Re: texlive not set up for updates?

TeXLive runs OK for preparation of my manuscripts.  However, I'd like to

When I try to run tlmgr:

Can't locate TeXLive/ in @INC (@INC contains:
./../../texmf/scripts/texlive ./../../tlpkg
/usr/lib/perl5/5.14/i686-cygwin-threads-64int /usr/lib/perl5/5.14

/usr/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.8 .) at ./  line 81.
BEGIN failed--compilation aborted at ./  line 81.

I do see that these items were installed with the package:

% locate
% locate tlpkg

but the relative paths in seem to be incorrect.

Before editing the scripts, I'd like some input on what I should be
expecting from TeXLive under Cygwin.

tlmgr is a TeX Live package manager intended for use with native TeX Live, not for TeX Live that is packaged for a distribution like Cygwin (or any Linux distribution).

But all TeX Live packages should be available in the Cygwin distribution in one of the texlive-collection-* packages. You can search to find out which one.

In the case of the uspatent package, you won't find it because it was just added to TeX Live in September. But it's supposed to be in texlive-collection-publishers. I'll update the latter ASAP.

Let me know if you find any other missing packages.
