## Looking for Ubuntu equivalent packages for texlive-latex-base andtexlive-pictures

Hello,

I am trying to install a program from https://github.com/mph-/lcapy
and it requires the two packages listed if it was an Ubuntu installation:

texlive-latex-base and texlive-pictures

I have a shiny new openSUSE 42.3 installation and in the past I always
managed to bring in way to many texlive language packages then I need or
could ever hope to use when trying to find what I need to meet this
requirement.

Does anyone have any suggestions. My googling has come up empty.

Thank you,

Eric

I do belive the packages you are looking for are
texlive-latex
https://software.opensuse.org/package/texlive-latex
and texlive-collection-pictures
https://software.opensuse.org/packag...ction-pictures
to install them just do
Code:
zypper in texlive-latex texlive-collection-pictures
just keep in mind texlive-latex has a lot of dependencies and will install a lot of packages

Thank you for your help. I did as you said but still ended up with a
problem with circuitikz.

My error is RuntimeError: circuitikz is not installed when using lcapy
and even if I try to create a simple latex document as shown below:

\documentclass{article}

\usepackage{tikz}
\usepackage{circuitiks}

\begin{document}
\begin{center}
\begin{cicruitikz}
\draw (0,0)
to[V,v=$U_q$] (0,2)
to[short] (2,2)
to[R=$R_1$] (2,0)
to[short] (0,0)
\end{circuitikz}
\caption{My first circuit.}
\end{center}
\end{figure}

\end{document}

I get the following error with pdflatex:

! LaTeX Error: File circuitiks.sty' not found.

kpsewhich circuitikz.sty returns:

/usr/share/texmf/tex/latex/circuitikz/circuitikz.sty

I know circuitikz is intalled as I double checked with YAST.

I am at a loss but at least I did not bring in all the tex language
files I usually end up with. "-)

Thanks for your help but I will have to put this problem on the side and
use a debian type installation until I can get it sorted out.

Regards,

Eric

circuitikz is in a separate package not installed by default
https://software.opensuse.org/packag...ive-circuitikz
to install it just do
Code:
zypper in texlive-circuitikz`
if you get another similar issue try searching yast for the missing dependency

'texlive-circuitikz' is already installed.
No update candidate for
'texlive-circuitikz-2016.122.0.0.6svn41299-23.5.noarch'. The highest
available version is already installed.
Resolving package dependencies...

Nothing to do.

Thank you for looking into this. I did get circuitikz finally working
in a latex test document so I know circuitikz is working. I had
previous had a typo.

I still get the same error about circuitikz when I run the lcapy program
which is a python program. I have not been able to figure out how the
code is determining the status of circuitikz but Ubuntu and Debian
install their tex sty files under

/usr/share/texlive/texmf-dist/tex/latex

while openSUSE puts theirs under:

/usr/share/texmf/tex/latex

I may be missing an environment setting or something.

Again, thank you for looking into this.

Regards,

Eric

Note that Leap 42.3 pulls a very dated version of circuitikz, which is 0.6.
I ran into problems because of this so I installed texlive from their TUG.

there is a newer version 2017.136.0.0.8 for TW in the Publishing:TeXLive repo but it seams it's been blocked for LEAP
https://build.opensuse.org/package/s...exlive-specs-e
you should open a bug report about this as Publishing:TeXLive for LEAP is still at 2016.122.0.0.6
https://bugzilla.opensuse.org/

I found out what the cause of the circuitikz error was with the help of
the lcapy program creator.

I was missing the application texlive-standalone which was causing lcapy
to error.

Now I can use the program on openSUSE.

Thank you for all your help.

Eric
