As with many other Linux distros, the local package manager tlmgr is broken due to wrong paths/permissions. The AUR ttlocalmgr is broken and orphean.

:''Since September 12, 2008, TeX Live packages have been available in [extra] for both architectures, hence replacing the obsolete [http://www.tug.org/tetex/ teTeX]. Packages for the 2009 release of TeX Live have been available since early September 2009 (thus before the official upstream release). By installing the packages {{Pkg|texlive-core}} and its dependency {{Pkg|texlive-bin}}, you will have a very solid and bleeding-edge typesetting system at your disposal!''

managing TexLive packages is a mess.

As with many other Linux distros, the local package manager tlmgr is broken due to wrong paths/permissions. The AUR ttlocalmgr is broken and orphean. I do think the whole install process of TexLive shall be rethink in order to use the tlmgr.pl script. It seems that installing TexLive from tug.org (not recommanded ) fixes the package manager issues. Gabx (talk) 15:32, 29 September 2013 (UTC)
