[Tex/LaTex] How to install a latex package in MacOS TeXLive


I just downloaded cyrillic package into a temp directory and executed:

sudo latex cyrlatex.ins

It works, but it produces a few dozen files in the same directory. How to place them into my TeXLive installation directory? Or let's put it this way – how to install a package into TeXLive on Mac OS?

You should extract the package into ~/texmf/tex/latex/$PACKAGENAME and run latex from that folder. After that you should run texhash or mktexlsr from your home folder
