I am new here. Before I decided to ask this question I spent a few hours looking for an answer on my own.

I'm trying to include the "tikz-lad­der" ( https://ctan.org/pkg/tikz-ladder ) library to my document using:


Tex says that it can't find the library. I'm trying to install it through TexLive but I can't the "tikz-ladder" package.

I'm using TeXStudio under Fedora 27. By "TexLive" I mean typing "dnf install texlive-" into terminal. I've already installed "texlive-full" and "texlive-tikz*" through "my TexLive".

Thanks in advance.

  • As a workaround, you could manually install it either in your current directory or your texmf folder from ctan.org/tex-archive/graphics/pgf/contrib/tikz-ladder (see also tex.stackexchange.com/questions/73016/…) – user36296 Apr 21 '18 at 15:07
  • Do you have updated your package manager? have you tried with the following command tlmgr update --self and then tlmgr install pkgname. if wou need some automated and friendly graphicaly option, you could change to Miktex, its only a suggestion, it could not mean that one is better than other. – J Leon V.
