    Default Texlive packages administration, tlmgr don't work.

    Hi, I have the next problem, I want to know how Install and manage packages for Tex live 2011 on Linux; with Windows systems is possible manage packages for Texlive whit the Package Manager program included in the MikTex installation, but I don't now how to install and manage packages for Texlive on Linux, I installed texlive 2011 whit YaST2 Software Mangnament but when I want execute the comand tlmgr I get the following message:
    Code:
    dev@dhcppc1:~> tlmgr
    If 'tlmgr' is not a typo you can use command-not-found to lookup the package that contains it, like this:
        cnf tlmgr

    Then, How I can manage packages if tlmgr is loss or not work? How I can "reinstall" tlmgr?

    My Texlive version is:
    TeX, Version 3.1415926 (TeX Live 2011)

    Did you try what the message says, ie "cnf tlmgr"?

    Yes my friend, but after execute "cnf tlmgr" the console displays:

    Code:
    "tlmgr not found
    I think than my Tex Live Installation don't include the tlmgr program, is incomplete, but, how fix it? How manage packages and styes?

    Thanks

    MikTeX is a subset of the TexLive packages; it includes tlmgr to enable you to manage the packages within Windows. It is not needed on Linux and it is therefore not included in the distribution.

    Since TexLive 2012, TexLive packages have been distributed as individual packages within groups; this means that if you use YaST or zypper to install an individual package, you will get the rest of the group to which it belongs.

    The easiest way to manage your packages is to move to TeXLive 2013 and use YaST which will display all the packages you have installed and all the ones you haven't. You can then decide which ones to delete and YaST will advise you of any dependencies that you will break.

    Put another way YaST removes the need for tlmgr.
