BasicTeX 2012

I just upgraded to BasicTeX 2012, and here’s a quick synopsis of the steps:

  1. tlmgr uninstall
  2. download and install the current BasicTeX package from
  3. update PATH environment variable to include the current install location: /usr/local/texlive/2012basic/bin/universal-darwin
  4. tlmgr update --self
  5. tlmgr update --all
  6. tlmgr install collection-fontsrecommended
  7. tlmgr install subfigure
  8. tlmgr install exam

The Exam package is new (chalk it up to the new job), and the impetus for the updated install. The rest of the steps are really based on my previous TeX posts: here and here.
