integrate standalone installation of tinytex with R

I am on a linux machine. I installed Tinytex on my $HOME/.Tinytex folder for general latex work. But I also want my R to use the same installation. Is there a way tell the R package manager to identify my directory?

Do you have the tinytex package installed? You will need that. Once you have it installed, you can use


to identify if and from where TinyTeX is used. If that comes up empty, you can use tinytex::use_tinytex() to register your TinyTeX installation.

This works! Does that mean I can also manage tinytex with R instead of tlmgr?

Yes, you can manage the TeX distribution TinyTeX using the tinytex R package instead of using the tlmgr command in a terminal.
