Description of problem: LaTeX documents which require the "lato.sty" font cannot build against RHEL7 texlive distribution
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): 7.4
How reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install RHEL7.4 (or CentOS 7.4) with EPEL to be extra certain that the packages truly are missing altogether.
2. yum provides */lato.sty */slantsc.sty
No matches found
Expected results: (Pasted from Fedora 26; actual package names would be different)
texlive-lato-6:svn24986.2.2-33.fc26.2.noarch : Lato font family and LaTeX support
Repo : fedora
texlive-slantsc-6:svn25007.2.11-33.fc26.2.noarch : Access different-shaped small-caps fonts
Repo : fedora
Verified against CentOS 7.4 with EPEL and against my organization's RHEL7 satellite (which may or may not be identical to canonical RHEL7) with EPEL.
texlive-slantsc is only listed here because in F26 it is listed as a dependency for texlive-lato.
Other missing LaTeX packages have been identified here; this report is being treated as a prototype. If there is a better way to collect/report differences between Fedora TeX Live and RHEL TeX Live please explain so that the next reports will be of higher quality. Unless a suggestion is made to the contrary, I'll try to report distinct dependency chains separately.
We don't intent to add new packages into rhel-update due to high risk on dependencies. For this Reason we created an new package texlive-extension in EPEL7 which should include the missing packages.
There's an new texlive-extension-2012-55 which now includes the missing texlive-lato and texlive-slantsc.
I will push it to epel7 update today. If you don't want to wait for new version in epel7-update, please download it from above url and install the missing packages
Please let me know if it works for you.
texlive-extension-2012-55.el7 has been submitted as an update to Fedora EPEL 7. https://bodhi.fedoraproject.org/updates/FEDORA-EPEL-2017-e1792be2f4
Thanks so much, Ngo; this is not what I expected but it seems a perfectly reasonable approach. Unfortunately I don't think I understand fully how texlive-extension is supposed to be acquired and used; I don't see any versions, new or old, in the existing repositories:
Am I looking in the wrong place, or is this an entirely new package?
Actually, I think you can disregard the previous for now; I do see it at
I need to do a bit more research to verify my initial tests from CentOS/RHEL.
texlive-extension-2012-55.el7 has been pushed to the Fedora EPEL 7 testing repository. If problems still persist, please make note of it in this bug report.

Thanks again, Ngo. I think I understand now how the process works; the texlive-extension source package appears to produce a series of RPMs which are actually named according to the established convention. I downloaded and installed the resulting texlive-lato and texlive-slantsc, and they do solve my problem.
To be clear, for the next few such packages, should I submit against EPEL7 or RHEL7?
Hi Phil, please submit against EPEL7
texlive-extension-2012-55.el7 has been pushed to the Fedora EPEL 7 stable repository. If problems still persist, please make note of it in this bug report.
