Package Manager seemingly missing

Postby texgiulio » Sun Aug 11, 2013 10:09 pm

Hi all,

I got my first problem with the TeX Live package manager since years.

I downloaded the *.iso file and I installed Tex Live 2013 in Linux Mint 15 (Olivia), smoothly. Then I would be liked to update all the packages but "tlmgr" seems not working. I report what I got.
  1. No command 'tlmgr' found, did you mean:
  2. Command 'vlmgr' from package 'qdbm-util' (universe)
  3. Command 'rlmgr' from package 'qdbm-util' (universe)
  4. tlmgr: command not found

And if I run "perl tlmgr", I got:
  1. Can't locate TeXLive/ in @INC (@INC contains: /../../texmf-dist/scripts/texlive /../../tlpkg /etc/perl /usr/local/lib/perl/5.14.2 /usr/local/share/perl/5.14.2 /usr/lib/perl5 /usr/share/perl5 /usr/lib/perl/5.14 /usr/share/perl/5.14 /usr/local/lib/site_perl .) at tlmgr line 82.
  2. BEGIN failed--compilation aborted at tlmgr line 82.

Can someone help me?

Thanks in advance for the replies.

You need to add tlmgr to your PATH variable. There was a similar question on once, but this should be applicable in your case. You can also read about this in the Quick install guide (Post-install: setting PATH).

Best regards
The smart way: Calm down and take a deep breath, read posts and provided links attentively, try to understand and ask if necessary.
