[Update] A script to automate the installation of TeXLive 2011 on Ubuntu

About the installation of TeXlive 2011 (general matters)

The previous script to install TeXLive 2010 worked fine to install TeXLive 2011 on Ubuntu The previous script to install TeXLive 2010 worked quite fine to install TeXLive 2011, I just had to modify a few things to get settings working correctly. Since I have Kubuntu Natty (11.04), I had to install zenity, but it is just a minor issue. Maybe one day I will write a program more sophisticated with Python, but nothing sure by now.

If you are interested, you are welcome to download this script by clicking here.

For further informations, I encourage you to refer to the previous post :

Though the script contain other instructions to install TeXlive on Archlinux, I have not tested it on this platform, only on Kubuntu 11.04.

More updates for LuaLaTeX users

Finally, if you use LuaLaTeX to compile your documents, you might be interested in further updates from TLContrib. In particular, at the time I am writing this blog post, a newer version of the microtype package is available.

To install packages from TLContrib you can refer to the official site or to my previous blog post.

Basically you have to call tmlgr by the following command (depending on your computer’s architecture, mine is 64bit)
sudo /usr/local/texlive/2011/bin/x86_64-linux/tlmgr --gui
And then, you have to write the repository of TLContrib by loading an other repository (in the menu : tlmgr –> Load other repository, and then push the button “Update all installed”)
