Re: Lubuntu Manual PDF can now be built


Hi Jonathon,

What I did was comment out the portions that set up bzr and installed
the texlive packages. After sending the email, I did a diff of the
files, and there were no differences between the saucy versions (and as
you mentioned, the texlive-pictures was the only difference between the
raring one and yours). I ran the install-pkgs.sh script manually and
everything checked out. 

I'll just chock it up to Murphy's Law or Schultz's Law and call it good.
I built the manual and it worked fine.

Have a great day.:)
