This package is now also updated accordingly.

The code has been updated. Please update to 0.5.1
Beware tht libraries installed in /var/lib (!) are now in /usr/share.
Please also be careful if using advanced features because central TeXLive packages have not been updated for the new package organization.

Same problem here:

Retrieving new TeXLive database from CTAN...
Initializing ...
Can't get object for collection-mathextra at /usr/bin/tllocalmgr line 107.

Also having the collection-mathextra problem, is there a workaround to get it working?

Thanks and looking forward to an update.

Hi remyoudompheng,
I have texlive-science installed, but tllocalmgr still produces the error.
Looking forward for the patch and package update.

I'm having the collection-mathextra problem as well and would also be happy about a patch :-)

Hello alleut,
collection-mathextra is not an Archlinux package but a TexLive collezction of packages. The Archlinux package texlive-core is made of many TexLive collections (including mathextra).

The collection-mathextra has merged with collection-science (= texlive-science package) into collection-mathscience upstream, so our organization is a bit disturbed now.

The most logical thing to do now is to map texlive-science to collection-mathscience and remove collection-mathextra from texlive-core. I will make a small patch to texlive-localmanager for this.

Well, as usual, it had worked fine but then the error appeared:
% tllocalmgr
Initializing ...
Can't get object for collection-mathextra at /usr/bin/tllocalmgr line 107.

AFAIK, there is no texlive-mathextra package in repos.

Thanks to Rémy, the package is finally up to date again. Thanks to everyone composing workarounds while my perl was not sufficient to do so.

I still strive for more expressive error messages to better help users encountering errors as itsok-dontworry and randompie describe, which usually signal wrong arguments or usage. For example, the minionpro font is not part of the texlive distribution, thus tllocalmagr cannot be used to install it.
