Dawn­load MacTeX

I need a name and a pass­word to down­load the MacTeX for 10.4.11. Where in this maze of site(s) does one en­counter any reg­is­tra­tion, etc. sys­tem?

It seems that I can't run the pack­age

I wanted to try out your ex­am­ple to see if I could com­pile it (I work with tex­maker for mac). How­ever, it shows these two er­rors:

1.) ! LaTeX Er­ror: File `xcooky­booky.sty' not found. Type X to quit or <RETURN> to pro­ceed, or en­ter new name. (De­fault ex­ten­sion: sty)

2.) line 1: ! ==> Fatal er­ror oc­curred, no out­put PDF file pro­duced!

TikZ/PGF sup­port

Ex­cel­lent pack­age, I love it. How­ever I use TikZ/PGF a lot for mod­i­fy­ing pic­tures (ar­rows, crop­ping, etcetera), plot­ting data and cre­ate sim­ple fig­ures of this and that. Sadly, tikz or pgf code in­side a wrap­fig en­vi­ron­ment does not work.

Is it pos­si­ble to work to­wards im­ple­ment­ing TikZ sup­port in wrap­fig?

The wrap­fig.sty is miss­ing in the open­suse 12.3. It is also be wri­iten in La­texCon­fig 8.39 with "No".

Nim­bus Sans and Ro­man in monospace (MyFonts).

Nim­bus Sans and Ro­man have monospaced ver­sions only avail­able in MyFonts. You have tried Nim­bus Sans Monospace in MyFonts and it has the slab ser­ifs in I/J on it! There is no check box to re­mem­ber your set­tings when leav­ing an guest book en­try!

Nim­bus Sans and Ro­man in monospace.

You will need Nim­bus Sans and Ro­man in monospace in­cluded for us­age in TeX. Nim­bus Sans (fixed-width) added ser­ifs to cap­i­tal I/J and Nim­bus Ro­man Mono has the same glyphs.
