I want to use lualatexfor compiling Latex document based on Luatex. I have installed those packages: luatex, texlive-binaries, texlive-luatex …but no lualatexbinary can be found. What did I miss?


You're looking for texlive-latex-base. Note that for answering questions like this, the "search the contents of packages" at the bottom of https://www.debian.org/distrib/packages can be quite helpful, in addition to local tools like apt-file

  • Great, thanks! Is there a command line alternative for the "search the contents…" ? Something like apt-cache search or does apt-filedoes this job? – smartmic Aug 3 '16 at 21:14
  • @smartmic apt-file search /usr/bin/lualatex should do it. At least once you've run apt-file update to download the lists. – derobert Aug 3 '16 at 21:16
