```Hello,

I'm quite new to the Mac and especially to LaTeX on OSX -- although I'm
using LaTeX on Windows (MikTeX) for years.
Working on a larger project that was made on a Windows PC I use the
following packages, among others:

\usepackage{bigfoot}
\usepackage{attrib}
\usepackage{listings}
\usepackage[ngerman]{varioref}
\usepackage{xspace}

When I try to compile my master file, at least the bigfoot package and
the attrib package (as part of the frankenstein package) are missing

I've installed yesterday the packages MacTeX_Additions and gwTeX and
everything else works fine (as far as I can see).

I know that the missing packages can be found on CTAN (I've already
downloaded them) but my question is where do I install (copy) the
respective files on my MacBook?

Kind regards,

Maik StÃ¼hrenberg
