TexLive 2009 in Lucid

Asked by Nguyễn Hải Nam on 2010-05-03

Hello,

Is there any changes in the compilation of LaTeX in Lucid? Since I see that TeX Live 2009-7 is available, do I have to compile TeX Live from source? Just tried and the TeX Live built with Ubuntu didn't work (install-pkgs.sh even says that no TeX Live installed).

Thanks.

Hello.

I'm afraid the TeX Live packages in Lucid do not contain some of the programs and packages that we require to build the manual.

You'll need to download TeX Live from upstream. (It comes pre-compiled.)

Instructions for doing this may be found at http://ubuntu-manual.org/getinvolved/authors under the "Installing TeX Live 2009" heading.

Please feel free to contact me if you have any further questions or problems.
