As many other users, you ran into one of the cryptic error messages of tllocalmgr: It just wants to tell you that it is not responsible for this package. The texlive-localmanager can only handle packages that are part of the TeXLive distribution. As you can read about smallcap on CTAN <> it is part of MiKTeX but not TeXLive, so tllocalmanager cannot help you with it.

Ufortunately, I still have the same issue as itsok-dontworry:

% tllocalmgr
Initializing ...
Welcome to the TeXLive Local Manager shell. Type 'help' for assistance.
tllocalmgr> install smallcap
Can't call method "revision" on an undefined value at /usr/bin/tllocalmgr line 416.

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.
