# [Tex/LaTex] Installing tabu.sty with MacTeX 2010.

installingmactexpackages

I use MacTeX 2010, and I need to install tabu.sty.
I run tlmgr to install the package, but without luck.

> sudo tlmgr install tabu.sty

tlmgr: package repository http://ctan.math.utah.edu/ctan/tex-archive/systems/texlive/tlnet
package tabu.sty not present in package repository.

• What would be the easiest way to install tabu.sty?
• Why tabu.sty is not in repository?

The name of the package for the purposes of tlmgr is not tabu.sty it's tabu because packages often contain a bunch of other files (documentation for sure, plus other files that you may not be aware of.) So the way to install tabu is:
sudo tlmgr install tabu
