Can't compile with polynom package

  1. Feb 9, 2010 #1
    Hey, guys.

    I'm trying to format long division with latex, and I'd like to use the polynom package. Unfortunately, neither TeXnicCenter/MikTex in Windows nor texlive-latex-base in ubuntu linux is able to compile my document.

    TeXnicCenter just gives a generic error. The latex command in ubuntu gives slightly more detailed information:

    Code (Text):
    File `polynom.sty' not found.
    I've reviewed the official polynom package documentation without success. Their sample polydemo.tex file gives me the same error (and then some).

    Is there any way I can get this to work? It would be enormously helpful to use this package.

    Thanks in advance!
