TypeTeX distribution

teTeX was a TeX distribution for Unix-like systems. As of May 2006, teTeX is no longer actively maintained and its former maintainer Thomas Esser recommended TeX Live as the replacement.[1]

The teTeX package is available as a package for system architectures:[2]

Thomas Esser maintained teTeX from 1994 until May, 2006.[3] According to Esser, the time taken to package each successive release took longer than the previous.[4] It has been superseded by TeX Live, a “comprehensive TeX system for most types of Unix, including GNU/Linux and Mac OS X, and also Windows”.[5] The goals of the teTeX project were to be easy, use free software, be well-documented, avoiding bugs along the way.
