QuickGuide: Adding LNCS Springer Style to LaTeX install


A while ago I posted about installing the LNCS LaTeX classes. Those instructions are wrong, here is a better way of doing it.

  1. In $HOME create the following directory structure: ‘texmf/tex/latex’.
  2. Add the lncs folder as a subfolder of ‘latex’.
  3. Run the command texhash Other latex packages not found in the latex package manager can be installed the same way, baposter for example.

On Linux $HOME is ~, and on Mac OS X it is ~/Library.

Also for those that want a version of LNCS that works with href, one can be found here.
