I am trying to insert in TexMaker the package dirtytalk but I haven't been successful till now. I also have MikTex but is not available there in the list of packages available. Morever, I tried to manually upload it as a directory but I get an error by MikTex because the folder is not a tds ... ? I looked at the documentation on how to create such directory file but I can't make it through. Can someone help me? Is there a fast way to do it?

  • Packages has nothing to do with texmaker, you need to install it in miktex, before you try to install it manually see if it is available in the miktex package manager (I've never heard of this package before). Installing by hand is not for the faint hearted – daleif Aug 9 '16 at 16:46

It's just a simple one-file package so you can just use it in the same directory as your document.

Copy dirtytalk.ins and dirtytalk.dtx from


into the folder with your document and then run process dirtytalk.ins with tex this will generate dirtytalk.sty in that folder, you can then process your document using


as usual.
