(Apologies for asking a TeX/LaTeX question here, but I'm doing this in the
context of Moin and have no hooks of any kind into the TeX community...)

It's been a *long* time since I used/installed LaTeX, but we concluded we
needed more math muscle on our wiki than native Moin could provide.  I
installed Johannes Berg's latex macro/parser for Moin and LaTeX from the TeX
Live ISO image.  I wormed around a couple 2.3 dependencies in
parser/latex.py (this particular web server is still running 2.2.2).  Now
I'm stumped getting LaTeX to process Johannes' simple example:

    [[latex(\usepackage{dsfont} % $$\mathds{C}$$)]]

No image output is displayed inline.  Rummaging around I found a .tex file


Running LaTeX directly on that complained about a missing dsfont.sty.  I
can't find that file anywhere in the TeX Live installation (/usr/TeX).  I'm
probably missing something basic, but what?
