Missing doc files in package 'lettre'

Postby erwann » Thu Aug 25, 2016 9:50 pm

This file and a few others are missing from /usr/local/texlive/2016/texmf-dist/doc/latex/lettre Re-installing the package does not add the missing file. Is it supposed to be that way (add the files manually)? That's how I found out:
  1. $ pdflatex -v
  2. pdfTeX 3.14159265-2.6-1.40.17 (TeX Live 2016)
  3. $ pdflatex letex3.tex
  4. ...
  5. ! LaTeX Error: File `obs.ins' not found.
  6. ...
OS X 10.11
pdfTeX 3.14159265-2.6-1.40.17

Hi Erwann!

It seems that you used a version for "l'Observatoire". In letex3.tex, line 26, it changes the default via \institut{obs}.

Comment out that line, or change to \institut{default}.

For your own institute, you would need your own file, such as `institute.ins`. This could be a copy of default.ins (or that obs.ins from that website), that you could put into the same folder where your own document is, and rename and change the content.
