I am using Ubuntu Software Center. I found the package, click Install and it says that the package is installed. BUT when I tried to compile my .tex file it says

LaTeX Error: File `fullpage.sty' not found.

When I typed in the terminal locate fullpage.sty nothing appears. When I typed apt-get install fullpage, it gives the following error:

E: Unable to locate package fullpage

I already did mktexlsr

What should I do in this case?

Under Ubuntu, fullpage.sty is in the package texlive-latex-extra. You can install it with

sudo apt-get install texlive-latex-extra

Since the documentation is very big (327 MB), I installed it with

sudo apt-get install texlive-latex-extra --no-install-recommends

If you installed via apt-get, you should install packages via apt-get, which does not currently seem to have a textlive-preprint package so you'll need to use sudo apt-get install texlive-latex-extra

If you happened to install otherwise such as MacTeX or a manual install on Linux, you can use tlmgr to install the small preprint package sudo tlmgr install preprint
