This page describes usage of tlptexlive with TeX Live 2014 (and 2013). If you want to use it with TeX Live 2012, please see tlptexliveリポジトリ−2012. This is not an offical TeX Live repository, but an add-on repository for distribution of programs not in TeX Live.

If binaries from this repository do not work on your system, please send Norbert Preining an email.


This repository provides additional programs that are not shipped with TeX Live and are of interest for Japanese TeX user, as well as updates to binaries where bugs are fixed.. Currently the following programs are included:

  • 日本語 MetaPost (pmetapost and upmetapost)
  • 日本語化された xdvi (pxdvi) (copied from 2012, building is currently impossible)

And binary updates to (e)ptex, (e)uptex, dvips, dvipdfmx (package ptex, uptex, dvips, dvipdfmx respectively) are provided for some architectures.

Further information on TeX Live in Japanese environment can bee seen from the following pages


  • Install TeX Live, see
  • add tlptexlive repository
    tlmgr repository add tlptexlive
  • specify that you want to get all packages available from tlptexlive
    tlmgr pinning add tlptexlive '*'
    (alternatively you can create/add a line to $TEXMFLOCAL/tlpkg/pinning.txt as follows: tlptexlive:*)
  • install pmetapost
    tlmgr install pmetapost
  • installation of pxdvi
    tlmgr install pxdvi pmetapost
    after this one additional step is necessary for correct operation: a link
    texmf/web2c/texmf.cnf -> ../../texmf-dist/web2c/texmf.cnf
    has to be created
  • install updates
    tlmgr update --all
  • if necessary configure dvipdfmx behaviour wrt to embedding of fonts (see below)

Please see for details.

Compiling binaries

If you want to help and you have an architecture available for building binaries that are not already built, or that are outdated, please read on!

The following script fetches the latest sources from the texlive repository (via rsync, so you need that), applies all patches, builds the binaries, and zips the necessary binaries up. The script can be downloaded from or .

It unpacks into a directory which contains a file README explaining what to do. In the simplest case just run

 bash build-ptexlive-binaries

and send me the created file /tmp/
