I've tried many places..
Usr/Library/texmf/Latex/opustex/*.tex and *.sty
usr/Library/texmf/tex/opustex/*.tex and *.sty
usr/Library/texmf/fonts/tfm/opustex/ *.tfm
usr/Library/TeXShop/localtexmf/tex/opustex/*.tex and *.sty as I first  
tried to install all the files here so similarly fonts/source and  

I also tried to install them in the root Library/texmf.

the binary I have tried in

I've probably added more bloat than Microsoft.

I used the guide to installing Opustex on an MS system published by V  
Brandt. at http://www.hermes.net.au/pvb/opustex.html

I've installed MusiXTex using i-installer. where can I find  

Thanks for your help, as I'm a newbie to Tex, coming in at the deep  
end, it seems.
