*** Install ***

Notes for Xenial: Backported texlive-bin is built against various backported libraries for Xenial. So for installation of TeX 2019 do these steps first:

  sudo add-apt-repository ppa:savoury1/backports
  sudo add-apt-repository ppa:savoury1/tex-2019
  sudo apt-get update

Additionally, Texmaker, TeXstudio, and TeXworks all require Qt >= 5.7 (Xenial ships with 5.5.1). Using backported Qt 5.9.5 from Bionic works fine for these three programs, so you can do these steps first for installation on Xenial:

  sudo add-apt-repository ppa:savoury1/qt-xenial
  sudo apt-get update
  sudo apt-get upgrade && sudo apt-get dist-upgrade
