tetex – Obsolete TeX distribution for Unix/Linux
tε-TeX was a comprehensive distribution of TeX, LaTeX and family,
designed for ease of compilation, installation and
In 2006, Thomas Esser announced he would no longer be able to
support, or to produce new versions of, tε-TeX. With the
appearance of TeX live 2007 (whose
Unix-system TeX support originally derived from tε-TeX), no-one
should be using tε-TeX at all, in new applications.
One of the “schemes” available when installing TeX live provides a
configuration very close to that of the old tε-TeX, but using
modern versions of programs and packages.
