Linux: include localtexmf files from MikTex 2.7

This page is obsolete! You shoul be using MikTex2.9 by now (available via \\winstorage\MikTex\miktex29). Continue at yor own risk!!

For installing LaTeX packages under your own homedir, the following steps should be taken:

  1. Determine the tree default used for their individual installations of additional or updated macros, fonts, etc., by typing kpsewhich -var-value TEXMFHOME. Throughout we assume that the result from this command is /home/user/texmf, so everywhere where you find /home/user/texmf you should replace that by the outcome of this command.
  2. If that directory does not exist, create it using mkdir: mkdir /home/user/texmf.
  3. Next, move to that directory by typing cd /home/user/texmf.
  4. Put the file in that directory. The file is available the POOL (S-drive) in the miktex27 directory.
  5. Unzip the file '' by typing unzip
  6. Run updmap by typing 'updmap'

Now the fonts can be found, as well as all other local MikTeX packages, including beamertue2008
