Dear Rzch it is not hard.
Zou need to install the devx sfs and then download the texlive installer. If you run it you will have a lot of option how do build the texlive package.
kind regards

Hello recobayu !

This is great ! I downloaded your texlive and texstudio pets. They worked beautifully on a fresh Tahrpup 6.0.5 live-usb ! I had spent hours last year trying to figure this out for LaTeX and voilà, your pets work quickly, no issues. Could you try to get this into the official repos (not quite sure what those are...) ? I think that it is super useful.

I do have a quick question though : how do I go about adding packages that are not included ? For example, if I want to use 'qtree' how do I add this so texstudio can use it ? I can find them on CTAN, but I don't know where to place them nor if I need to recompile the TeX system or something... Also, how could I set it up to use beamer ?

Thanks a lot - honestly, this was maybe the biggest thing I disliked about Puppy - that it was missing a good way to use LaTeX. I use if very often.

emil - your link is broken ! http://boxen.math.washington.edu/home/emil/Latex/
any idea where I could find those pets ?

Very useful pets recobayu ,

I think this might help : https://www.ctan.org/pkg/texliveonfly?lang=en
It is a script to find missing packages...
BUT - I don't know how to use it. Anyone have any idea on how to get this script to work ??
Thanks,

Uio,
I'm very happy that my work is useful for us. I still don't know ow to add my pet to official repo (Tahrpup or puppylinux). Maybe someone who can access on official repo can download my pet and put in there. And about adding package that are not included, I still don't know how to do that. Maybe just add file .sty in to some texlive folder.

I am sorry, The University in Seattle stopped hosting all those accounts. I don't know if I can put all those files somewhere else, anyway they are quite old now.

kind regards

Okay, I'm sure that someone on these forums could host those files! They might be useful.

Does anyone have any idea how to add .sty files ? It would be great if the filesonthefly tool I mentioned above worked, but I just spent a while on the LaTeX IRC to no avail.

And the command tlmgr to add the packages does not work either. So it is, at present, difficult for the beginner to add needed packages. It is unfeasible to add a whole texlive package from ppm as it takes so much space.

Any ideas? I use LaTeX all the time, but it is a bit (very) difficult on Puppy.
Sigh.

PostPosted: Sun 15 May 2016, 17:36    Post subject: space for Latex Package  

Ok I elaborate a bit further, since it seems not to be straitforward. I tested this on my current system.

When you download the installer and run it you get a text menu. From there you can choose different types of install. The standart directory for installation is /usr/local/texlive.

This can be problematic, because this will install the files into your puppy savefile and choke it (probably everything above basic installation).

The usual way around is to make /usr/local/texlive a symbolic link to a directory on a physical drive with enough space . In my case I used /mnt/sda3/opt/texlive

The second thing I changed was that I selected "Portable Install" in the menu, I guessed it would install the whole texlive into one place and don't spread all the files around the linux directory tree. But I don't know if this is essential, Maybe somebody else can experiment and share observations.

After running the installer I had to export PATH=$PATH:/usr/local/texlive/bin/i386-linux
you can add the path also in /etc/profile (global) or in ~/.profile (just user) to use the programs.

if it works you could proceed to make the texlive folder into a sfs package.
hope this is not to cryptic

Hi emil,
Thanks for the detailed post. Unfortunately, I cannot get past the first step as I get the following error message when I try to run install-tl in terminal.

Can't locate Pod/Usage.pm in @INC (you may need to install the Pod::Usage module) (@INC contains: /tmp/mozilla_root0/install-tl-20160405/tlpkg /etc/perl /usr/local/lib/perl/5.18.2 /usr/local/share/perl/5.18.2 /usr/lib/perl5 /usr/share/perl5 /usr/lib/perl/5.18 /usr/share/perl/5.18 /usr/local/lib/site_perl .) at /tmp/mozilla_root0/install-tl-20160405/install-tl line 47.
BEGIN failed--compilation aborted at /tmp/mozilla_root0/install-tl-20160405/install-tl line 47.
Script completed hit RETURN to close window.

Any ideas?

I am using tahrpup 6.0.5 on a usb.

Yes, I think you need to install the PERL module Pod::Usage

load the devx_tahr_6.0.5.sfs for your OS then open a terminal and type:

Code:
#cpan App::cpanminus

then use cpanm like this:
Code:
#cpanm Pod::Usage


might get it going. Good luck.

Hi rockedge, okay, so that makes the installer work, so thanks !

Hi emil, I used the installer, but I tried setting a different location (options, then 'L') to /mnt/sdd1 (which is just big usb).
Then I chose portable install. But it insists on installing to /usr/local/texlive !

I think that part of the problem is that I don't know how to make a symbolic link. Would it be at all possible to provide more details? Sorry! I am not very well versed in linux.

Thanks,

Make a symlink

in a terminal:
Code:
#ln -s /mnt/sdd1  /usr/local/texlive


also in Rox with a drag and drop to another rox window will give option to copy move or symlink in the target directory

maybe let the install run. then go in and replace the directory with the symlink from above. Of course create the directory in /mnt/sdd1 that you will link to.

See what happens.
