Hi I tried to install the package by

tlmgr install dsfont

but I only get

tlmgr: package repository http://ftp.gwdg.de/pub/ctan/systems/texlive/tlnet
package dsfont not present in package repository.

I also installed the package doublestroke since I read somewhere that this package contains dsfont, but if I include dsfont I still get an error message..

Does anyone know how to help me?

On Debian based TeX distribution you can try

sudo apt-get install texlive-fonts-extra

Welcome to TeX.SX! You can have a look at our starter guide to familiarize yourself further with our format. Addendum: package doublestroke would be installed with this tweak which has dsfont –  texenthusiast Nov 19 '13 at 18:44
