My question is generally about adding elsarticle document class to TeXStudio. In the installation documents it says that I should download .ins and .dtx files and compile them with latex. I don't know what it exactly mean.

What I could do was to compile ecrc-template.tex with TexStudio and start writing inside it. But, without the template, I could not add this class to TeXStudio.

I'd be grateful if you kindly help me with this.

  • TeXStudio is just a front end. Which TeX distribution do you use: TeXLive, MacTeX, MikTeX, or something else entirely? – Mico Sep 29 '14 at 17:27
  • I use TeXLive. Sorry not to mention it. – user63380 Sep 29 '14 at 17:28
  • Since you use TeXLive, the elsarticle document class should already be installed unless you chose some nonstandard installation procedure. Do you know how to run the tlmgr utililty? It should provide a bullet-proof way of installing and updating packages. – Mico Sep 29 '14 at 17:34
  • That's strange. I installed TeXLive through a DVD I got from the university but tlmgr is not included in the package I installed!!! – user63380 Sep 29 '14 at 18:40
