How do I install an individual package on a Linux system?
I've had this problem for a while now on Ubuntu. Whenever I have a missing
.sty file (right now, it's
outlines.sty), I have to go to synaptic and search for the .sty file. Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't. Then, I search for it on this site or some search engine -- all basic adhoc stuff.
I was wondering if there's a regular/reliable way of finding if a .sty file is available for my distro. MikTeX has a great package manager and I wish we have something similar on Ubuntu.
Also, should this be here or on the askubuntu site? I haven't had this issue with any of the rest of Ubuntu so posting it here first.
