Restoring floatflt.sty


LaTeX Error: File `floatflt.sty' not found

Solution (to be run as root):

mkdir -p /usr/share/texmf-texlive/tex/latex/floatflt
cd /usr/share/texmf-texlive/tex/latex/floatflt
rm -f floatflt.* float*.tex
latex floatflt.ins
texhash /usr/share/texmf-texlive

Explanation: floatflt has an unusual license which has been deemed unfree.  It was included in Ubuntu 9.10, but has been removed from Ubuntu 10.04Build instructions, however, are provided.

Can’t you just install the 9.10 package on your 10.4 system? At worst, I would expect it to be easy to “for-port” the package if it has incompatible dependencies.

I install texlive, which includes texlive-latex-recommended which includes stuff I need, but doesn’t include  floatflt.  As near as I can tell, floatflt isn’t separately packaged on 9.10:

$ apt-cache search floatflt
texlive-latex-recommended - TeX Live: LaTeX recommended packages

I also want a solution that works going forward as new releases of Ubuntu come out.  As near as I can tell, the software is available without charge, I am complying with the license terms, and am installing it per the recommendations.

Thank you for this. It worked.

It’s not just Ubuntu. floatflt has been pulled from all the texlive distributions.

On Ubuntu 10.10, I had to issue a ‘texconfig rehash’ as root in order for tex builds to find floatflt.sty.  Otherwise, it worked like a charm!

This saved me some time today when I discovered that my Ubuntu install did not have floatflt. Thanks!
