CentOS 7.0 - man page for texconfig (centos section 1)

texconfig(1)				     TeX Live				     texconfig(1)

       texconfig - configures teTeX or TeX Live

       texconfig-sys - configures teTeX or TeX Live system-wide


       texconfig [ commands ...]


       texconfig  allows  one  to  configure  and  maintain TeX in an easy and convenient manner,
       offering a series of dialog boxes to the user.

       The tlmgr program has subsumed this function for TeX Live.  This  program  is  still  sup-
       ported, but the tlmgr interface is much more actively developed and tested.

       After  choosing	settings  or options, the appropriate files are changed automatically and
       the new settings are applied for the user.  If needed, copies of  files	in  TEXMFDIST  or
       TEXMFMAIN will be made in the user's TEXMFCONFIG tree.

       texconfig  uses	either the whiptail(1) or dialog(1) program to communicate with the user,
       so must be run in a terminal.

       For making system-wide changes, which will apply to all users of TeX (for example, default
       paper  size  and  so  on),  run texconfig-sys instead.  Changed or generated files will be
       placed in TEXMFSYSCONFIG.  (You may need to be root to do this.)

       texconfig also offers a non-interactive batch mode which can be accessed with the  follow-
       ing commands

       Commands  that  accept further options usually display available options if called without
       them.  For example, texconfig dvipdfm paper will inform about valid paper settings.

       conf   Display the system configuration.

       dvipdfm paper [letter|legal|ledger|tabloid|a4|a3]
	      Set up dvipdfm to use papersize PAPER by default.

       dvips add PRINTERNAME
	      Create a new (empty)  configuration  file  TEXMFCONFIG/dvips/config/config.PRINTER-
	      NAME.  This file can later be filled with the mode, offset or printcmd options

       dvips del PRINTERNAME
	      Remove config.PRINTERNAME

       dvips mode
	      List available MetaFont modes.

       dvips [-P PRINTER] mode MODE
	      Change  the  MetaFont mode to MODE for PRINTER or for all output files (config.ps),
	      if no -P option is given.

       dvips [-P PRINTER] offset x-OFFSET,y-OFFSET
	      Set printer offset for PRINTER or for all output files (config.ps), if no -P option
	      is  given.   Offsets  must  be  given  with units, e.g.  0pt,10pt You can use test-
	      page.tex from the LaTeX distribution to find these numbers.

       dvips [-P PRINTER] printcmd CMD
	      Set the printing command for PRINTER or for all output files (config.ps), if no  -P
	      option is given.	Commands might be lp or lpr.  See the description of the o option
	      in info dvips or the -O option in dvips(1).

       faq    Display the list of Frequently Asked Questions about teTeX (and their answers).

       font vardir DIR, font ro, font rw

	      This command allows to edit fmtutil.cnf(5) and (re)creates any new or changed  for-
	      mats afterwards.

       hyphen FORMAT
	      This  command  allows  to  edit the hyphenation configuration file for formats that
	      support this, and recreates the formats afterwards to  enable  the  new  languages.
	      Available formats are shown when no FORMAT is given.

	      Note that for formats that use LaTeX's language.dat,
	       e.g.   (pdf)jadetex  and  latex	itself, this change is not persistent, since this
	      file is a generated file.  You should not use this command  in  these  cases,  read
	      update-language(1) for alternatives.

       init [format]
	      Recreate format or all formats if none is given, and the font information.  This is
	      the same as calling fmtutil --byfmt format or fmtutil --all, respectively, followed
	      by updmap.

	      List  available  printer modes, together with the printers they were developed for,
	      and their DPI resolution

       mode MODE
	      Set the default printer mode in /etc/texmf/web2c/mktex.cnf or the  respective  user
	      file in $TEXMFCONFIG/web2c to MODE.

       paper [a4|letter]
	      Set  the	default  papersize  for  dvips,  dvipdfm,  pdftex  and	xdvi.  The set is
	      restricted because not all programs understand all sizes.

       pdftex paper [a4|letter]
	      Set the default paper size for pdftex.

       rehash Call mktexlsr.

       xdvi paper PAPER
	      Set the default paper size for xdvi.  The (long) list is available  with	texconfig
	      xdvi paper.

       To  let you change files, texconfig will open the editor specified in the VISUAL or EDITOR
       variables, or sensible-editor if both are unset.

       whiptail(1), dialog(1), tlmgr(1), tex(1), mf(1), vi(1), EDITOR environment variable.
