I decided to move from Ubuntu 8.10 to Ubuntu 9.04. Apart from some video
problems, I've got problems with my TeXLive 2008 installation. I have the
following questions, I somebody my be so kind as to hint me with them:

   1. *Where do I tell XeTeX to find the fonts? *I created a .fonts
   directory, where I put all my OTFs. Buy I don't remember in which conf file
   I tell XeTeX to look for them. (In my previous installation all worked
   2. *How can I fool Ubuntu to acknowledge TL 2008 is installed?* With
   Ubuntu 8.10 I followed this instructions (
   for that (in particular, to install Kile without having to install TL 2007),
   but this isn't working at all with Ubuntu 9.04. I understand that Ubuntu
   switched to a new package
   3. Finally, does somebody know *why the Ubuntu repositories only
   distribute TexLive 2008*?! It's preposterous!

Best wishes!
