# moderncv error: tweaklist.sty

I can't get moderncv to work. I get the error:

! LaTex Error: File 'tweaklist.sty' not found.


What I've done so far is manually install moderncv in my texmf tree (/usr/local/texlive/2008/texmf-dist/tex/latex/moderncv)

tweaklist.sty is in this directory, but when I run

\documentclass{moderncv}
\begin{document}
;lakdjfl
\end{document}


it gives the aforementioned error

• Did u update the name database etc.? I'm not sure how to do this for texlive but there should be an option somewhere.You always have to do this after installing a new package. – Mythio Jun 6 '13 at 13:52
• Why do you work with such an outdated version of TeX Live? I really recommend an update of your TeX distribution. Perhaps the newest version TeX Live 2013 ;-) tug.org/texlive/pretest.html – Marco Daniel Jun 6 '13 at 13:53
• Try kpsewhich moderncv.cls and check whether TeX does indeed use the version you installed. Then try kpsewhich tweaklist.sty, and if any don't give the desired result, run texhash. – Xavier Jun 6 '13 at 16:42
• I would ditch tweaklist and use enumitem instead – cmhughes Jun 6 '13 at 19:02
• @MarcoDaniel I installed the 2013 version of tex live. it is now in the same folder as the 2008 version. when I run my code in texshop it still uses the 2008 version. how can I change the path that is being used? – jelle Jun 27 '13 at 12:28
