I just came back from a meeting with our IT department. I wanted them to
provide TL as a part of the programmes users can choose.
For now we will not be using a centrally maintained LaTeX installation
(several users will be on laptops and will be traveling, so LaTeX on a
share is not feasible, we'll see if the need present it self in the future).
One thing the IT department could do is to run an unattended TL installation
According to the to the documentation, one should be able to do an
unattended installation via
install-tl.bat -no-gui -profile file.profile
can a profile be written to simply install everything currently present
in tlnet? Without listing the collections?
Does anyone have experience regarding installing TL via a kind of
BTW: the documentation states that a TL installation should leave a
.profile of the just installed Tl. We did not find any created via
(Win 64-bit, at the very end the installer mentioned an existing MikTeX
installation, don't know if that is relevant)
