difficult to search for a two letter term.

Should I typeset "pH" in mathmode, or is it ok to use textmode? Technically it's a mathmatical function but I'm not sure...!

Thanks
