I'm using TeXstudio, on Mac OS X El Capitan, and I'm writing my text using some template written in LaTeX. I'm having problems installing some missing packages, for instance:

  1. babel support for serbian language
  2. upgreek.sty is missing

I tried various solutions that I have found on the Internet, and I'm running out of the options.

  • you're missing the underlying engine. you only have the editor installed. you need to install a current version of either MacTeX or TeX Live.

  • Try installing first MacTeX, tug.org/mactex, then texstudio.

Real answer is using tlmgr command:

sudo tlmgr install package-name

For OSX (now macOS) there is also separate version of TeXLive available, which is called MacTex. The full installer comes with all packages (including upgreek, babel-serbian and babel-serbianc) and TeX Live Utility: a neat graphical front-end for tlmgr which allows installing and updating packages without the command line interface.
