I just wanted to document how I installed TeX on my MacBook Air.
I grabbed and installed BasicTeX-2008 from the MacTeX folks.
TeX binaries were installed in:
So I added that directory to my path.
Next I updated the installed packages:
tlmgr update bin-texlive texlive.infra
tlmgr update --all
Since the ACM style file seems to need to more fonts, I installed the recommened font set:
tlmgr install collection-fontsrecommended
Also we’re apparently still using (the deprecated) subfigure.sty, so I installed that:
tlmgr install subfigure.
At this point I can build our most recent paper on the Air.
