Experimental setup for Ubuntu

Ubuntu comes with texlive from Feb 2007. That is too old for ConTeXt. I tried to install a parallel tree using the minimals and that failed. So, I tried to merge the minimal tree with texlive. Here are the steps (I am new to linux, so may be doing something really wrong here, use at your own risk)

cd $HOME
rsync -rpzctlv rsync:// .
cd bin
mtxrun --script update --platform=linux-64 --texroot=../tex --update
cd $HOME/tex/texmf-context
rsync -rvzctlp rsync://'/minimals/current/fonts/new/ minimals/current/fonts/common/ minimals/current/fonts/old/' fonts
cd $HOME/tex/
rsync -rvzctlp rsync:// texmf-context
cd $HOME
ln -s tex/texmf-context texmf

cd $HOME/bin

Seems to work ok. I will test more, and if it works, maybe copy this information to the main page --Aditya 21:55, 16 December 2007 (CET)
