We got a few sites that using texlive on their forums.
More specifically they use dvips binary, convert and latex

which latex is a symlink to
latex -> /usr/local/texlive/2011/bin/x86_64-linux/latex
dvips is also there
dvips -> /usr/local/texlive/2011/bin/x86_64-linux/dvips*

I tried to add in /usr/local/texlive
but those sites don\'t work when I will put them in cagefs.

Is there something else that I am missing to make it work under CageFS ? is now:

# You can add personal (individual) mounts for users, like below.
# Please, start line with \"@\" symbol, and then specify path and permissions (comma separated).
# These directories will be virtualized for each user.

Hi Christos!

You should create file /etc/cagefs/conf.d/latex.cfg with the following content:
paths=/usr/local/bin/dvips/usr/bin/convert, /usr/local/bin/latex

And then please execute
cagefsctl --update

You do not need to add any paths to /etc/cagefs/ file.
