Many thanks!

Norbert, do you think we should open a squeeze branch of tex-common
to have that translation in the release?

Can you transplant the X hierarchy somewhere else? I suspect not.

Can you move /usr/share/gnome-* somewhere else? I suspect not.

I am not sure if we actually want that. I don't see any advantage
in that. But please, go ahead. 

The only place that *might* be useful to be shifted around is
TEXMFSYSVAR ... anything else I don't want to be allowed to moved.

Best wishes

Norbert

I guess it is too late even for these kinds of things. I would keep
that for post release.

Other opinions?

I didn't check, but I suspect these packages don't even pretend this
would be possible.  We have a config file where things can be changed
and it may happen that people expect this can be done.

And yes: I don't see either a good reason to do so.

Happy new year to all, too!

Most significantly, the tex-common postinst is designed to handle the
installation of new files through the package maintenance system.  The
files in those packages will be installed into the standard places on
the system, and tex-common behaves accordingly:
/usr/share/texmf{,-texlive} and /var/lib/texmf are the directories
handled by packages, and therefore tex-common should use those same
directories.

If a sysadmin wished to change this, they would have to divert every
single package installation - I can imagine this being painful and
pointless....

Ho hum ....

mktexlsr call in other packages/updated dh_installtex?

Hi,

there is at least one package, which does call mktexlsr in postin w/o
argument, i.e. which would create /u/l/s/texmf/ls-R . We should file
bugs against these packages.

Further: do we need an updated dh_installtex? In the postins script
of tipa I found:

# Automatically added by dh_installtex
##
<snip>
dhit_create_fontmaps ()
{
    tempfile=$(mktemp -p /tmp updmap.XXXXXXXX)
    printf "Running updmap-sys. This may take some time... "
    if updmap-sys > $tempfile 2>&1 ; then
        rm -f $tempfile
        echo "done."

etc.

I withdraw my proposal.
I don't think being able to move trees is worth opening up the worms.

I think you can make yout patch cleaner
by replacing /var/lib/texmf with $TEXMFSYSVARDIR,
as this avoids new instances of hard-coded paths:
