# [texhax] using lineno.sty with latex

Here is what was happening

I was doing that, by clicking on "download" this would open the file in
internet explorer. Then I would save it to my latex directory. This
process somehow changed the file and this was the source of the problem.

I found out that another way to get that package was through miktex. In
this case when you choose to download it yu can extract all of the
required files straight to your directory without opening them and thus
avoiding the problem mentioned above.

thanks for the help

I knew I should've taken a moment to either type (untested)'' or to
test it.

Okay, \documentclass{article} then.

But apparently one needs some additional bit of code to turn on line
numbering....

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage{lineno}
\begin{document}

\linenumbers

Test.

Testing.

Testing 1, 2, 3

\end{document}

(tested)

If the above doesn't work for Joao, then there must be something wrong
in the copy of lineno.sty which is being used.
