Installing custom style

  1. Run these following in terminal:

    git clone ~/templates
    mkdir -p ~/texmf && cp ~/templates/texmf/* ~/texmf/.
    sudo texhash ~/texmf
  2. Add the following to ~/.bashrc or ~/.zshrc, and then reload the file by running . ~/.bashrc, for example, in terminal:

    if [ -d ~/texmf ] ; then
        export TEXMFHOME=::~/texmf
        export TEXINPUTS=::~/texmf
  3. Test to check if texmf folder is mapped correctly to TEXMFHOME by running kpsewhich -var-value TEXMFHOME. This would be /Users/<username>/texmf in macOS; /home/<username>/texmf in Linux, Cygwin, etc.

You can’t perform that action at this time.
