I am using TexLive and TexStudio, and am trying to install the bbm and physics latex packages. I have followed the instructions from this page: https://scholar.princeton.edu/scuellar/blog/2014/02/adding-new-packages-latex, yet when I try to use these packages, I get messages like "File `bbm.sty' not found. \RequirePackage". Does anyone know what the issue might be here? I am using Ubuntu 18.04, TexStudio 2.12.6, and tex 3.14159265 and kpathsea 6.2.3 for TexLive.


If understand you correctly, you need single file bbm.sty - it is located in texlive-fonts-extra package.

Install it with:

sudo apt-get install texlive-fonts-extra

and then compile your TeX document.
