   README.txt (this file)

2. Installation

 - Run lipsum.ins through latex

 - Move the resulting .sty file and the resulting .ltd.tex files
   to a place where latex finds it.
   On a TDS compliant system this should be (substitute $TEXMF
   with your local or home texmf directory):


 - If you want to produce your own documentation file (maybe
   dvi instead of pdf) run lipsum.dtx through latex.

 - Move the documentation (lipsum.pdf, if you haven't produced
   your own file in a different format) in a TDS compliant
   system to:


 - If you like to, move the source files (.dtx and .ins) in a
   source directory of your system.

 - Update your filename database. How to achieve this depends
   on your system. For teTeX and texlive, `texhash' will work.

 - If you are using a non TDS compliant system take a look in
   the documentation how to install new packages.
