I use Kile and at compilation I get the error message:

file sectsty.sty not found

I have downloaded the ctan package, but what do I have to do now ?

    Welcome to TeX.SX! Quick and dirty solution: copy the sectsty.sty file in the same folder than your document. More robust solution, update/upgrade your LaTeX distro. Are you using TeXlive? If yes, you should try $ sudo tlmgr install sectsty. – ebosi Dec 5 '16 at 21:13

The simplest solution is to install using

sudo apt-get install texlive-full
  • Or manually install it from the sources since TeXlive version that is embedded in Ubuntu distro is sometimes outdated. – ebosi Dec 5 '16 at 21:25
  • @ebo Sure, either way will do. – swoop dewoop zoom Dec 5 '16 at 21:27
