Package Installation

Postby ac10 » Sat Nov 26, 2011 8:29 pm


I'm trying to install chemfig to work with TeXShop on Mac OS 10.7.2.

I've downloaded the package and put it in "~/Library/texmf/tex/latex". Whenever I try to typeset though I get the corresponding error.
  1. chemfig.sty not found.

My preamble looks like this:
  1. \documentclass{article}
  2. \usepackage[T1]{fontenc}
  3. \usepackage{graphicx}
  4. \usepackage[margin=1in]{geometry}
  5. \usepackage{wrapfig}
  6. \usepackage{chemfig}

Does any one know what I've done wrong? Or does chemfig not work with TeXShop?

Thanks for your time.

I got it working by putting all the package files the folder I was working in. I'm not sure whether that's the correct way to do it though...?

after coping chemfig.sty perform "texhash" command in your comand line, probably you need to be a root. After, to check, perform "kpsewhich chemfig.sty". If all is ok you will see path to your chemfig.sty. Now you can compile your .tex code

Return to “TeXShop”
