|DAIMI TeX installation on Mac OS X 10.2|
To make it compliant with the DAIMI TeX installation.
Install TeXLiveInsert latest TExLive CD (get it from Kaja or alternatively get it from ww.tug.org/texlive). Open .../Applications/Utilties/Terminal
% cd /Volumes/TeXLive-TUG2002/ % sudo bash install-cd.shSince the install script does not propose a platform choose one by typing P and select
<C> Mac OSX/Darwin 5.3by typing R such it writes
Current platform: Mac OSX/Darwin 5.3Return to main menu by typing R
Choose installation scheme by typing S and select
texlive_full by typing D
Now customize it. First language collections by typing
L. Deselect all by typing -.
Return to main menu by typing R
Change directories by typing D
Change TeXDir from /usr/TeX to /usr/local/teTeX by typing 1k and set new value to /usr/local/teTeX
Return to main menu by typing R
Do the insatllation by typing I. This takes quite a while!
Add a soft link:
cd /usr/local/teTeX/bin sudo ln -s powerpc-darwin5.3 powerpc-apple-darwin-currentIn this way the various front ends can find the TeX binaries
Install DAIMI TeX local additionsSkip thsi section if you do not want the local DAIMI TeX additions.
The local DAIMI TeX additions are on harald placed in /opt/local/TeX/texmf-local. These should be copied to /usr/local/teTeX. This can be done with .../Applications/RBrowserLite. RBrowserLite must be able to write in /usr/local/teTeX, but because the TeXLive installation is done as root/superuser (sudo), /usr/local/teTeX is owned by root and only root can make changes there. There are two possibilities, either run RBrowserLite as root (sudo open .../Applications/RBrowserLite, I guess - haven't tried) or change owner of /usr/local/teTeX:
sudo chown NN /usr/local/teTeX(perhaps sudo chown -R NN /usr/local/teTeX would be better) Now remove the /usr/local/teTeX/texmf-local installed by TeXLive (it is just a bunch of empty directories)
sudo rm -rf org-texmf-localopen RBrowserLite,
choose the menu item Go > New Site... and in the Login panel choose
Protocol: FTP (not Public FTP),
Choose the menu item Go > Local Viewer (if not already open) and navigate to /usr/local/teTeX. Then drag the texmf-local folder from the FTP View folder to the Local View Folder (approx. 25 Mb). Done.
Get the i-InstallerIf you do not need to run dvips (because you include eps-files) and can do with pdflatex, please skip the next two sections.
get II2.dmg, mount it and put the i-Installer application in .../Applications/Utililties
Change the place where local copies of packes are stored to e.g. /users/NN/Misc/i-Packages (Default is /users/NN/Documents/i-Packages) to avoid back up of the files (in case you ~/Docments/... are backed up).
