Installing a font

Postby bertibott » Sun Feb 17, 2019 1:36 pm

Okay... progress!
I installed xzdec.
After that I ran

sudo tlmgr init-usertree


and got:
Code: [Select all] [Expand/Collapse] [Download] ({untitled.tex})
  1. (running on Debian, switching to user mode!)
  2. tlmgr: user mode database already set up in
  3. tlmgr: /home/bertibott/texmf/tlpkg/texlive.tlpdb
  4. tlmgr: not overwriting it.


After that I ran

sudo tlmgr install aurical

And got this:

Code: [Select all] [Expand/Collapse] [Download] ({untitled.tex})
  1. (running on Debian, switching to user mode!)
  2. tlmgr: Remote repository is newer than local (2017 < 2018)
  3. Cross release updates are only supported with
  4. update-tlmgr-latest(.sh/.exe) --update
  5. Please see <!-- m --><a class="postlink" href="https://tug.org/texlive/upgrade.html">https://tug.org/texlive/upgrade.html</a><!-- m --> for details.



So... I understand that something is outdated... Is it the version of tlmgr? Or the repository holding the aurical package?
And how do I update it?

It seems that you don't use TeX Live 2018 but the 2017 version. Online updates/installations are only possible with the current version, that's 2018. Verify that it's 2018 or install 2018. Perhaps it could work anyway if you run

sh update-tlmgr-latest.sh -- --upgrade

at the directory where that .sh script is, probably in /usr/local/texlive/2017. Or

sh /usr/local/texlive/2017/update-tlmgr-latest.sh -- --upgrade

or

sh /usr/local/texlive/2018/update-tlmgr-latest.sh -- --upgrade

this all confuses me greatly...
I can't really seem to get anywhere... how do I figure out what latex versions are installed? and which one is being used?

Or how do I get rid of all of them so I can make a clean start? I realize this is more of a linux question and less a latex specific one...

On my computer, the texlive directory is at
Code: [Select all] [Expand/Collapse] [Download] ({untitled.tex})
  1. /usr/share/texlive

but no 2017 directory here...

The command find / -type d -name 'texlive' answers :
Code: [Select all] [Expand/Collapse] [Download] ({untitled.tex})
  1. /usr/share/bug/texlive
  2. /usr/share/doc/texlive
  3. /usr/share/doc/texlive-doc/texlive
  4. /usr/share/texlive
  5. /usr/share/texlive/texmf-dist/scripts/texlive
  6. /var/lib/tex-common/fontmap-cfg/texlive
  7. /var/lib/tex-common/hyphen-cnf/texlive
  8. /var/lib/tex-common/fmtutil-cnf/texlive


Where should we run update-tlmgr-latest.sh ? Even downloaded from the Internet (link update-tlmgr-latest.sh in this page), it answers :
Code: [Select all] [Expand/Collapse] [Download] ({untitled.tex})
  1. Verifying archive integrity... All good.
  2. Uncompressing TeX Live Manager Updater 100%
  3. ./runme.sh: Cannot find TeX Live root using kpsewhich --var-value=SELFAUTOPARENT.
  4. ./runme.sh: (no tlpkg/texlive.tlpdb and/or tlpkg/tlpobj/.)
  5. ./runme.sh: Please set your PATH as needed, otherwise it's hopeless.


and kpsewhich --var-value=SELFAUTOPARENT answers the root :
Code: [Select all] [Expand/Collapse] [Download] ({untitled.tex})
  1. /
