So far, I've followed all steps in this tutorial:

https://www.tug.org/texlive/quickinstall.html

And it seems only the last Post-installation step is not yet done correctly. The tutorial advised me to execute this:

On my system, I should replace i386 with x68_64, if I am not mistaken by this output:Code:PATH=/usr/local/texlive/2014/bin/i386-linux:$PATH

Which would make:Code:margreet@linux-ivul:~/Desktop/margreet/latexdocs> arch x86_64

I have executed this command. Now, I should be able to use the latex command anywhere, to typeset a text file (or not?). I have tried to do this with the following file test.tex located atCode:PATH=/usr/local/texlive/2014/bin/x86_64-linux:$PATHThe file is just a standard tryout latex file, and the content is probably not relevant to my problem. I'll post it anyway.Code:/home/margreet/Desktop/margreet/latexdocs/

This is the result when I try to typeset the file using either latex or pdflatex:Code:\documentclass[a4paper,12pt]{article} \begin{document} The foundations of the rigorous study of \emph{analysis} were laid in the nineteenth century, notably by the mathematicians Cauchy and Weierstrass. Central to the study of this subject are the formal definitions of \emph{limits} and \emph{continuity}. Let $D$ be a subset of $\bf R$ and let $f \colon D \to \mathbf{R}$ be a real-valued function on $D$. The function $f$ is said to be \emph{continuous} on $D$ if, for all $\epsilon > 0$ and for all $x \in D$, there exists some $\delta > 0$ (which may depend on $x$) such that if $y \in D$ satisfies \[ |y - x| < \delta \] then \[ |f(y) - f(x)| < \epsilon. \] One may readily verify that if $f$ and $g$ are continuous functions on $D$ then the functions $f+g$, $f-g$ and $f.g$ are continuous. If in addition $g$ is everywhere non-zero then $f/g$ is continuous. \end{document}

I am however succesful in typesetting the .tex file from the folder where the latex 'application' is stored:Code:linux-ivul:/home/margreet/Desktop/margreet/latexdocs # latex test.tex If 'latex' is not a typo you can use command-not-found to lookup the package that contains it, like this: cnf latex linux-ivul:/home/margreet/Desktop/margreet/latexdocs # pdflatex test.tex If 'pdflatex' is not a typo you can use command-not-found to lookup the package that contains it, like this: cnf pdflatex

The output files go in the same folder as latex and pdflatex are where located. I would however like for the output to appear at the folder where the .tex document is stored. In my ideal world, I could typeCode:linux-ivul:/usr/local/texlive/2014/bin/x86_64-linux # ./latex /home/margreet/Desktop/margreet/latexdocs/test.tex This is pdfTeX, Version 3.14159265-2.6-1.40.15 (TeX Live 2014) (preloaded format=latex) restricted \write18 enabled. entering extended mode (/home/margreet/Desktop/margreet/latexdocs/test.tex LaTeX2e <2014/05/01> Babel <3.9k> and hyphenation patterns for 79 languages loaded.
