Please add to your question which distribution you use (texlive, miktex, mactex, ...) – Martin H May 21 '12 at 14:44

As I couldnt instal packages from random package repository, I clicked on install from internet. But later on I instaled the packages and now I need to change the repository. Please tell me the path which should be browsed to change the repository – Vidhya May 21 '12 at 14:50

You can use the package manager for that. However, I would recommend you to update to MikTeX 2.9 if possible.

Then you can go to the Repository Menu and select Change Repository option.

After clicking next if you wish to have it updated from internet, you would get the list of available repositories.

Note that, an available repository can be offline temporarily such that you can't download packages or update them.

Sir.. from the second dialog box i need to select second option and i need the path to b browsed for that.. i don want it to be installed from net because i hav already installed package in my system – Vidhya May 21 '12 at 15:15
@Vidhya That's also a possibility. You can also use the MikTeX update option to access these menus. Is there any further difficulties that I didn't understand from your comments? – percusse May 21 '12 at 15:18

i used the package to right align the chapter but now the contents, list og figures etc also aligned right..i used \chapterfont{\raggedleft} code... – Vidhya May 21 '12 at 15:33
@Vidhya You should ask that as a new question with a minimum and compilable code such that others can have a look too. – percusse May 21 '12 at 16:02
