I have now installed the tetex3.0 from the sunfreeware.com. I wanted to see
if it is working then I looked for a sample .tex file to check if everything
is okay.

I run tex sample.tex

Then the exact error is as follows;


This is TeX, Version 3.141592 (Web2C 7.5.4)
! Undefined control sequence
l.46 \document class
!Undefined control sequence
1.47 \usepackage


I just wondering maybe there is a problem with the .tex file I have test
from the path /usr/local/share/texmf-dist/doc/latex/index

May I request from you guys a short sample TeX or LaTeX just for 5 to lines
lines only to see whether TeX/LaTeX is working. I would appreciate for any

  Did you do what is in the QuickInstall link given in the teTex listing on


  the files are in /usr/local/teTeX/share

  and subdirectories.  The software works since I have had reports from
users who
  have succeeded in installing and using the package and I use it as well.

    Dear Sir,

    As per your advise I have manage to download and install the package
from Sunfreeware  I just wonder why is it before I am having problems.
Anyway, I would like to ask how can I run or execute Latex because it seems
that the path are different on the install guide. Below are the path where
it was installed by using the pkgadd command.

    latex.fmt = /usr/local/share/texmf-var/web2c
    pdflatex.fmt = /usr/local/share/texmf-var/web2c
    latex.ltx = /usr/local/texmf-dist/tex/latex/base
    mf.base = /usr/local/share/texmf-var/web2c
