i am new to Ubuntu and have Ubuntu 14.04.02 installed on my computer. I wanted to install the latest latex and so I downloaded and extracted the file from
install-tl-unx.tar.gz and according to instructions given here.
I wrote the command
./install-tl and after that wrote
i for installing latex on harddisk.but it was showing
./install-tl: mkdir(/usr/local/texlive/) failed, goodbye: Permission denied
what should I do ?
