Since tetex -- the standard distribution of TeX and friends for Unix systems -- is no longer maintained, many users have expressed the wish that it be replaced by TeXLive. See this forum discussion for more details. The good news is that TeXLive packages for Arch Linux (based on TeXLive 2007 with incremental updates to the latest version of all CTAN packages) are now available in community (as of Sept. 27, 2007). Now by installing the package texlive-core (85MB) you will have a very solid typesetting system at your disposal.

List of all texlive-* packages

The texlive packages are arranged into four groups: texlive-most, texlive-most-doc, texlive-lang, and texlive-lang-doc. The dummy package texlive-all will install everything. As you can see, the documentation has been packaged separately, for the benefit of users who want to save space or who prefer to access the documentation online.

NOTE: For most packages in texlive-most (but not for texlive-bin and the documention), a *-svn version is also available in [community].

The essential package texlive-core contains the basic texmf-dist tree, while texlive-bin contains the binaries. It is based on the “medium” install scheme of the original TeXLive installable CD and DVD. All other packages are based on the eponymous collections in TeXLive. The links bring to a list of the CTAN packages contained in each Arch package.
