@hv15 That's what I used it for in the beginning - I wanted to update a few packages that recently implemented new functionality. Then I realized some updates depend on others -- e.g. the l3kernel. Now, I have an inconsistent installation with some files from the latest LaTeX2e <2020-02-02> patch level 2 release and some older ones. So the installation is broken, but it's kind of difficult to understand why, since the error messages are quire cryptic. So now I'm manually installing everything I think might be required. I know - great approach :D

@Ondrian tllocalmgr is meant to work together with the texlive-* packages. If there's some Tex package missing, or has some bug-fixes that are in upstream but not yet packaged, does it make sense to update these IMHO.

Hi - maybe I'm missing something, but is it possible to update all packages at once? Or is that not a desirable functionality? I figured that I can update multiple packages at once by executing tllocalmgr update pkg1 pkg2 pkg3.

@azerrima I just had the same problem. The installation of texlive-moderncv-git via aur caused the error. I uninstalled it together with it's dependencies via 'pacman -Rs texlive-moderncv-git' and now it tllocalmgr works...

As XZS is unresponsive, I suspect that the update (a small pkgver change) was automatically pushed with XZS's own tool ( Please keep maintaining this package for now.

Hey all, was recently updated, meaning that it now tracks upstream 100%. The enhancement patch applied on this package (adding package group 'textlive-local' and checking for are not included though. With this in mind though, is it worth while maintaining two very similar packages?

@sharethewisdom: thanks, added!

I had to change the git reference in the source array to


because makepkg stalled fetching sources. (probably something wrong on my end)

@azerrima @hv15 You're welcome! :)

Thanks @CaptainBern, I completely missed that issue, thanks for spotting it and for providing a fix. I've added this to the latest revision of the package.
