Tips on insalling Latex Packages in TexLive

I usually just stop at texhash. I’ve run into trouble with fonts before and the fix wa udpmap-sys, but I did not realize that is part of a general recipe for Latex packages. In Lyx help list, Gunter recommended:

This looks like a manual install. Some REAME files are not up-to date.
My receipe is

1. copy to /usr/local/share/texmf/….
2. `mktexlsr` or `texhash`
3. create /etc/texmf/updmap.d/42*.conf with
Map *.map Datei
(see existing dvips/config/config.* or *.conf files)
4. `update-updmap`
5. `updmap-sys`
