@jfernandz yes I noticed this as well (after installing texlive-most-doc). How are the *.pkgs files generated? Maybe the packager of texlive-most-doc needs to do this?

@hv15 in fact texlive-most-doc_20200622-1.pkgs is not in the filesystem, despite indeed I've got installed texlive-most-doc package

@hv15 all files in /var/lib/texmf/arch/installedpkgs/ folder have 644 permissions and are owned by root, so I'm not sure this has something to do with a particular texlive package installed by pacman.

@jfernandz, what are the permissions on texlive-most-doc_20200622-1.pkgs? I don't have/use texlive-most-doc, so I can't confirm where the problem is coming from...

When I run tllocalmgr status I get the following error message:

Initializing ...
Cannot open /var/lib/texmf/arch/installedpkgs/texlive-most-doc_20200622-1.pkgs

@phenethylamin, the error message is not very clear, but the lscape package is not present in the TLPDB (locally or upstream it seems). Doing a search through shows that it isn't even listed, except as part of latex-graphics. This seems to be by design as could be understood on the package webpage: The package is part of the latex-graphics bundle, which is one of the collections in the LaTeX ‘required’ set of packages (

@Abello966, could you let us know what package you were trying to install?

Same issue with latest version, calling install (on lscape package). Full output:

Retrieving new TeXLive database from CTAN...
Initializing ...

tllocalmgr> install lscape

@Abello966, how are you calling tllocalmgr? What CTAN package are you trying to install?

Abello966 commented on 2020-08-03 02:28

Latest version's (git tag:tllocalmgr-fix-texlive-local-match.patch) install command is not working. Using tllocalmgr returns that "command install is not defined" while opening the shell and running install "manually" returns "Can't call method "revision" on an undefined value at /usr/bin/tllocalmgr line 418."

@hv15 aaah yes, thank you for the answer! Could you pin your answer or put it into the --help page?
