I'm using Texpad on OS X with MacTex backend. I need to install biblatex-gost. The authors say that it can be installed automatically, though it doesn't happen. I added \usepackage{biblatex-gost} to my tex source and it couldn't find the package. I then ran tlmgr install biblatex-gost. It finished successfully, but Texpad still couldn't find the package. Now if I repeat tlmgr install biblatex-gost, it says

$ tlmgr install biblatex-gost
tlmgr: package repository http://ctan.altspu.ru/systems/texlive/tlnet (not verified: gnupg not available)
tlmgr install: package already present: biblatex-gost

Apparently, it is installed, so why can't Texpad find it? What am I doing wrong?

  • Are you sure you don't by chance have two latex installations and your texpad picks up the wrong one? Try compiling you document from the command line to test. – daleif Nov 3 '16 at 18:10

biblatex-gost provides various styles for formatting your references with biblatex. As such its intended usage is via biblatex's options. Here is one example taken from the biblatex-gost documentation:

\usepackage[%
    citestyle=alphabetic-verb,
    bibstyle=gost-alphabetic,
    ...
]{biblatex}
