With your Ubuntu TeX Live version, you can install the texlive-latex-recommended package, which contains the subfig package, also subfig.sty.

You can do it at the command prompt, in a terminal:

Code: Select all  •  Open in writeLaTeX
sudo apt-get install texlive-latex-recommended

Stefan,
I am not using Liux/Unix. I work on Windows and My editors are Winedt and TexnicCenter. I am also sitting behind a firewall, so i tried the Miktek options/Update too. None of that work. Hence I prefer the .sty file directly.

I guess I've read Linux in another post ;-) you could download subfig.dtx and subfig.ins from CTAN, just visit the package directory. Then you can use LaTeX to compile subfig.ins, this generates the .sty file.

Just download ftp://<CTAN-server-of-your-choice>/tex-archive/systems/windows/miktex/tm/packages/ completely and use this local copy as a local MikTeX repository. This way you can use the MikTeX package manager (and the MikTeX update manager), no need to install packages by hand.

Using the MiKTeX Net Installer to download a complete MiKTeX system to a local directory seems easier to me.

Since I'm not using Windows/MikTeX at all (but Linux/TL) I didn't know this. Thanks for the tip.
