# [Tex/LaTex] LaTeX Error: File marvosym.sty’ not found.

errorsinstalling

I am trying to get moderncv working. I just installed it and % kpsewhich moderncv.cls1 finds it.

When I compile this tex document:

\documentclass[11pt,a4paper]{moderncv}


(one line document).

I get this error:

! LaTeX Error: File marvosym.sty' not found.


Do I need to install marvosym.sty? Can I just drop it in:

/Users/me/Library/texmf/tex/latex/newFolder


Or do I need to install something else to get marvosym.sty?

Looking from your previous question you seem to have too many missing packages (I'm not sure but I think these should also be available in TeXLive 2009). If you're using MacTeX, there is an application “TeX Live Utility” which should be able to help you installing and updating packages.

If you keep running into problems it's probably a good idea to upgrade your system to TeXLive 2010.
