Back to the days in Nankai, I got fascinated with installing system, but the network traffic was expensive, thus Tex Live became a big problem.
I figured out a solution, i.e., install texlive via
.iso. In this way, I could download once, install many times for both Windows and Ubuntu.
After graduate, I return home. Network traffic is no longer a problem and I give a large partition (64G) to Ubuntu. Now
apt seems to be the best way, it saves me a lot of trouble.
So I move the installing guide here, use on your own risk:
to browser help instead of source code, install
./install-tl -portable --repository http://mirrors.tuna.tsinghua.edu.cn/CTAN/systems/texlive/tlnet
- move files to here and remove unneeded files (
- remember don’t move
