Notes on using LateX

Packages can be downloaded from the CTAN site:
http://www.ctan.org/

The ¥usepackage{...} command must be placed in the preamble. This commands LateX to use the commands defined in the .sty file package. If the file is not found, the message '_.sty' not found will appear.

Downloaded .sty files can be placed into the same folder as the LateX source file or they can go into the share/texmf/-local/tex/latex folder.
