Maarten I am blushing, because I asked a faq. I never installed a package
like this. Sorry to this list.

Perhaps somebody could check, whether I did it right this time ...

    [markslap:~/Desktop/minutes] mareklap% tex minutes.ins
    [markslap:~/Desktop/minutes] mareklap% latex minutes.dtx
        # two times to get the index ...
    [markslap:] mareklap% cd
    [markslap:latex/docs/minutes] mareklap% sudo rm minutes*
            #here were two files from my former (wrong) installation
    [markslap:latex/docs/minutes] mareklap% sudo cp
        ~/Desktop/minutes/minutes.sty .
    [markslap:latex/docs/minutes] mareklap% cd ../../../../
    [markslap:share/texmf.gwtex/doc] mareklap% cd texmf.gwtex/doc/
    [markslap:share/texmf.gwtex/doc] mareklap% sudo mkdir minutes
    [markslap:share/texmf.gwtex/doc] mareklap% sudo cp
        ~/Desktop/minutes/minutes.dtx minutes/
    [markslap:share/texmf.gwtex/doc] mareklap% kpsewhich minutes.sty

Apparently everything is compiling well now ! Thank you for your prompt
answer again


ps: perhaps somebody could give me privately a hint to my OT-question in my
original (first) posting ?
