[tex-live] texhash not updating ls-R-TEXLIVEDIST

everything has been said, but once again:
* you have two TeX Live installations, one in /usr/local/texlive and one
  in /usr/bin, the former one installed by yourself, the later one 
  is the one shipped by Debian/Ubuntu.

* ls-R-TEXLIVEDIST is the one from Debian/Ubuntu, not the one in

* Your problem with TeX Maker is that you start it from the GUI
  (Desktop) and the PATH for the Desktop is not adapted to include
  /usr/local/texlive/2017/bin/x86_64-linux, thus it does not use
  the correct files.

Possible solutions (one of them):
* set up the PATH in /etc/profile.d/.... to include the correct one
  echo "PATH=/usr/local/texlive/2017/bin/x86_64-linux:$PATH" >> /etc/profile.d/texlive-path.sh
  echo "export PATH" >> /etc/profile.d/texlive-path.sh

* use the *same* directory for TEXMFLOCAL for both the Debian/Ubuntu TeX
  Live and the upstream by doing:
    echo "TEXMFLOCAL = /usr/local/share/texmf" >> /usr/local/texlive/2017/texmf.cnf
  NOTE that the directory 
  will NOT be searched anymore.

Hope that helps.
