1. NAME

update-texmf - shell script to generate /etc/texmf/texmf.cnf

2. SYNOPSIS

update-texmf "[options]"

3. DESCRIPTION

This manual page documents briefly the

R update-texmf command. This manual page was written for the Debian GNU/Linux distribution because the original script was designed for Debian packaging system.

update-texmf is a shell script to generate /etc/texmf/texmf.cnf from files in /etc/texmf/texmf.d/*.cnf

The tex-common provides 05TeXMF.cnf to 95NonPath.cnf and we assume that other TeX related packages should use the name only with the lower cases. The two digit numeral determines the order in which update-texmf read a file.

A user who wants to customize /etc/texmf/texmf.cnf should add, for example, 22mymacro.cnf in /etc/texmf/texmf.d/ and run 'update-texmf'. Thanks to ucf(1) update-texmf will regard manual changes of /etc/texmf/texmf.cnf, however it is recommended to change the files in /etc/texmf/texmf.d/ and to generate /etc/texmf/texmf.cnf.

4. OPTIONS

-v, --verbose

-d, --debug
