I'm trying to download a document class from a university, and would like to use this for my thesis. However I'm very new to all of this, and so really have little clue on where to start. The document class package is located below, I've downloaded the 'ecsdocs.zip' file under the 'installation' heading: http://users.ecs.soton.ac.uk/srg/softwaretools/document/templates/
When unzipped, I am able to extract 5 folders, but can't seem to find my the right local texmf directory to place them in. I have previously placed the files in usr>local>texlive>texmf-local>tex>latex, but can't seem to find the document class after a lyx reconfigure. Is this even the right folder to place the files in? And once placed into the correct folder, what would be the next steps? Would very much appreciate some detailed guidance.
