This question already has an answer here:
I have setup two disks on my computer, Ubuntu,
/home. Later I found the disk space on
/ is not big enough (just 20G), so I installed my texlive to my own disk, somewhere under
$HOME. Now I want to install emacs' auctex using
synaptic package manager, but it says the prerequisite is to install the texlive.
I want to know is there a way to tell the
synaptic package manager, that texlive has been installed?
