(1) which Linux variant are you using

(2) where exactly did you execute



If you just do this in a terminal, this setting only lives until that terminal dies.

To make it more permanent it is probably better to add it to .profile and perhaps also .bashrc (if you plan on ssh'ing to this linux box)

You should probably write it as

export PATH=/usr/local/texlive/2016/bin/x86_64-linux:$PATH

Subject: [texhax] Problem with TeXLive after installation

Hello, my name is John and I have a problem with TeXLive. I'm final GNU/Linux user and I follow https://www.tug.org/texlive/quickinstall.html for install TeXLive. I complete all the steps without problems. After install, in terminal I could run a hello-world tex file with pdflatex without problems.

The problem ocurrs after close the terminal and open another terminal window. TeXLive not appears installed and nor any thing related to it. Indeed a LaTeX editor can't find TeXLive after this was installed even when I could run pdflatex in terminal.

If I write in terminal pdflatex the output is: bash: pdflatex: no order found

I have TeXLive bins in the folder /usr/local/texlive/2016/bin/x86_64-linux and I suppose I have permission to write into /usr/local/texlive because I did

sudo setfacl -m u:myusername:rwx /usr/local/texlive

I did: PATH=/usr/local/texlive/2016/bin/x86_64-linux:$PATH ... is the correct way for do this?

I hope I'm not forgetting any relevant information to give me any suggestion. Sorry for my English. Regards.
