CTAN Update: texliveonfly

Date: October 6, 2011 7:39:26 AM CEST
On Sun, 2 Oct 2011 submitted an update to the texliveonfly package. Summary description: providing MikTeX-like "package downloading on the fly" for TeX Live License type: gpl Announcement text:
texliveonfly.py should now work both on python 2.6+ and 3, and on OS X and Linux. Default compiler is now "pdflatex", to cater to the mainstream user. In addition, many new features added: -User can now set --texlive_bin=LOCATION -Graphical privilege escalation is now default, and the script will no longer escalate unless necessary (i.e. local texlive installs are now viable) -Now displays output from the compiler, allows the user to interact directly with it (e.g. when "-interaction=nonstopmode" is unset), and inherits the exit code. -Now capable of speech-synthesized notifications; turn on using: --speech_when="always"/"installing"/"failed"/some combination. Finally, default options have been placed near the top of the script; feel free to modify them as you wish!
This package is located at http://mirror.ctan.org/support/texliveonfly/ . More information is at http://www.ctan.org/pkg/texliveonfly (if the package is new it may take a day for that information to appear). We are supported by the TeX Users Group http://www.tug.org . Please join a users group; see http://www.tug.org/usergroups.html .
Thanks for the upload. For the CTAN Team Rainer Schöpf

texliveonfly – On-the-fly download of missing live packages

The package provides a script that performs ‘on the fly’ downloads of missing packages, while a document is being compiled. (This feature is already available in the Mik distribution for Windows machines.)

To use the script, replace your () compilation command with texliveonfly.py file.tex (default options are --engine=pdflatex and --arguments="-synctex=1 -interaction=nonstopmode", which may all be changed).

The script is designed to work on Linux distributions.
