Sure, if you do your homework, everyone here is friendly and patient ;-)

Of course that fixed it ... but that is exactely my question ...
why did you install it as root just to change it back to $USER afterwards ;-)


Are you sure that is from a proper run? It looks like it is perfectly
valid, no error reported whatsoever.

please do NOT send odt files ... they are a pain to open, and what
you send is a plain text file, nothing else....
either attach the output by captureing it with
	tlmgr conf > tlmgrconf.txt 2>&1
or copy and paste from terminal directly into the email, but please
no odt/doc/xls etc, thanks.

But besides that, that looks all very normal and in order.

Do you actually have *problems*? Please describe what are your problems!

Best wishes
