This manual page documents briefly the update-texmf-config command. This manual page was written for the Debian GNU/Linux distribution because the original script was designed for Debian packaging system.

update-texmf-config is a shell script that is called from maintainer scripts shipping new map files, hyphenation patterns, or any other TeX input file.

The script simply activates the respective trigger, namely texmf-map for font map files, texmf-hyphen for hyphenation patterns, and texmf-lsr for updates to the lsr database. All the necessary action will then be carried out by the tex-common package.



Activate the texmf-map trigger.


Activate the texmf-hyphen trigger.


Activate the texmf-lsr trigger.
