Hi there folks
I've prepared a BibTex style file (NewEngland.bst) which I'd like to be able to reference from all subdirectories of my home directory. I should mention that the style works fine when referred to from within the same directory as the .tex and .bib files are located.
Following a lead, I made a ~/texmf/ directory and copied it and ran texhash
ben@nutmeg:~$ cat texmf/ls-R
% ls-R -- filename database for kpathsea; do not change this line.
But apparently bibtex doesnt find it:
ben@nutmeg:~/medicine/research/CO2$ bibtex proposal
This is BibTeX, Version 0.99c (Web2C 7.4.5)
The top-level auxiliary file: proposal.aux
I couldn't open style file NewEngland.bst
---line 23 of file proposal.aux
I'm skipping whatever remains of this command
I found no style file---while reading file proposal.aux
(There were 2 error messages)
Other things that I've tried and failed:
> copying files to /usr/local/share/texmf/tex/latex/ & /usr/local/share/texmf/tex/bibtex/ and running texhash
> Enteringthe following to /bashrc
export TEXINPUTS= ~/texmf/:
Anyone out there got a bright idea?
