! LaTeX Error: File chronology.sty' not found

I'm trying to make a time-line using the chronology package, but get the error:

! LaTeX Error: File chronology.sty' not found.


Here's what I have, using an example I found on StackOverflow:

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage{chronology}
\begin{document}
\begin{chronology}[5]{1983}{2010}{3ex}{\textwidth}
\event{1984}{one}
\event[1985]{1986}{two}
\event{\decimaldate{25}{12}{2001}}{three}
\end{chronology}
\end{document}


I can find the chronology file in the MiKTeX Package Manager, but I don't have the option to install it (neither do I have the option to uninstall it for that matter).

• Works fine for me in a current miktex. Did you start the package manager in admin or in user mode? Which miktex version do you have? – Ulrike Fischer Mar 7 '13 at 15:07
• @UlrikeFischer I'm using it in user mode as I'm on a university computer. I'm using MiKTeX 2.9. – Danger Fourpence Mar 7 '13 at 16:38
• Try if it helps if you synchronize (or even change) the repository (menu "Repository" in the manager). – Ulrike Fischer Mar 7 '13 at 16:53

The easiest and quickest solution is to find chronology.sty` online and put it in the working directory with your document. Obviously this is not a long-term (or elegant) solution, but should work. A copy is available at:
