I had the same problem, too. My system is Microsoft Windows 7, 64bits. I have tried to 1) download MikTeX from another repository, 2) reinstall it several times, 3) install 32bits version, 4) close all programs before installing in order to gain some memory etc, but the this problem persisted. Finally, I solved it as follows: 1) I installed the basic ...

The reason is that for each package there is first a try via ftp and LWP that fails, see: TLDownload::get_file: response error: 400 FTP return code 000 (for ftp://tug.org/historic/systems/texlive/2015/tlnet-final/archive/ms.source.tar.xz) TLUtils::download_file: persistent connection ok, but download failed: ftp://tug.org/historic/systems/texlive/2015/tlnet-...

Placing file to TeX directory (local or main) is not enough for TeX system to find it. TeXLive makes a list of files (not directories) which it can use, so you must first refresh database by texhash command, if TeX directory needs superuser permissions, then sudo texhash, because it makes changes in the directory, overwriting list of files.

There is a bug in current tlmgr (or at least two would be better) that returns an error during the action tlmgr path add. Thanks for the report, I will fix it (in due time). I have checked the source but didn't find any obvious bug, but I will eventually fix it as I see the same behaviour. Why on your side xindy.mem wasn't linked is strange, because in my ...

A similar yet a little bit different way than Alessandro Jacopson's answer is the following: Use the miktex setting (user and/or admin) program installed with the basic MikTex distribution to set "Install missing packages on-the-fly" to "Ask me first". Create a miktex local repository as in Alessandro Jacopson's answer, i.e., create a folder with ...

For the record, if you're using the TeXLive Utility GUI, you can also solve this issue by selecting the Configure > Configure Documentation..., checking the box labeled "Install documentation when updating", and confirming by clicking the Install now button. (I just ran into this issue after installing BasicTeX and the TeXLive Utility GUI on my Mac, by ...

To add cls package (like moderncv) in my OS distribution with texlive 2015, I just unzip package under /usr/local/texlive/2015basic/texmf-dist/tex/latex. Don't forget to run sudo texhash! Hope this help.

A basic installation of MiKTeX means that only a part of the complete MiKTeX Distribution is installed. If you need more there is an automatic way, that MiKTeX installs needed missing packages by its own (You have to activate this while installation). Of course you need then a running internet connection to get the missing packages loaded. That is the ...

We can only guess what have you got on your computer. There are at least two methods that should help. Find All programs -> MikTeX 2.9 -> Maintenance (Admin) -> Settings -> General -> Reresh FNDB. Copy xcolor.sty to the working path. The first one is more general, but if you quickly need only a few packages to use, the second method may be a temporary ...

The texlive-dummy packages on CTAN seem, unfortunately, not to include the source code. Thus, while they claim to be released under the LPPL, they are in practice difficult or impossible to modify. Since they are distribution specific and none is provided for Fedora as such, it isn't clear how well they might work in this case. To be honest, I had no idea ...

As daleif suggested, the package is on CTAN. It's called "texlive-dummy" (at least for RedHat-based distributions), and works like a charm.

How to put .sty and .cls Files where TexShop will find them: Personalised sty files are stored in ~/Library/texmf/tex/latex. The folder ~Library is a hidden folder. In Finder, click on your home folder in the Finder directory tree on the left hand panel of the Finder. Next, the hidden folders then need to be made visible. This is done from a terminal. The ...
