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.
