I just got a latex document with siamltex document class from my collaborator. Is this document class packaged in Debian Linux?

The Debian package contents search page indicates it's not available in the official repositories. But there shouldn't be any problem with getting the .zip file from their author info page and extracting it into a folder in your home directory where you'll write your document, or else extracting it into your personal texmf tree. –  Mike Renfro Oct 14 '11 at 11:29
    
@MikeRenfro, thanks for your answer. If you paste it as a proper answer I will accept it. Could you also paste where is my personal texmf tree id Debian (for completeness)? –  Grzenio Oct 14 '11 at 12:49

The Debian package contents search page indicates it's not available in the official repositories. But there shouldn't be any problem with getting the .zip file from their author info page and extracting it into a folder in your home directory where you'll write your document, or else extracting it into your personal texmf tree. That is, extracting siamltex.cls, siamltex.sty, and related files into the folder $HOME/texmf/tex/latex/siamltex:
