Ubuntu: “Ignoring /etc/texmf/texmf.d/*.cnf during generation of texmf.cnf” when installing tex-common



Question:

Im having a lot of problems with my Ubuntu after the update from the 12.04 LTS to 14.04 LTS.

Every time I start the system, it shows a lot of dialogs saying that the system encountered problems, and it gives me the options "OK" and "Report the problem".

Also, my main problem is with apt-get not working. For example, when an upgrade is executed, it shows problems related to pages of Latex, as follows:

These problems never occurred before the update. I tried to remove the latex packages to solve the problem but even for other purposes APT-GET doesn't work.

Is there a way to fix this?


Solution:1

This happened to me during and after the upgrade to 14.04. It seems something is broken in textlive. updmap-sys can't find some files.

I fixed it the following way:

When you run apt-get -f install (or autoremove, or whatever triggers the error) you see the following at the beginning of the error:

Setting up tex-common (4.04) ...  Ignoring /etc/texmf/texmf.d/05TeXMF.cnf during generation of texmf.cnf, please remove manually!  Ignoring /etc/texmf/texmf.d/15Plain.cnf during generation of texmf.cnf, please remove manually!  Ignoring /etc/texmf/texmf.d/45TeXinputs.cnf during generation of texmf.cnf, please remove manually!

Ignoring /etc/texmf/texmf.d/95NonPath.cnf during generation of texmf.cnf, please remove manually!  Running mktexlsr. This may take some time... done.  Running updmap-sys. This may take some time...   updmap-sys failed. Output has been stored in  /tmp/updmap.FnIqXOSv  Please include this file if you report a bug.  

You have to take a look into the file mentioned in the second-to-last line:

less /tmp/updmap.FnIqXOSv  

Note: The file name will be different every time.

Scroll down to the end. Take note of all the .map files after the line starting with ERROR:

ERROR:  The following map file(s) couldn't be found:          antp.map (in /var/lib/texmf/web2c/updmap.cfg)          comicvn.map (in /var/lib/texmf/web2c/updmap.cfg)          csother.map (in /var/lib/texmf/web2c/updmap.cfg)          cstext.map (in /var/lib/texmf/web2c/updmap.cfg)          fi4.map (in /var/lib/texmf/web2c/updmap.cfg)          grverb.map (in /var/lib/texmf/web2c/updmap.cfg)          mscorevn.map (in /var/lib/texmf/web2c/updmap.cfg)          slantcm.map (in /var/lib/texmf/web2c/updmap.cfg)          zpeu.map (in /var/lib/texmf/web2c/updmap.cfg)  

Now open the file /var/lib/texmf/web2c/updmap.cfg with your favorite text editor, I use vi:

sudo vi /var/lib/texmf/web2c/updmap.cfg  

Search for every .map file you noted earlier and comment them out by prepending the line with a #.

Afterwards apt-get -f install should take a while to configure texlive but it should work.


Solution:2

Even the output of sudo apt-get install -f was the same as before.

I just could solve the problem by removing the packages related to latex as follow

sudo apt-get --purge remove texlive-base  sudo apt-get --purge remove tex-common  sudo apt-get --purge remove texinfo  

And after that I did as suggested, executing sudo apt-get install -f and after sudo apt-get autoremove. Apparently all dependencies were resolved.

Sometimes, not accepting conffile updates in /etc/texmf/updmap.d  causes updmap-sys to fail.  Please check for files with extension  .dpkg-dist or .ucf-dist in this directory  

While configuring the package tex-common there were some errors about certain configuration files. Removing these files should have fixed the problem:

sudo rm /etc/texmf/texmf.d/05TeXMF.cnf /etc/texmf/texmf.d/15Plain.cnf /etc/texmf/texmf.d/45TeXinputs.cnf /etc/texmf/texmf.d/55Fonts.cnf /etc/texmf/texmf.d/65BibTeX.cnf /etc/texmf/texmf.d/75DviPS.cnf /etc/texmf/texmf.d/80DVIPDFMx.cnf /etc/texmf/texmf.d/85Misc.cnf /etc/texmf/texmf.d/90TeXDoc.cnf /etc/texmf/texmf.d/95NonPath.cnf  

Then running sudo dpkg --configure tex-common and installing the packages per usual.
