# eitl.sh Easy Install of TeXLive

(C) Rolf Niepraschk@gmx.de,herbert@dante.de

This script allows the easy install of a current TeXLive
version over the net. It is tested with the current
Linux versions of OpenSUSE and Ubuntu. The script does

- looking for a fast server
- downloading the install script
- deleting an existing TeXLive version from
  Ubuntu (deb) or openSUSE (rpm)
- extracting and running the install script
- installing a complete up-to-date TeXLive from tug.org
- installing the non free fonts from tug.org which are
  not part of TeXLive, like arial, Luxi mono, aso
- installing a dummy package for an existing deb (Ubuntu)
  or rpm (openSuSE) TeXLive
- installing the GUIs TeXmaker and TeXworks
- creating files zzz-texlive.sh for /etc/profile.d/

without specifing a directory, TeXLive will be installed
in the home directory ~/texlive. For another one run
the script with e.g.

./eitl.sh /usr/local/texlive

If something goes wrong, then run eitl.sh with the restore option

./eitl.sh restore

it restores the .bashrc and deletes the files 
/etc/profile.d/zzz-texlive.*  if present

It is possible to create files zzz-texlive.(c)sh
in /etc/profile.d/ for systemwide definitions
instead of the entries in the local .bashrc
If you prefer a system wide setting then set

CREATE_PROFILE_FILES=1

the default is 0.

For some actions the script needs to be root. In such
cases it asks for the root password.

Report bugs to the authors.
