Thread: Texlive and opensuse

  1. #1

    Default Texlive and opensuse

    Hello

    I wanted to start using Tex/Latex, so I decided to get Texlive, so I downloaded texlive using Yast2, but I saw and read that there is no tlmgr (the app to manage tex packages), so I uninstalled texlive through Yast2 and I downloaded texlive from their website and installed it, but now when I want to install Texmaker through Yast it says that I don't have texlive installed which is not true.

    Is there a way to:
    1) make Yast recognise my installation of texlive?
    or
    2) force install of texmaker and show him the place where texlive is installed?

    As far as YaST/zypper/rpm are concerned, it is true if you did not install
    an rpm.

    No.

    You can force install ignoring dependencies - see "man rpm".


    I would suggest instead that you install the openSUSE packages and ask
    somebody to build tlmgr for you, or make it yourself.

    That's weird.
    I use texlive and texmaker with no problems on my OpenSuse 11.4 (64 bit) with KDE 4.6.5

    My texlive installation (through Yast) comes from repo-oss. I have
    texlive
    texlive-arab
    texlive-bin
    texlive-bin-latex
    texlive-bin-xetex
    texlive-bin-xmltex
    texlive-contex
    texlive-latex
    texlive-xetex
    texlive-xmltex

    and Texmaker from repository Publishing

    Everything works.
    If I can suggest another program, then have a look into Lyx (repo: Publishing)

    good luck
    Linux 4.12.14
    openSUSE Leap 15.0 - 64 bit
    KDE Plasma 5.12.15
    KDE Framework 5.44.0
    Qt - 5.9.4

    I suspect the absence of timgr is because many people use LyX - which I would also recommend - or Kile which is an excellent LaTeX editor, both of which I have been able to use - in the case of LyX for eleven years - without ever needing anything more to manage TeX packages.
