Well, it seems to fail trying to obtain some of the packages with

  cannot setup TLPDB in /home/jonathan/texmf at /usr/bin/tlmgr line 5300

2013.  To be specific:

  dpkg-query -s texlive-base |grep ^Version


  Version: 2013.20130530-1

I've fixed up the script to handle that now, and to only do the check
for tlmgr for "upstream" if the checks for each of the texlive Ubuntu
packages fail.  That, and removing the ttf-thai-tlwg font seems to be
getting me close to a working install process... I'll know more when it
completes :)
