I just installed the TexLive 2012 from the Ubuntu Repository. After installation, I try compiling and it gives the following error:

```
Unable to find pdftex.fmt.
```

Please let me know what is the problem?

Now I uninstalled and purged the entire latex distro, and now it is leaving packages unconfigured.

What would be the problem and what is the solution?

`pdftex`

and`pdflatex`
