say to "add the directory of TeX Live binaries to your PATH", but I don't what "my" PATH is supposed to mean. I tried reinstalling the GUIs Texmaker and TeXworks, but at least one of them seems to have come with a version of TeX Live. (I had tried to remove previous versions before installing 2018. I don't know how to install these GUIs without installing the version of TeX that comes with them...)
When I run
the result is
.This is XeTeX, Version 3.14159265-2.6-0.99998 (TeX Live 2017/Debian) (preloaded format=xelatex)
restricted \write18 enabled.
When I type the code from the instructions
the result is the 2018 version, so I suppose that I'm lucky and that the file-path to my install of Tex Live is the default one. But when I shut down the terminal and restart it, it the 2017 version is returned once again, so this path appears not to have been saved permanently. I've been googling what to do for hours, but none of the results makes sense to someone like me who is new to GNU+Linux and has never done this before (and does not understand why the installer can't take care of this).
What I want to achieve is this:
- Have Texmaker and TeXworks use the latest version.
- Remove old versions of TeX Live, at least one of which is apparently installed somewhere: I've no idea where.
- Have "tex -- version" return the 2018 version.
Any help would be appreciated!
