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.

I'm getting the same error as randompie when calling install from tllocalmgr:

$ Can't call method "revision" on an undefined value at /usr/bin/tllocalmgr line 416.

Please note that I have updated texlive-localmanger in git to fix various issues.
Don't hesitate to email me if you get issues with the latest version.

Also I am not sure that perl-http-message is needed to make this work.

I followed the directions (got the wget/curl error, fixed it).


$ tllocalmgr
Initializing ...
Welcome to the TeXLive Local Manager shell. Type 'help' for assistance.
tllocalmgr> install minionpro
Can't call method "revision" on an undefined value at /usr/bin/tllocalmgr line 418.

How to fix this?

Just to confirm the instructions worked just fine. I guess the package (and/or upstream code) can be updated accordingly.

@wilbowma procedure works perfectly. I used curl instead of wget, as he mentionned. Thank you !

Oh I see the problem; wget does not take that -o flag, curl would.

@arjunkc, I followed your instructions but get

First directive needs to be 'name', not --2016-07-01 11:40:07-- at /var/lib/texmf/arch/tlpkg/TeXLive/ line 108, <TMP> line 1.

I get this even when trying tllocalmgr clean.

Did you leave something out, or did I screw something up?

When texlive updated to the 2016, this no longer works. It returns the

Unknown directive

error when trying to read the texlive database. So I made a couple of manual changes. Edit the file


and change the line containing

our $TeXLiveServerURL = ""


our $TeXLiveServerURL = ""

Similarly change the $TeXLiveServerPath variable in the line right below it to

our $TeXLiveServerPath = "systems/texlive/2015/tlnet-final";

Then manually download the texlive database file using

wget -o ~/.texlive/texmf-var/arch/tlpkg/texlive.tlpdb

Finally we must edit the tllocalmgr script. Change the `$CTANBASEURL` to


Done! You might have to clean the build environment when rerunning tllocalmgr
