Sorry about the newbie question!!
As a background: I am running Texshop and sometimes Texmaker on OSX 10.9.2
I have used a package called leipzig over the last 2 years. As instructed I have saved it into
Everything worked well until I did an update of all the packages in TexUtility a week ago. Apparently the package comes now with the official distribution. although I cannot actually say whether or not it was installed on my system with this update for the first time or whether it was there before. anyway, I blamed update for the problems I got. So, I deleted the above mentioned folder believing the package would now be simply loaded from the place where all the other packages are stored. I believe this is here:
and indeed the
leipzig package is there.
but now I get an error telling me that
leipzig.tex is not found. although it is there. so, I copied the folder back to its original place (from the trash bin). but now it tells me that all the
\newcommand have been assigned already. This seems like it is loaded twice or from different places?
Can anybody help me with this? and maybe explain to me why the package won't load from the place where TexUtility updates/saves the files to?
My understanding is that the directory
is used for non-official packages (or the ones which I am tweaking on some way). is this the case? the other directory
is used for official packages. shouldn't Texmaker or Texshop find both? How are these kept apart?
Any suggested readings on this topic?
