I have written you twice the exact instructions how to install LaTeX
packages system-wide without the need to read any manual. My third and
really last attempt:

1. Make a directory of arbitrary name under
/some/path/texlive/texmf-local/tex/latex (I hope you can find where
/some/path/texlive is in your computer)

2. Put your file(s) to that directory

3. Run mktexlsr

Please, follow these instructions and you will have working system
within less than 5 minutes. Sorry, I am not able to write it more
