just started using Ubuntu (11.10 oneiric). It is running on a virtual machine. I used to use SuSE. However, SuSE is now with Novel, which goes hand in hand with Microsoft. So now shifted to Ubuntu.

For documentation I use LaTeX and installed a package. This package uses a pre-processer (it is called "mal").

I ran the textconfig rehash command as required, but when I try to run the program, I get a "program not found" error. I am guessing that it is not in my path. (a sudo did not help)

Any idea?

I understand you mean texconfig. To use it you must install the texlive-binaries Install texlive-binaries package by running:

sudo apt-get install texlive-binaries

or clicking here:

Install via the software center
