Bug Description

Ubuntu 12.04
TexLive 2014

I got hit by this one just after removing my ubuntu-installed texlive, emptying my texmf, installing texlive 2014, and running the god's gift pkgs/install-pkgs.sh.

Found my answer at https://answers.launchpad.net/ubuntu-manual/+question/249726 but it would be great if the script could inform me that cc-icons is missing and that I should do as https://answers.launchpad.net/ubuntu-manual/+question/249726 says.

Thanks.

The install-pkgs.sh script should already check to see if the CC Icons font is installed and, if it's not, install it.

If you still have the install-pkgs.log file, could you attach it to this report, please?

Unfortunately, I don't have the log anymore. Could the script have
failed because I didn't have a ~/.fonts directory at the time?

In case relevant, I have a standard up-to-date ubuntu 12.04
installation. I believe I had used either the saucy, trusty, or
main[1] branch at the time.

[1] By main branch, I mean lp:ubuntu-manual rather than
lp:ubuntu-manual/saucy etc

I don't think the script has changed much (if at all) between trusty and saucy.

That did not happen in my case, I remember having to create the
directory and wondering why I didn't already have one.

Strange. Well, it seems difficult to troubleshoot at the moment, but if it arises again I'll check into it.
