The file ls-R in the given directory will be taken as a file name database containing a recursive listing of that directory. There will often be a readme. However, if makefile contains something along the lines of: Any clue will be appreciated. You must always download both files.
This has the advantage that it is not necessary to update the package database as TeX searches your personal texmf tree directly. These steps can also be used on the pieces of a complicated package you wrote yourself; in this case, skip straight to Step 3. It can do that, and we will see in the following how you get that installation bit right. The use of tlmgr is covered in the Installation chapter. To avoid tex distribution or operating system specific requirements on where to put stuff and what to run to get it to be found I use a GNUmakefile rule of the following form: You can download updates to packages you already have both the ones that were installed along with your version of LaTeX as well as ones you added.
