I want to install fltpage package (https://ctan.org/pkg/fltpage) for my thesis. I'm using Windows 10 LTSC and NVIM v0.3.4 inside Windows subsystem for linux and TeX 3.14159265 (TeX Live 2019) with kpathsea version 6.3.1.

I have tried to put the .sty file everywhere /home/myhome/txmf/ftlpage/fltpage.sty, in /home/myhome/txmf/tex/latex/ftlpage/fltpage.sty , in /usr/local/texlive/2019/texmf-dist/tex/latex/fltpage/fltpage.sty

After each try I typed sudo $(which mktexlsr)

but I still have the same message File 'fltpage.sty' not found

I will appreciate any help thank you very much in advance !

And for info the output of kpsewhich --var-value TEXMF is

{{}/home/vincent/.texlive2019/texmf-config,/home/vincent/.texlive2019/texmf-var,/home/vincent/texmf,!!/usr/local/texlive/texmf-local,!!/usr/local/texlive/2019/texmf-config,!!/usr/local/texlive/2019/texmf-var,!!/usr/local/texlive/2019/texmf-dist}

EDIT : Solution is to place the file like /usr/local/texlive/texmf-local/tex/latex/fltpage/fltpage.sty AND to remove ls-R file in the texmf tree. Thank you @Ulrike Fischer !

  • /usr/local/texlive/texmf-local/tex/latex/fltpage looks like a good place. May 5 '20 at 11:40
  • Thank you for your response but it did not work. Edit : post inadvertently too soon My file structure is as follow : /usr/local/texlive/texmf-local/tex/latex/fltpage/fltpage.sty I still have the same error. I'm wondering if it could be my vimtex plugin playing a role...

  • do you have an lsr file in this texmf tree? If yes better delete it. May 5 '20 at 13:19
  • Not all heroes wear capes (although I don't what you are wearing right now) ! That was the problem ! Thank you very much ! Just to understand the ls-R file is not updated after each sudo $(which mktexlsr)

    please don't edit solutions into the question it messes up the Q&A format of the site. It's fine to post an answer to your own question. May 5 '20 at 14:00
