I am new to using LaTeX, I have not figured out how to properly install a package yet. I believe this is my issue, if someone could help guide me through the proper way of doing so I would appreciate it. Even though I grew up with computers, I act like someone one from the 1940's when using them. I know some basic techniques, but a lot of the stuff advanced users might consider trivial is non-trivial to me.
I run a MacBook Pro 2012 with Snow Leopard OS.
I installed LaTeX using macports on my machine from the terminal. I also downloaded Texmaker editor and use that to write my documents.
I looked on this website and it says you should install packages in
~/Library/texmf/tex/latex. Which I am guessing the
I checked my finder and this is all I found;
I also found these:
I can't find the
vennpackage folder anywhere, but Tex Live Utility says its installed.
Steps I have performed:
I have installed
texlive-math-extrapackage from macports, this is where I originally found the package. It did not work, so I tried installing TeX Live full, which I think a friend of mine did for me a while back.
I figure the files will overwrite themselves and all will be good, or at least I hoped. Nothing happened, all my previous documents run fine.
I became a little braver and downloaded
venndiagram.styand followed the instructions given to me. I actually got the file to work but only on my desktop. So it only works when I save files on my desktop, not with my TeXmaker editor which saves the files somewhere else.
So now I am I hoping someone can point me in the right direction.
