I just installed TeX Live 2012, --on ubuntu 12.04-- via a this PPA, but cannot seem to figure out how to install tlmgr. I need help installing it.

See here - the TeXLive installed via PPA most likely (I don't use Ubuntu) does not contain tlmgr. If you need tlmgr, install TL2012 directly.

Thank you. I vividly remember going through that post, but figured the texlive 2012 backport was an exception. I just figured that perhaps there was something I could have overlooked, especially that I installed texlive-full –  phiri Aug 29 '12 at 18:40

@phiri: I doubt that any distribution includes tlmgr, as thou shall only install packages through the distribution's package manager, not tlmgr. –  Martin Schröder Aug 29 '12 at 20:12

thank you for this. Incidentally, I managed to manually [1] install what I wanted. [1]tex.stackexchange.com/a/39165/17923 –  phiri Aug 30 '12 at 20:30
    
@phiri: That's IMHO useless: Install pristine TL2012 instead, either from CTAN or from Debian. –  Martin Schröder Aug 30 '12 at 21:14
