$ unzip /download/path/disser-<version>.tds.zip
$ mktexlsr

4.2. Installation from sources

Enter the following commands in the command prompt: - in a Unix-like environment:

$ env DESTDIR=/path/to/texmf make install
  • in Windows command line prompt:
$ set DESTDIR=disk:\path\to\texmf
$ nomake install

Here /path/to/texmf and disk:\path\to\texmf are paths to your local TeX directory tree. After installation you should update the filename database with the command

$ mktexlsr

if you install the package to user's directory "%APPDATA%\MiKTeX\2.9" or

$ mktexlsr --admin

if you install the package to one of the common directories, like "%programfiles%\MiKTeX 2.9" or "%ALLUSERSPROFILE%\MiKTeX\2.9".

Examples of commands for MiKTeX 2.9.
