# eitl.sh Easy Install of TeXLive

(C) Rolf Niepraschk@gmx.de,herbert@dante.de

This script allows the easy install of a current TeXLive
version over the net. It is tested with the current
Linux versions of OpenSUSE and Ubuntu. The script does

- looking for a fast server
- downloading the install script
- deleting an existing TeXLive version from
  Ubuntu (deb) or openSUSE (rpm)
- extracting and running the install script
- installing a complete up-to-date TeXLive from tug.org
- installing the non free fonts from tug.org which are
  not part of TeXLive, like arial, Luxi mono, aso
- installing a dummy package for an existing deb (Ubuntu)
  or rpm (openSuSE) TeXLive
- installing the GUIs TeXmaker and TeXworks
- creating files zzz-texlive.sh for /etc/profile.d/

without specifing a directory, TeXLive will be installed
in the home directory ~/texlive. For another one run
the script with e.g.

./eitl.sh /usr/local/texlive

If something goes wrong, then run eitl.sh with the restore option

./eitl.sh restore

it restores the .bashrc and deletes the files 
/etc/profile.d/zzz-texlive.*  if present

It is possible to create files zzz-texlive.(c)sh
in /etc/profile.d/ for systemwide definitions
instead of the entries in the local .bashrc
If you prefer a system wide setting then set

CREATE_PROFILE_FILES=1

the default is 0.

For some actions the script needs to be root. In such
cases it asks for the root password.

eitl – Easy in­stall of Texlive

The script al­lows the easy in­stall of a cur­rent TeXLive ver­sion over the net. It is tested with the cur­rent Linux ver­sions of OpenSUSE and Ubuntu. The script:

  • looks for a fast server
  • down­loads the in­stall script
  • deletes an ex­ist­ing TeXLive ver­sion from Ubuntu (deb) or openSUSE (rpm)
  • ex­tracts and runs the in­stall script
  • in­stalls a com­plete up-to-date TeXLive from tug.org
  • in­stalls the non free fonts from tug.org which are not part of TeXLive, like ar­ial, Luxi mono, etc.
  • in­stalls the GUIs TeXmaker and TeXworks
  • cre­ates files zzz-texlive.sh/csh for /etc/pro­file.d/
If no di­rec­tory is spec­i­fied, TeXLive will be in­stalled in the home di­rec­tory ~/texlive. For an­other di­rec­tory, run the script with the di­rec­tory name; e.g.:

./eitl.sh /usr/lo­cal/texlive

for some ac­tions the script needs to be root. In such cases it asks for the root pass­word.
