glossaries | Package not found, but installed

Postby pyrogerg on Mon Aug 29th, 2011

Does anyone have an idea why I'd get the compiling error message "'glossaries.sty' not found" when Tex Live says that it is installed? The path to it appears to be appropriate (/usr/local/texlive/2011/texmf-dist/tex/latex/glossaries/base/glossaries.sty) and I'm not having trouble with other packages installed under Tex Live.

Thanks in advance.

Obviously it is not properly installed in the TeX installation tree. You can check that on the command line.
Code: Select all  •  Open in writeLaTeX
kpsewhich glossaries.sty

This should yield the complete path. If there is no output, the package is not installed correctly. Perhaps refreshment of the file name database as root on the command line by texhash does the trick.

Thanks for the suggestion. I did as you suggested and kspewhich won't return a path for glossaries.sty, unless I run kpsewhich from the directory in the Tex Live tree where glossaries.sty is located. I've run texhash and that did not fix the problem. What should I try next? I'm still very new to this, so I apologize if I'm missing something obvious.

I tried to uninstall and reinstall the glossaries package using the Tex Live package manager, but Tex Live refused to uninstall it, returning the following message.

tlmgr: not removing glossaries.x86_64-darwin, needed by glossaries
