Re: Where do I put my own add-on packages?


I suggest that you create a folder in your home directory called
Mathematica. Then, in the applications folder, ctrl-click the Mathematica
icon and select Show Package Contents. You'll see five more folders. Open
Configuration, then Kernel, then init.m. Add
SetDirectory["Mathematica"];
$Path=Append[$Path,"Mathematica"];

at the bottom of the cell and Save.
That's the way I do it.
