I want to to install esvect.sty on my texmaker, I have ubuntu 14.04 and tex live from Ubuntu software center.

I downloaded esvect.zip from this https://ctan.org/pkg/esvect. I follow the README instruction step by step and I already have *.mf and *.tfm files but, where are the MFINPUT directory, TFM directory and TEXINPUT directory to put those files ? I think the correct directory is on /usr/share/texlive.. but I don't know exactly what folders are.

Thank you for read

postscript: I'm really new on this, is the first time i want to install a .sty file, so please be patient with me, I'm sorry for my Grammar, English is not my native language.

  • Welcome to TeX SX! Why don't you install this package with tlmgr? – Bernard Dec 24 '17 at 22:29
  • I tried tlmgr install package esvect but it didn't work, it show: cannot setup TLPDB in /home/hernando/texmf at /usr/bin/tlmgr line 5336. – hernando jose de avila pereira Dec 24 '17 at 23:04
  • Did it work this way? – Bernard Dec 24 '17 at 23:05
  • no it didn't, maybe i don't have tlmgr – hernando jose de avila pereira Dec 24 '17 at 23:21
  • sudo apt-get install texlive-fonts-extra – egreg Dec 25 '17 at 0:28

You don't need to install manually a package already included in TeX Live.

It turns out that esvect is a member of texlive-fonts-extra, so

sudo apt-get install texlive-fonts-extra

will take care of all details.
