    Default 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
