# eitl.sh Easy Install of TeXLive (C) Rolf Niepraschk@gmx.de,firstname.lastname@example.org 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. Report bugs to the authors. # $Id: README 37 2012-08-16 10:16:10Z herbert $
