Ubuntu repo for 22.04?

I don’t see a repo for Ubuntu 22.04 (codename jammy) listed here: http://ftp.texmacs.org/TeXmacs/tmftp/repos/apt/dists/.

How can I configure automatic Texmacs updates in Ubuntu 22.04?

As far as I know (but I may be wrong) the TeXmacs repo for each Ubuntu update comes a bit delayed WRT the update. Myself, I am using the packages … but I do not know why the TeXMacs which I have, which (I assume) is installed with the package for 21.10 (the latest distributions supported today at http://www.texmacs.org/tmweb/download/linux-packages.en.html#ubuntu), is working now with 22.04 :slight_smile:

Ok thanks. I’ll try that package then.

Are you getting automatic updates?

Edit: By downloading that .deb package and installing, I don’t get any launchers (I had to run texmacs from the command line). Do you how I can get a launcher?

I think you have to write one for yourself:
in ~/.local/share/applications I have a texmacs.desktop file with the following content

[Desktop Entry]
Name=GNU TeXmacs
GenericName=Text Editor
Comment=A structured wysiwyg scientific text editor

As far as I understand the icon will be picked up, and the program will be launched if the texmacs command exists in your shell.

I do not know what the X-KDE-Priority entry means, but you might try it as it is and see if it works—please let me know.


I am trying to install Texmacs on Ubuntu 22.04, but I haven’t succeeded yet. Could someone here advise on how to proceed?
Many thanks in advance,


Hi @lclaire and welcome to the forum.

What did you try?

I myself installed the static binary.

Looking forward to your answer.

@pjoyez Is it easy to include a build for Ubuntu 22.04 in your repo? Thanks.

Hi @pireddag!

I tried downloading a ready-to-install package from here: https://www.texmacs.org/tmweb/download/linux-packages.en.html#ubuntu. I choose the latest one

[TeXmacs package for xUbuntu_21.10 with a 64 bits Intel/AMD processor](https://www.texmacs.org/Download/ftp/tmftp/Linux/ubuntu2110/TeXmacs-2.1.1.amd64.deb)

I then from the download folder I run

sudo apt-get install TeXmacs-2.1.1.amd64.deb

I get the following error message:

Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree... Done
Reading state information... Done
E: Unable to locate package TeXmacs-2.1.1.amd64.deb
E: Couldn't find any package by glob 'TeXmacs-2.1.1.amd64.deb'
E: Couldn't find any package by regex 'TeXmacs-2.1.1.amd64.deb'

Thank you in advance for your help with this.


It is not correct to install a build for another version of Ubuntu. For the moment, you can use the AppImage version by pjoyez.

thanks @re4zuaFe, which one should I use, the texmacs-latest-x86_64?

The AppImage file. There are two, but I think that latest is simply a symbolic link to the latest version, so they should be the same here.

Mogan Research is one of the GNU TeXmacs distribution.

You may install Mogan Research on Ubuntu 22.04 via https://mogan.app/guide/Install.html

I just released Mogan Research v1.2.0 (it is based on GNU TeXmacs 2.1.2)
