I tried compiling a file that uses the fancytooltips package, according to Gonzalo Medina's answer at Showing the bibliographic entry in a popup when you hover over the citation key. And it cannot find some .sty files. How can I fix it? I'm on Ubuntu and compiling on command line using pdflatex.

@cmhughes Ah thanks, I'm installing TexLive right now. –  Mika H. Apr 6 '13 at 0:17
    
What does kpsewhich biblatex.sty return? –  jon Apr 6 '13 at 0:58
    
@jon Ah, looks like it's able to find biblatex.sty now. kpsewhich biblatex.sty /usr/local/texlive/2012/texmf-dist/tex/latex/biblatex/biblatex.sty –  Mika H. Apr 6 '13 at 0:59
    
OK, so it is 'findable'. Can you post a minimal example file that fails with the error you describe. Something like \documentclass{article}\usepackage{biblatex}\begin{document}test\end{document} should do the trick.... –  jon Apr 6 '13 at 1:08
