#25567 closed defect (fixed)

pgf 2.0 not recognized by texlive path when installed

Reported by: joseph.gaeddert@… Owned by: nerdling (Jeremy Lavergne)
Priority: Normal Milestone:
Component: ports Version: 1.9.1
Keywords: Cc: drkp (Dan Ports)
Port: pgf


After recently upgrading texlive, and pgf (2.0), the LaTeX distro no longer recognizes the pgf and tikz files in the path. When compiling a pgf document with \usepackage{pgf} the following error is given

Document Class: article 2007/10/19 v1.4h Standard LaTeX document class

! LaTeX Error: File `pgf.sty' not found.

Type X to quit or <RETURN> to proceed,
or enter new name. (Default extension: sty)

Enter file name:

The fix usually involves rehashing the tex directories (e.g. texhash) but this does not seem to work. Normally I would consider this an upstream problem, but earlier versions of the Portfiles did not result in errors.

This ticket is similar to #25561 which was fixed with r69466. This might be an easy fix by changing the pgf Portfile (line 32 or nearby) from

set latex_local ${destroot}${prefix}/share/texmf-local


set latex_local ${destroot}${prefix}/share/texmf-texlive

You're right -- I changed the local texmf tree to $prefix/share/texmf instead of texmf-local when I moved texlive into $prefix/share/texmf-texlive for TL 2009. Ports referring to texmf-local should be updated to use texmf (not texmf-texlive, that's just for files installed by texlive)

Also worth noting is that these paths are available as $texlive_texmflocal etc. if you use PortGroup texlive (it just sets these variables by default, so safe to include in portfiles)

Now that I think about it, though, pTeX might install its texmf tree into $prefix/share/texmf, in which case putting local files in there is not going to be a great idea. If so, one or the other should be changed.

I'm actually now having the same problem with preview.sty not being found. I wonder if it's a similar issue with a different package.
