For another one run the script with e.g. ./eitl.sh /usr/local/texlive for some actions the script needs to be root. In such cases it asks for the root password.

eitl – Easy install of Live

The script allows the easy install of a current Live version over the net. It is tested with the current Linux versions of OpenSUSE and Ubuntu. The script:

  • looks for a fast server
  • downloads the install script
  • deletes an existing Live version from Ubuntu (deb) or openSUSE (rpm)
  • extracts and runs the install script
  • installs a complete up-to-date Live from tug.org
  • installs the non free fonts from tug.org which are not part of Live, like arial, Luxi mono, etc.
  • installs the GUIs maker and works
  • creates files zzz-texlive.sh/csh for /etc/profile.d/

If no directory is specified, Live will be installed in the home directory ~/texlive. For another directory, run the script with the directory name; e.g.:

./eitl.sh /usr/local/texlive

for some actions the script needs to be root. In such cases it asks for the root password.
