I have just installed BasicTeX on OSX 10.5 and I'm trying to locate the
texmf directory to copy the
.sty files) folder into.
According to the install log the location should be
~/Library/texmf, but this folder does not exist.
So where are the packages stored on OSX?
llncs package is not in the usual repositories so it cannot be installed with any of the package-management tools. On the Windows machine at work I use MikTeX and installed the package manually by copying it to the
texmf directory and updating the DB as explained in How can I manually install a package on MiKTeX (Windows).
