This manual page documents briefly the update-texmf command. This manual 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/web2c/texmf.cnf from files in /etc/texmf/texmf.d/*.cnf

A user who wants to customize /etc/texmf/web2c/texmf.cnf should add, for example, 22mymacro.cnf in /etc/texmf/texmf.d/ and run ’update-texmf’.


-v, --verbose

Show verbose messages.

-d, --debug

Show debugging information, and don’t delete temporary files. Implies --verbose.
