→‎Install the ConTeXt packages: - update to latest debian package information
== Install the ConTeXt packages ==
The status of ConTeXt in Debian/unstable is currently up to date with the soon to be released TeX Live 20112021, and includes all the necessary bits and pieces, plus the modules shipped in TeX Live.
If you are running Debian sid or later, then the <code>context</code> and <code>context-modules</code> packages should already be visible (and the <code>context-nonfree</code> and <code>context-doc-nonfree</code> packages are in the nonfree repository).
Then do
aptitude update
aptitude install context context-modules
# optional
aptitude install [ context-nonfree] [ context-doc-nonfree]
* The final version in debian squeeze bullseye (aka debian stable 611.02) is 20092020.03.1110.2620200331-21* In ''unstable'' is a the version that will be in is from the TeX Live 20112021
=== Install latest unstable context .deb package ===
2. run as root (the version number might have increased a bit)
dpkg --install context_2011context_2021.
mtxrun --generate
mtxrun --generate
Step 2. is currently still necessary, but soon an update of tex-common will run mtxrun --generate automatically when packages have changed (like mktexlsr), and there will be no need to run this anymore.
Step 3. needs to be done only when you have files in TEXMFHOME or you change things there.
