Error of a program interfering with other installations

Asked By 30 points N/A Posted on -

Hi all,

This program is often interfering with other installations.


Whenever I install something, I get the following error message, which obviously is no good!

An error occurred
The following details are provided:

E: miktex-tools: subprocess installed post-installation script returned error exit status 1



Is there a way I can make this go away?

Waiting for your response.

Thank you all.

Error of a program interfering with other installations


Hello Mary,

The reason why you are getting that error is because of the package manager you are using.

You should therefore run the installation through a proper package manager as much as possible so that all the files will automatically go to the right places.

When you use the right package manager also, the files will be updates automatically when a new version is released.

A package I will recommend is Sistyle, which you can find in the texlive-science package in synaptic.

All you will need to do is click so as to run the package installation and then it will go into the right directories by itself.

Hope this helps.
