Here is my problem:
I have installed Suse 11.0 64bit on my intel desktop and also the technical writing package group. I have tetex, tetex-bin-latex, tetex-latex and their dependecies installed all are version 2007-177.1.noarch.x86_64. In spite of these i don’t have latex:
bash: latex: command not found
/usr/bin/xdvi: line 31: kpsewhich: command not found
/usr/bin/xdvi: line 59: exec: xdvi-xaw3d.bin: not found
bash: dvips: command not found
I have the same system installed the same way on my laptop (amd) and there everything works fine.
Does anyone have a hint what might be the problem?
I also have opensuse 11.0 64bit on my desktop and latex works fine for me. I have the following tex packages installed
justin@desktop:~> rpm -qa | grep tex
justin@desktop:~> which latex
I also have kile installed as a front end for latex editing.
It sounds like you did install the tex stuff through yast, correct?
If you don’t have it installed, try installing the findutils-locate package and issue the command
. Once it is done (takes a couple of minutes), do
to see what files are on your system with latex in the name. If it outputs to many, you can pipe it to grep to search for only binaries
locate latex | grep bin
If a binary does come up, make sure that it is in your path
Hopefully some of this will be helpful.
Thanks Justin, problem solved and my thesis saved! The list of your rpm-s helped. Apparently i had some 32bit packages mixed with the 64bit architecture. They were installed according to Yast, but the system couldn’t find them.
Glad to be of help. I know how it goes, I am trying to finish my thesis/dissertation in the next couple of weeks… maybe I should spend a little less time on the forums and more working
