I tried everything (I think)!
texlive-publishersfollowing How to install AASTEX with dependencies on Ubuntu 14.04
installing the Vanilla TexLive, as indicated in https://tex.stackexchange.com/a/171560/9057
Now, aastex.sty IS present on my machine but Kile doesn't see it.
Below some info:
kpsewhich -var-value=TEXMFLOCAL gives
locate aastex.sty gives
if I try
texhash I get
texhash: /usr/local/texlive/2016/texmf-config: directory not writable. Skipping...
texhash: /usr/local/texlive/2016/texmf-dist: directory not writable. Skipping...
texhash: /usr/local/texlive/2016/texmf-var: directory not writable. Skipping...
texhash: /usr/local/texlive/texmf-local: directory not writable. Skipping...
Can somebody, please, tell me what's wrong with my computer?
How can I make Kile see it and use it?
the compiler finds the downloaded .sty file if I place it in the same folder folder as the .tex file, but it's practically unusable since the compiler gives many errors.
should I first compile it separately? If so, with what? Thank you
