    Code:
    sudo cp -rp /etc/texmf.old /etc/texmf
    Then you can proceed with BDQ's suggestion in post #39.
    I think it does not change the output

    Code:
    sudo cp -rp /etc/texmf.old /etc/texmf
    bekirsalgin@bekirsalgin:~$ sudo dpkg -S /etc/texmf/texmf.d/05TeXMF.cnf
    dpkg-query: no path found matching pattern /etc/texmf/texmf.d/05TeXMF.cnf.

    Re: TeXworks: package operation failed

    Apparently that file is required, and is missing-> gotta find the package that the file belongs to.
    let's approach location from the top rather than the bottom, see what results:
    Code:
    dpkg -L tex-common
    if that also fails I suugest we use apt-file utility:
    Code:
    sudo apt-get install apt-file
    sudo apt-file update
    apt-file search /etc/texmf/texmf.d/05TeXMF.cnf
    which will search for a potentially uninstalled package providing a certain file.

    Not at all certain what will result from the above, what else can we do to identify the package ?
    keep swimming 'till we make butter <== BDQ

    How do we get sure whether it worked or not?

    Re: TeXworks: package operation failed

    I am at this time not sure how to proceed. The file that I expect to be in the /etc/ directory appears to exist in the /share/ directory ! Is this a bug ? If so why are not others having a problem ?

    I do not know what effect it would have if the desired file were to be moved to the referenced directory.

    As such -> Let's look at what "apt-file" tells us. See if we can gain more info before proceeding.

    Now, wiser heads my prevail ==> BDQ

    Re: TeXworks: package operation failed

    Could it be helpful to install TeXLive from http://www.tug.org?

    Re: TeXworks: package operation failed

    I may be in error, But I do not think you can install another version of texworks without removing the current one...

    we still go round and round trying to remove and or (re)install that sucker, over a config file ?

    Re: TeXworks: package operation failed

    I suggest to install TeXLive (the binaries?), not the TeXWorks. What do you think?

    Re: TeXworks: package operation failed

    well... might be a possibility, if what you have in mind is to extract that missing config file, in theory, should work. (best if the versions are the same) I am interested in participating in the process.
    Just be aware we have no confirmation that the 05TeXMF.cnf config file does belong in the /etc/ directory...but one error definitely points that way.
