LaTeX Packages

apps

#1

I am trying to install LaTeX packages and am having issues since it is attempting to write to the /var/lib/texmf folder which I obviously do not have permission for.

[quote][capone]$ texhash
texhash: Updating /home/skata/texmf/ls-R…
texhash: /var/lib/texmf/ls-R-TEXMFMAIN: no write permission. Skipping…
texhash: /var/lib/texmf/ls-R-TEXMFDIST-TETEX: no write permission.
Skipping…
texhash: /var/lib/texmf/ls-R: no write permission. Skipping…
texhash: Done.

Has anyone installed custom LaTeX packages??

I’d go with /home/skata/local/var… See if you can modify the makefile to use home paths.

Thanks for the reply, but there really was no make file… its just a .sty file that I am supposed to drop in a specific folder and then run texhash. Is there a way to specify a for LaTeX or texhash?
