Ticket #25478 (closed defect: fixed)
texlive-latex-recommended: beamer.cls depends on pgfcore.sty
|Reported by:||jjstickel@…||Owned by:||dports@…|
I discovered that when using beamer.cls, which is included in texlive-latex-recommended, it requires pgfcore.sty, which is separately in texlive-pictures. One solution would be to make texlive-latex-recommended depend on texlive-pictures, but this may be a bit overkill. I suppose the real bug is upstream: beamer should be in latex-extra, which does depend on pictures, and not in latex-recommended. At the minimum, perhaps a warning or a note in the description could tell the user that pictures is also required if using beamer.cls.
Another option might be to depend on just the existing pgf port. However, I had this installed and the pgfcore.sty there was not found by latex (not sure why and do not have time to troubleshoot right now).
BTW, thanks for the updated texlive ports.
