I want to put chess diagrams in a LaTeX file, and from what I can tell http://www.ctan.org/tex-archive/fonts/chess/skak/ is the best way to do this. Unfortunately, I can't figure out how to install the package. skakdoc.pdf gives you these directions:
Basically all you have to do is to follow the guidelines in the makefile. First you create all the required directories (stated in the install section of the makefile) and then you run the
make install command.
The install section of the makefile says this:
install: fonts doc install skak*.600pk $(DESTPK) install skak*.600gf $(DESTGF) install skak*.tfm $(DESTTFM) install mf/skak*.mf $(DESTSOURCE) install tex/skak.sty $(INPUTS) install tex/lambda.sty $(INPUTS) install *.ps $(DESTDOC) @echo "Remember to run texhash!"
I have no idea how to follow these instructions. Help?
