Not sure if this is intermittent or not.  If it consistently fails, we had a similar issue.  My notes say:
The permissions on a latex file needed corrected so the web server could read it. To be exact, the following commands were ran:

chmod 755 /usr/share/texmf/tex/latex/picins
chmod 644 /usr/share/texmf/tex/latex/picins/picins.sty

Subject: [LON-CAPA-admin] LaTeX Errors with Printing

Good Morning All:
Our instance has developed a strange, inconsistent problem in the past week.  Printing in LON-CAPA is not working 100% of the time on 3 of our Access servers and is inconsistent on the Library server.  The error message that is presented is:

LaTeX could not successfully parse your TeX file.
It probably has errors in it.
Here are the error messages in the LaTeX log file:
! LaTeX Error: File `picins.sty' not found.

Type X to quit or  to proceed,
or enter new name. (Default extension: sty)

Enter file name:
! Emergency stop.

l.3 ...kage{wrapfig}\usepackage{picins}\usepackage
End of file on the terminal!

I am completely at a lost as to what to even check for a this juncture as the LaTeX package appears to be installed on the servers.  Any advice from the gallery?

Thanks so much!
