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.

    Thanks for the nice and easy explanation!
    I’d like to add that, in order to use LNCS bibliography, it is necessary to add the folder to $HOME/texmf/bibtex/bst as well. I’m sure the files can be split between the two folders (e.g., *.bst files to bibtex and *.sty files to latex), but I don’t have time to experiment with the other files right now, so I just added all files to both folders to get it to work.
