This question already has an answer here:

I am looking to utilize the eqexam package, yet even after putting the .sty files in my /usr/local/texlive/2012/texmf-dist/tex/latex directory with the appropriate /eqexam folder . I am still unable to compile the demo file that came with the package. I have included a MWE of the test file below.

I still get the error that eqexam.sty not found. I have searched all over the internet for a solution, but no one seems to be in agreement on the answers.

Running Mac OS X 10.6.8, originally used MacTex distribution with TexLive2012, but am now compiling with ST2 and Skim (which has worked wonders over texshop). I could list my suspicions, but that might be a waste of time. I also understand that this might not be enough information to problematize a solution, but I have hopes.

I suppose that there will not be a solution to this, but might there be better resources than the eqexam documentation and website that can take me through the complexities of the installation?

Solve each of the problems without error. If you make an error,
points will be subtracted from your total score.

This is an example of a objective question, the student fills in
his/her response in the space below.

The solution to the question. This solution will not appear when
the option \texttt{nosolutions} is specified. It will appear
immediately after the question with the \texttt{solutionsafter}
option, and appear at the end of the document if a solutions
option is not specified.

An example of a fill-in question:
It is well known that \fillin{1in}{Newton} and
\fillin{1in}{Leibniz} are jointly credited as the founders of
modern calculus.

It is well known that \underbar{Newton} and \underbar{Leibniz} are
jointly credited as the founders of modern calculus.

\medskip\noindent\textbf{Notes.} Here the optional argument for
the \texttt{solution} environment is not specified, this implies
that no room should be left for the student to answer, seems
reasonable since this is a fill-in.

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

  • Did you run sudo mktexlsr for changes to take effect? It works for me under Debian. – aitatanit Jun 15 '13 at 4:43
  • Can I run that from any folder, or a specific folder? My terminal outputs this: sudo: mktexlsr: command not found – Calhistorian Jun 15 '13 at 4:47
  • I'm not sure how it works on OSX but your TeX distro needs to rebuild its database of installed packages. The temporary fix is to put the sty file in your local folder that contains the source Tex files, that should work afaik. – aitatanit Jun 15 '13 at 5:28

  • That was it! Thanks @aitatanit ! It turns out that the directories my build was looking for didn't even exist. And that I had /texmf directories, but not in the correct location. The link and the answer provided worked wonders. – Calhistorian Jun 15 '13 at 14:59
