I'm using TeXLive on a Mac, with VS Code and the LaTeX Workshop extension.

I'm trying to install the igo package for Go diagrams. I'm kind of a noob when it comes to installing LaTeX packages, but the fact that there is little to no information on how to properly install this package — and how old it is — doesn't help either — I've faced a similar situation with the psgo package here.

As far as I understand, in order to install LaTeX packages in general, it works if I simply put the .sty and other files on the same level as my main .tex file. However, this time I'm getting a bazillion font errors, of the sort:

Font \igo@whitefonti=igowhitei10 at 10.0pt not loadable: Metric (TFM) file or installed font not found.

At first I tried to simply dump all of the included fonts into the top level folder of the project, but it didn't work. However now I've tried it again and it actually did work. I don't know why it didn't work in my first attempt, but that's how it's been working for me.

And the igo package specifically is available under MiKTeX, so you might not need to go through this hassle if you go for that distribution.
