How do I install psfig.sty in MacTeX?

I just installed MacTeX, and I'm trying to compile a document, but I get the following error:

``````! LaTeX Error: File `psfig.sty' not found.
``````

The preamble is as follows:

``````\documentclass[12pt]{article}
\usepackage{psfig}
\usepackage{subfigure}
\usepackage{rotating}
\usepackage{fullpage}
\usepackage{setspace}
%\singlespacing
%\onehalfspacing
\doublespacing
\usepackage{mathptm}
\usepackage{amsmath}
%\usepackage{cite}
\usepackage{bibentry}
\usepackage{fancyhdr}
``````

I tried updating everything using TeX Live Utility, but that didn't fix it.

Where can I find `psfig.sty` and how do I install it?

`psfig` is a very obsolete package. Use `graphicx` –  egreg May 5 '12 at 17:21
Further to @egreg's comment: Rather use `\usepackage{graphicx}` and then use `\includegraphics{file}`. `graphicx` searches for the appropriate file extension (`.pdf`, `.eps`, ...) and if you're using `pdflatex`, conversion from PS to EPS should be automated. –  Werner May 5 '12 at 19:03
Thank you both! How do I close out this question? –  Mark Richman May 5 '12 at 20:51

To allow this question to be closed, I'll wrap up the above comments by egreg and Werner into a short answer.

`psfig` is an obsolete package that should not be used anymore. Instead, use `graphicx`. This allows you to insert an external file `name.ext` by using the command `\includegraphics{name}` where `.ext` is automatically appended from a list of appropriate file extensions, such as `.pdf`, `.eps`, `.png`, `.jpg`, … The exact list of extensions depends (a) on your driver (e.g., pdftex) and (b) on the manually selected list of extensions specified by `\ DeclareGraphicsExtensions{…}`. Read more about `graphicx` here: http://en.wikibooks.org/wiki/LaTeX/Importing_Graphics

It may be obsolete, but the OP was asking how to deal with a document that uses this package. So saying "don't use it" is not a good answer. –  Leopd Oct 11 '12 at 18:29

I solved a similar problem

``````! LaTeX Error: File `psfig.tex' not found.
``````

by downloading the file `psfig.tex` from here and putting it in the same directory as the file I was converting. Then the formatting worked fine.

Hope this helps.

The default package repository is available from CTAN. –  Werner Oct 11 '12 at 18:38
@werner: yes, and the ctan catalogue says it's non-free (nosell, in this case). that's why it's not in tex live, and consequently not in mactex. –  wasteofspace Oct 11 '12 at 18:49
@lockstep, psfig.tex must be renamed to psfig.sty then it works fine. –  Arash Toudeshki Apr 12 '13 at 15:25
