Packages from Distribution Repository cause Trouble

Postby plusminus » Tue Oct 15, 2013 4:14 pm

Three days ago I installed LMDE. The next step was to add Kile with all packages by these steps.
  1. sudo apt-get install texlive-full
  2. sudo texhash

However pst-vectorian and "mpfnmark" don't work.

Shall I change something?

According to the information about texlive-pstricks the package pst-vectorian is included there.

I can't say anything about this repsository and its content. I only know that the `mpfnmark` package doesn't officially exist anymore (since about ten years) and its functionality has been incorporated into the footmisc package. Perhaps you can get `mpfnmark` from somewhere in the net and integrate it manually into your TeX installation.

Regardless of that it may be worth a thought about installing a vanilla TeX Live from either DVD or by the web installer over the net.

Thank you very much for your answer.
The last four days I had a lot of trouble installing vanilla TeX Live on LMDE. As they were some further problems with that OS I tried LM15.
Result: vanilla TeX live installed successfully.
Already added pst-vectorian, nice package.

best wishes
