I am a new user of LaTeX and would like to use it for my Master's thesis. I would like to use the styles from Journal of Finance (cf. http://faculty.haas.berkeley.edu/stanton/texintro/).

Unfortunately I dont' know how to install the .sty files in my MacTex/ I use TexMaker (what is the difference, where do you install?). The installation guides refer to Library/texmf, but this folder does not exist in my folder structure. I assume this is because of MacTex 2019 distribution and changes in folder structure (only user/Library/texlive/2019/texmf-var/tedxdoc or user/Library/texlive/2018/texmf-var/fonts/tfm...)

Thanks in advance.

Similar question but they dont tackle my missing folder problem (How do I add a .sty file to my MacTeX/TeXShop installation?)

  • Putting the files in your working directory should be all you have to do – DG' Nov 30 '19 at 17:52
  • I want to use the styles for several document and so it should be selectable as new document style without having it in each folder. – PSA Nov 30 '19 at 18:03
  • Then put it in ~/Library/texmf. Use Alan Munn's script to create the directory structure: msu.edu/~amunn/latex/make-local-texmf.zip – DG' Nov 30 '19 at 18:08
  • Already tried the script and I receive the error: “make-local-texmf” is damaged and can’t be opened. You should move it to the Bin.. There is no ~/Library/texmf folder. – PSA Nov 30 '19 at 18:25
  • Try: mkdir -p ~/Library/texmf/latex, then copy all your packages there – DG' Nov 30 '19 at 18:37
