Installing Kile without old TexLive version?

Postby DavidM » Tue Mar 23, 2010 7:49 pm

Hi everyone,

I have TexLive 2009 installed on my system (Ubuntu), and want to use Kile. If I install Kile with Synaptic Packet Manager, it will automatically install the old version of TexLive, and I don't want that. I know there is a complicated description on the net that incorporates equivs and a lot of steps. Is there an easy way to accomplish what I want? (Using Kile with TexLive 2009)

Thanks!

You could take a look at the personal blog of my fellow moderator [1]. The instructions may also work for TeX Live 2009.

the latest kile from SuSE

http://download.opensuse.org/distributi ... x86_64.rpm
depends not on TeX. You can install it with rpm

Thanks to the both of you! I tried to convert the .rpm to .deb with alien but get this message, can you make sense of it?

I don't know about converting the .rpm to .deb, but I've had success following Stefan/Thorsten's advice about creating a dummy package to trick Synaptic into thinking the TeXlive packages are installed so you can install Kile and other packages that depend on TeXlive.

Indeed, I even wrote a bash script to do it. Save this into a file (e.g., texlivetrick.sh), then:

chmod +x texlivetrick.sh
./textlivetrick.sh

  1. #!/bin/bash
  2. sudo apt-get install equivs
  3. echo "Section: tex" > texlive.ctl
  4. echo "Package: texlive-dummy" >> texlive.ctl
  5. echo "Provides: cm-super, cm-super-minimal, context, latex-beamer, latex-cjk-all, latex-cjk-chinese, latex-cjk-chinese-arphic-bkai00mp, latex-cjk-chinese-arphic-bsmi00lp, latex-cjk-chinese-arphic-gbsn00lp, latex-cjk-chinese-arphic-gkai00mp, latex-cjk-common, latex-cjk-japanese, latex-cjk-japanese-wadalab, latex-cjk-korean, latex-cjk-thai, latex-sanskrit, latex-xcolor, lmodern, luatex, musixtex, pgf, prosper, tex4ht, tex4ht-common, texinfo, texlive-base, texlive-base-bin, texlive-base-bin-doc, texlive-bibtex-extra, texlive-common, texlive-doc-base, texlive-doc-bg, texlive-doc-cs+sk, texlive-doc-de, texlive-doc-el, texlive-doc-en, texlive-doc-es, texlive-doc-fi, texlive-doc-fr, texlive-doc-it, texlive-doc-ja, texlive-doc-ko, texlive-doc-mn, texlive-doc-nl, texlive-doc-pl, texlive-doc-pt, texlive-doc-ru, texlive-doc-th, texlive-doc-tr, texlive-doc-uk, texlive-doc-vi, texlive-doc-zh, texlive-extra-utils, texlive-font-utils, texlive-fonts-extra, texlive-fonts-extra-doc, texlive-fonts-recommended, texlive-fonts-recommended-doc, texlive-formats-extra, texlive-full, texlive-games, texlive-generic-extra, texlive-generic-recommended, texlive-humanities, texlive-humanities-doc, texlive-lang-african, texlive-lang-arab, texlive-lang-armenian, texlive-lang-croatian, texlive-lang-cyrillic, texlive-lang-czechslovak, texlive-lang-danish, texlive-lang-dutch, texlive-lang-finnish, texlive-lang-french, texlive-lang-german, texlive-lang-greek, texlive-lang-hebrew, texlive-lang-hungarian, texlive-lang-indic, texlive-lang-italian, texlive-lang-latin, texlive-lang-manju, texlive-lang-mongolian, texlive-lang-norwegian, texlive-lang-other, texlive-lang-polish, texlive-lang-portuguese, texlive-lang-spanish, texlive-lang-swedish, texlive-lang-tibetan, texlive-lang-ukenglish, texlive-lang-vietnamese, texlive-latex-base, texlive-latex-base-doc, texlive-latex-extra, texlive-latex-extra-doc, texlive-latex-recommended, texlive-latex-recommended-doc, texlive-latex3, texlive-math-extra, texlive-metapost, texlive-metapost-doc, texlive-music, texlive-omega, texlive-pictures, texlive-pictures-doc, texlive-plain-extra, texlive-pstricks, texlive-pstricks-doc, texlive-publishers, texlive-publishers-doc, texlive-science, texlive-science-doc, texlive-xetex, tipa" >> texlive.ctl
  6. echo "Description: texlive dummy package" >> texlive.ctl
  7. equivs-build texlive.ctl
  8. sudo dpkg -i texlive-dummy_1.0_all.deb


(This is a fuller list than TeXblog has, which I got from here.)

(Follow the prompts for your password and to install the equivs package, etc.)

You should then be able to install kile through Synaptic the normal way.
