    You can put things in user texmf tree.  


    Its location depends on the
    distro you use.  On Debian TeX-Live, I believe it is in ~/texmf.

Yes, and that is the standard location for all Unixish systems, except
macosx which uses ~/Library/texmf.

    After installing anything in ~/texmf, you'll need to run
        texhash ~/texmf

For the record, unless you have many thousands of files in ~/texmf, it's
not necessary, or desirable, to run texhash on it.  It will work fine
without it and it's one less thing to (forget to) keep in sync.
