I'm having some problems using latex. I removed everything and then
reinstalled from scratch. After it installs the latex executable is
located in /usr/lib/texmf/bin/i586-linux/. When I execute I get the

/usr/lib/texmf/bin/i586-linux/latex file.tex
This is pdfTeX, Version 3.141592-1.40.3 (Web2C 7.5.6)
kpathsea: Running mktexfmt latex.fmt
fmtutil: format directory `/var/lib/texmf/web2c' is not writable.
I can't find the format file `latex.fmt'!

I did run texhash (as superuser) but it didn't fix anything. Anyone
has any idea what the problem could be?
