UPDATE-TEXMF(8) System Manager's Manual UPDATE-TEXMF(8)
update-texmf - shell script to generate /etc/texmf/texmf.cnf
This manual page documents briefly the update-texmf command. This man-
ual page was written for the Debian GNU/Linux distribution because the
original script was designed for Debian packaging system.
update-texmf is a shell script to generate /etc/texmf/texmf.cnf from
files in /etc/texmf/texmf.d/*.cnf
The tetex-bin provides 05TeXMF.cnf to 95NonPath.cnf and we assume that
other TeX related packages should use the name only with the lower
cases. The two digit numeral determines the order in which update-
texmf read a file.
A user who wants to customize /etc/texmf/texmf.cnf should add, for
example, 22mymacro.cnf in /etc/texmf/texmf.d/ and run 'update-texmf'.
Thanks to ucf(1) update-texmf will regard manual changes of
/etc/texmf/texmf.cnf, however it is recommended to change the files in
/etc/texmf/texmf.d/ and to generate /etc/texmf/texmf.cnf.
