I followed the advice of izx on how to install TexLive 2012 using the texlive-backports PPA. Before I started I removed all TexLive-related packages. The installation finished and everything seems to work fine. The only thing I noticed are some warnings in the output of the installer. Here is an excerpt of the output:

Warning: Old configuration style found in /etc/texmf/updmap.d
Warning: For now these files have been included, 
Warning: but expect inconsistencies.
Warning: These packages should be rebuild with tex-common.
Warning: Please see /usr/share/doc/tex-common/NEWS.Debian.gz
Warning: found file: /etc/texmf/updmap.d/10lmodern.cfg

There are more of that kind in the rest of the output:

$ sudo apt-get install texlive

you should run updmap-sys or updmap.

1 Answer 1

Please have a look at the NEWS.Debian file. The following is from this file:

If you are using PostScript fonts that are not packaged for Debian, some changes have been done: updmap now reads all updmap.cfg files it finds. That means, the easiest way to activate local fonts (in TEXMFLOCAL) by putting the respective map lines into /usr/local/share/texmf/web2c/updmap.cfg, and call updmap-sys once (as root). If you have fonts in your home directory you want to activate, paralleling the above you put the respective map line into $HOME/texmf/web2c/updmap.cfg and call updmap (as user). But be reminded that you have to do that everytime system fonts have changed (there is no automatic syncronization between user specific and system wide updmap(-sys) generated files).

In your case it should be sufficient to install the latest version of lmodern, which is 2.004.2-1 for Quantal. After that you run update-updmap and the warnung should disappear.

How can I lookup the version of lmodern? When I try to install the package apt-get states that my machine is up-to-date. By the way, I am still using Precise not Quantal. –  JJD Dec 15 '12 at 23:02

The command apt-cache policy lmodern will show you the version. However if apt-get says it is up-to-date, then you have the most recent version. –  qbi Dec 15 '12 at 23:14
    
Nice. It prompts Installed: 2.004.1-5~precise1, Candidate: 2.004.1-5~precise1 for me. –  JJD Dec 16 '12 at 1:04
