  • This package will be updated once a year in general, following the TeX Live release in April.
  • You are recommended to use pandoc-bin instead of pandoc.
  • You can select a different mirror(e.g. fastest mirror in your country, see CTAN Sites) by changing the line (be careful of the ending systems/texlive/tlnet/)
_mirror='rsync.dante.ctan.org/CTAN/systems/texlive/tlnet/'

Users in mainland China are recommended to use bfsu mirror, set

_mirror='mirrors.bfsu.edu.cn/CTAN/systems/texlive/tlnet/'
  • _syncdir works as a local CTAN/telnet mirror (about 4.5GiB). You can change it to a different place if your BUILDDIR is on tmpfs, which may not have enough space
_syncdir="CTAN/tlnet"
  • Just ignore the adding to path messages (MANPATH INFOPATH PATH), they have been linked to the correct path already.
  • checksum is skipped as the shasum of install-tl-unx.tar.gz is varying. There is a directory called install-tl-YYYYMMDD (YYYYMMDD is the pkgver) and its contents are changing in every release.
  • rsync is added to makedepends for faster installation.
  • I plan to change the pkgver to be like 2021_20220220 in future, where the first 2021 means this is TeX Live 2021, and 20220220 is from install-tl-unx.tar.gz's contents. Current pkgver is not obvious enough. Especially when TeX Live 2022 has not been released yet, but we have pkgver=20220220!

Cannot install package. The PKGBUILD specified that this package conflicts with texlive-bin and other texlive packages, but at the same time it also depends on them. Please fix

I got the following warning when I tried to install the package

aura >>= Determining dependencies...

aura >>= WARNING: The PKGBUILD of texlive-full contains blacklisted bash expressions.

    rsync -av --delete --info=progress2 --info=name0 rsync://${_mirror} ${_syncdir}

aura >>= rsync can be used to download arbitrary scripts that aren't tracked by this PKGBUILD.
aura >>= Do you wish to quit the build process? [Y/n]
aura >>= Cancelled further processing to avoid potentially malicious bash code.

Is that some thing that I should worry about?

This package conflicts with dvisvgm from the official repositories but this is not included in the PKGBUILD

svenf commented on 2023-06-20 10:22 (UTC)

The package texlive-core has been removed/renamed to texlive-basic (see the news article). Since asymptote already depends on the latter, this package now conflicts with its own dependency. Adding 'texlive-basic' to both provides and conflicts and rebuilding the package fixes it.

@sukanka THX! I found out that the reason for the previous error is that there is an extra telnet in the path, producing ~/.cache/yay/texlive-full/src/CTAN/tlnet/tlnet/, which may be a problem with the mirror. After switching the mirror the problem was solved.

sukanka commented on 2023-03-07 12:34 (UTC) (edited on 2023-03-07 12:34 (UTC) by sukanka)

@liblaf please check whether there is CTAN/tlnet under ~/.cache/yay/texlive-full/src. Or you may try another mirror, such as bfsu, which is even blazing faster. I've just verified that it works fine.

I got an error when installing with yay --sync --editmenu texlive-full:

The only change I made to PKGBUILD was the mirror, since the original mirror was slow and tuna is blazing fast in my case.

_mirror='mirrors.tuna.tsinghua.edu.cn/CTAN/systems/texlive/tlnet'

Did I do something wrong? How should I fix that?

niqingliang2003 commented on 2022-12-30 02:00 (UTC)

does it include latest context - LMTX?

sukanka commented on 2022-11-25 11:17 (UTC)

@kernelisstrong, you can change the mirror used in the pkgbuild to the fastest one in your region.

kernelisstrong commented on 2022-11-25 10:55 (UTC)

@sukanka thank you very much. I wanted to ask you if there is a way to speedup the installation because the package takes hours to download even with fast connections.
