# Installing Latex Packages

I needed the subfiles package for LaTeX today, but it didn't seem to be included with the TexLive distribution that I installed from the Ubuntu repositories. I downloaded the package which is typically two files: a *.ins and *.dtx file. I found useful info on installing these in two places: for general info the latex wiki books was helpful and for Ubuntu specific there was nice page on the Ubuntu documentation.

That's all.
