Note: I have already searched through this site on how to do this but a lot of the things explained make little to no sense to me, I am a novice at this stuff so I was wondering if could get a little more info.

I am using MiKTeX 2.9. I would love to be able to use the pgfornament package but I always get the following error:


C:/Users/Chase/Documents/LaTeX Files/ornament trial.tex:3: LaTeX Error: File `pgfornament.sty' not found.

Is there a simple way to remedy this? I found a couple things about a "TDS Tree" and I am not sure what that is or how to use it. I have also found the packages folder in my MiKTeX folder with a lot of .tpm files. How can I add this package to MiKTeX?

    According with the package documentation: With MiKTeX , copy folder pgfornament into C:\texmf\tex\latex , then run MiKTeX Options . In the File name database section, click on Refresh now . – JLDiaz May 27 '14 at 7:39

    There is no miktex package. You will have to install manually. Get the zip (altermundus.com/pages/downloads/packages/pgfornament/…) unpack it, move all files that looks as you would need them to a folder whatever/tex/latex/pgfornament outside of miktex. Then go to miktex options, tab roots and add whatever as a new root. – Ulrike Fischer May 27 '14 at 14:26
  • Thanks guys, my problem was that the root wasn't set up, worked like a charm, thanks! – chs21259 May 27 '14 at 15:58

    This question appears to be off-topic because it is about a localized issue concerning MikTeX root setup. – Paul Gessler Jan 12 '15 at 16:47
  • I had this issue and had to download and uncompress pgfornamaent, as in link above,second comment, and then move the pgfornament directory to miktex2.9->tex->latex directory. Then go to start->miktex->maintenance(admin)->miktex settings ->general -> refresh fndb – Maesumi Dec 21 '15 at 6:27
