I'm trying to use steinmetz.sty package in texmaker (texlive installed underneath), in a debian system (updated to date july 2018).

I've downloaded the package from homepage (https://ctan.org/pkg/steinmetz) generated .sty file.

Here is the question, where I'm supposed to put it in order my editor to include it in compilation process?

I've found directory /usr/share/texlive/texmf-dist/tex/latex with a bunch of directories that I've concluded are supposed to contain the corresponding .sty file, after exploring all the directories included here.

So I created a new one called "steinmetz" and copy "steinmetz.sty" in it without success. To test it, I stopped and re-start textmamker, and, again, no compilation.

Thanks for your help.

    Welcome to TeX.SX! Did you try apt install texlive-science? – egreg Jul 2 '18 at 16:45

I installed texlive-science and now I have a new directory:


containing four packages, among them I have steinmetz.sty.

I've also verified that this file and the one I used to try are the same (using diff) So, there must be a logic about directory names and placing policy I can't figure out now. But that's another issue.
