Newbie here, just inherited a large (250+ page) doc written in LaTeX after the previous author left the company. Is there an easy way to determine all the LaTeX packages installed on my system? I'm using Ubuntu 12.10 as a workstation and I installed texlive-full and a couple other packages when I was initially trying out LaTeX.
I got a list of the packages that the project uses from the .tex file, so I know which packages I need. But it seems like there are multiple places on my system where packages were installed, so I'm having problems figuring out if the necessary packages are all there. Is it possible to get a full list of all LaTeX packages installed? Or even a list of all locations where the packages are stored would be enough. It seems like there are packages installed in multiple locations across my system, so I can't just simply look under the texmf folder.
Before I start installing the additional packages from CTAN, I'd really like to make sure I'm not duplicating any of them...
Apologies for what I'm sure is a silly question, but I looked and looked online for an answer and wasn't able to dig up anything. Your help is greatly appreciated in maintaining my sanity here. :)
