# Where is TexLive2012 after installing it via ISO?

I downloaded the latest TexLive2012 iso and installed it on my computer by running the install-tl script, I chosed the default installnation, and it finished successfully, but where can I find the executable binarys?

I'm using Ubuntu 12.04 LTS

Not really an answer, but rather an alternative for next time is the TeXLive Backports PPA which provides TeXLive 2012 for Precise as Ubuntu packages. –  gertvdijk Sep 17 '12 at 13:01

which tex should give you an answer, if it does not, you may have skipped the Post-install: setting PATH step from http://tug.org/texlive/quickinstall.html, which basically reuires you to add binaries path to your path environment. In my ~/.bashrc I have

PATH=/usr/local/texlive/2012/bin/i386-linux:\$PATH

In my opinion, you should not check the install option "Create symlinks in system directories" when you install.

Perhaps, it would be better to use the GUI to install Texlive 2012, by using:

./install-tl --gui


Before you start the GUI installation, install these two packages.

sudo apt-get install perl-tk p7zip


And then, you can run the Texlive installation.
