    Help installing LaTex packages

    I am trying to install a package called "mhchem" to use in texmaker on ubuntu but having trouble. I downloaded the .sty file but cannot seem to do anything with it. I also tries using terminal to download and install by typing:

    sudo latex mhchem.sty

    I get an error messsage advising "i cannot find file 'mhchem.sty'

    Does anyone know what I can do to resolve this? I am using LaTeX for writing my PhD thesis and was originally using Texnic Centre on Windows on which mhchem worked fine.

    Thanks for your assistance.

    I can be found either 40 miles west of Chicago, in Chicago, or in a galaxy far, far away.
    Latex won't download the file, which is what I suspect you are trying to do. Where is it located?
    Sometimes, real fast is almost as good as real time.
