TeX - LaTeX Stack Exchange is a question and answer site for users of TeX, LaTeX, ConTeXt, and related typesetting systems. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I found a similar answer but regarding a different distro and the solution did not work for me, so:

  • on an Ubuntu 13.04
  • I made yesterday (to say that it's clean & brand new) a complete network installation of texlive
  • afterwards I installed texstudio
  • I tried to compile a tex file using a cls that used environ.sty

-!- texstudio complain about not finding file environ.sty


  • if I try from a command line everything works fine
  • tlmgr -check all seems ok
  • tlmgr -files gives package environ as installed
  • kpsewhich environ.sty outputs /usr/local/texlive/2013/texmf-dist/tex/latex/environ/environ.sty

I am trying to convince a bunch of people around me to get rid of M$ stuff but I'm quite a newbie too in the world of the penguin, so please help me :)

Did you install another version TeX Live from Ubuntu software source? If two versions of TeX distribution are on the same computer, check which wersion is used by TeXstudio. –  Ch'en Meng Oct 24 '13 at 9:01
Ensure the paths in TeXStudio don't point to /usr/bin/pdflatex or similar, but to /usr/local/texlive/2013/bin/<arch>/pdflatex (where <arch> is the conventional name for the machine you're using). –  egreg Oct 24 '13 at 10:00
Welcome to TeX.SX! Usually, we don't put a greeting or a “thank you” in our posts. While this might seem strange at first, it is not a sign of lack of politeness, but rather part of our trying to keep everything very concise. Accepting and upvoting answers is the preferred way here to say “thank you” to users who helped you. A suggestion: Do us a favour and change your username to something more telling than "user38852". –  Martin Schröder Oct 24 '13 at 20:46
If you do this again on a fresh Ubuntu install, you might be interested in install-tl-ubuntu, which automates everything and makes it so Ubuntu doesn't install other texlive packages after installing TeX Live 2013 manually. –  scottkosty Oct 24 '13 at 22:38
