LaTeX packages in home directory

I finally figured out how to get downloaded LaTeX packages working from my home directory:

Create ~/texmf!

I’d actually known that first step since long ago, but it didn’t work after a few tries, so I gave up. Anyhow, it works now, and (for example) I can put a custom bst file in ~/texmf/bibtex/bst without needing separate copies of it in each directory where I have a document in need of it. yay!

  1. Hi,

    perhaps have a look into texmf.cnf on your computer, there are comments inside explaining the configuration for the TeX file search and how it could be adjusted.
