[texlive-core] Warning and error messages during installation

takuwan - about 2 months ago -

Hi,

I installed the texlive-core package from the repos. I got funny messages and I don’t really understand their meanings or what is causing these errors:

$ sudo pacman -S texlive-core

RE: [texlive-core] Warning and error messages during installation - bill-auger - about 2 months ago -

this issue has been raised many times - it is related to some non-free fonts which are removed in the parabola package - the error messages are harmless - the install did not fail; and the programs should work as expected

there is much detail in these tickets and their linked tickets:

Thank you for the information. I overlooked these previous tickets.

RE: [texlive-core] Warning and error messages during installation - bill-auger - about 2 months ago -

TLDR: the licensing issue may be resolved upstream soon - there are multiple open tickets about re-evaluating the texlive packages in libre - maybe they can all be removed from the blacklist soon; and the arch recipes could be used, eliminating the error messages
