I am using TexLive 2015 and I would like to move on to 2016 or even better 2017.
I read on internet that uninstalling and doing a fresh install is a better idea than upgrading TexLive, is it true?
Anyways I started looking for the ways to see how I can uninsntall TexLive from my ubuntu 16.04 LTS (64 bit) and I found this: Open the link
I had installed Texlive using terminal so the path is
\usr\share\texlive and not
\usr\local\texlive as suggested in the above link.
My question is to uninstall TexLive, is it necessary to go through all those steps?
If yes, the only change I need to make in those commands is changing the path from
\usr\share\texlive or I should change something more?
Well as it turns out, to do the job of removing TexLive, one simply needs to:
sudo apt-get purge texlive-* sudo apt-get autoremove sudo apt-get autoclean
