<x-flowed>>Hi all,

>So when I run texhash, this is what I get:
>[pushpa:~] cyril% texhash
>texhash: /sw/share/texmf: directory not writable. Skipping...
>texhash: Updating /var/tmp/texfonts/ls-R...
>texhash: Done.
>which is not what I want, of course.
>man texhash is not helpful at all.

when required (assuming you have admin privileges).
