Install TikZ/PGF and PGFPlots on Ubuntu

In howto on Feb 8, 2016 by theoryl Tagged: , , , , , ,

The installation of TikZ/PGF and PGFPlots on Ubuntu-based distros is mostly straight forward. First, download the latest TDS releases from http://pgf.sourceforge.net/ and http://pgfplots.sourceforge.net/. They are pgf_3.0.1.tds.zip and pgfplots_1.13.tds.zip at the time of writing. Create the directory ~/texmf if it doesn’t exist. Unzip the zip files into ~/texmf:

unzip -d ~/texmf pgf_3.0.1.tds.zip
unzip -d ~/texmf pgfplots_1.13.tds.zip

That’s it!
