.ins and .dtx are source files, they are usually sorted into the source subtree of a TDS tree (texmf/source/latex/babel/babel.ins). The files in a TDS tree are organized in such a way, that source, documentation files are not searched, when TeX looks for its input/package/class files. This reduces the search space and makes file look-up faster. But on the ...

You have to download the files and move them to the folders they belong to. Usually, package writers prepare the needed directory structure, but in this case, unfortunatelu not. If you just want to use the theme, copy the package files found in the theme folder to your working directory. This is the shortcut for now, but if you want to use the theme over ...

I was lead here by a search for how to install a Beamer theme (also an .sty file). For those who are inexperienced with adjusting TeX installations, as I am, the excellent answer in the addendum above was confusing. The directory listed in the addendum above didn't exist. It took a while to sort things out, so perhaps another can benefit. I started from a ...

There is no need for installing texlive as root. It makes sense to set the owner of the texlive to the user: sudo chown -R <username>.users /usr/local/texlive Then you can run all <command>-sys as a default user.

It would probably be best to think about updating to the latest version of TeX Live. However, if you are not currently able to upgrade, you can follow these steps to install the fonts: Disable the map file: updmap-sys --disable newtxtt.map Remove all traces of the packages left over from earlier manual installation attempts. Download the TDS archive as ...

In cmd type mpm --verify=mathtools that will tell if mathtools is installed, not installed or unknown. If mathtools is not installed: in cmd type mpm --install=mathtools to install mathtools. If mathtools is unknown: in cmd type mpm --find-updates or mpm --update-db and then install. Alternative: in cmd type mpm to start MiKTeX Package Manager then ...

I am using a quick fix to this issue since I work mainly on a USB stick and don't want to touch to the tex folders the computers I am using. Indeed, you can specify backward directories to \usepackage, then you don't have to know the exact full path but only the relative path from your .tex to your .sty file. An example: given a portable hard disk D, I ...

I had a similar issue when I upgraded to Mavericks and then again to Yosemite. I found that the /usr/ folder had an alias for /texbin but that alias did not lead anywhere. This was resolved by allowing Read Only access to the local folder in usr for my user account. Perhaps the following would help: Try going to /usr/ using Shift + ⌘ + G in Finder and ...

with the help received from this cite, I was able to solve the problem. Place '*.cls' in one of the folders where other *.cls files are located. E.g., I put 'asl.cls' to 'C:\Program Files\MiKTeX 2.9\tex\latex\amscls' Run MikTeX 2.9 -> Maintenance (Admin) -> Package Manager (Admin) That's it! Thank you all who helped. Paul

If you want to create a TeX Live package, you need to do the following steps. I assume here that you are not shipping any binaries, but only files in a the texmf hierarchy. Also assume that the package is called foo: prepare a TDS tree of the package, say in foo, that is, you have foo/tex, foo/fonts etc. write a tlpobj file in foo/tlpkg/tlpobj/foo.tlpobj ...

You need to create the directory TEXMFHOME. That is, in your case, you need to create ~/Library/texmf and any subdirectories which you need below it. For example, if you wanted to install greatpackage.sty, you would create a directory ~/Library/texmf/tex/latex/greatpackage to contain it. ~/Library/texlive/2014/texmf-var is for auto-generated files. You can ...
