The only thing I change in that script is the line that tries to install
texlive-latex-pictures instead of texlive-pictures.  Otherwise, I am
running the install-pkgs.sh script from the lp:ubuntu-manual repository
(i.e. the one for saucy, the current default branch).

Can you diff the two install-pkgs.sh files (one in
~/Projects/lubuntu-manual-saucy and one in
~/Projects/ubuntu-manual-raring) , and let us know how they differ?

I'll try it myself here too, and see if I can find the difference.

Incidentally, having a ~/Projects directory does not need any script
tweaking, you just need to provide the working directory name as the
first parameter to the script if you don't like my default of ~/projects :)

The script is not intended for folks who already know enough to
successfully install an unpackaged texlive, so you probably will need to
hack it slightly to deal with that.

It's an interesting bug, and we'll definitely look at it, but if you
already have bzr and texlive all set up and working already, and like
using ~/Projects , instead of running my lubuntu-manual-dev.sh script,
just do

  cd ~/Projects
  bzr branch lp:~ubuntu-manual/ubuntu-manual/lubuntu-manual-saucy

and you should be all set :)
