The Tex Live included in Ubuntu 12.04 is very old (2009), and I would like to install the latest version to be able to edit the Ubuntu manual.
How do I do that from the terminal?
Hello, my name is Chris. I am a student pursuing a career in technical writing and I would like to assist the Ubuntu community while gaining experience & building my resume.
I need to install upstream version of TeX Live for 12.04 to edit the manual for Ubuntu. I am having a difficult time installing it per the directions @ http://ubuntu-manual.org/getinvolved/editors#install-texlive.
TeX Live documents are on my computer, but I am not able to run the install. No TeX Live program found on my computer. Any help is greatly appreciated! ~Thanx!~
Below I have listed the prior attempts & links to view the posts of each attempt:
I have tried using the official backports of the latest (2012) TeX-Live via their PPA. Please refer to link below for the particulars.
I've also tried running Latex as suggested. Please refer to link below for the particulars.
