Ubuntu: LaTeX Error: File `kpfonts.sty' not found


I downloaded a template tried to run on my Texmaker. It says "LaTeX Error: File `kpfonts.sty' not found." How can I install this font on my system?


According to Ubuntu Packges this file is in a package called texlive-fonts-extra. To install this package use the command:

sudo apt-get install texlive-fonts-extra  


If a latex document which works in another latex installation fails to compile on your system, especially when asking for a certain file as in this case, pretty sure there is a whole package missing. In this case, it requires the latex package "kpfonts" which you have to install separately. On Ubuntu, the best way to do this is an installation via apt-get. Let's do a qiuck search:

apt-cache search kpfonts  

points you to a package alled texlive-fonts-extra.

apt-cache show texlive-fonts-extra  

tells you that this package is a collection of different font packages, including kpfonts.

So the only thing you need to do is:

sudo apt-get install texlive-fonts-extra  

If you don't like installing all those other packages included in there, take a look at https://tex.stackexchange.com/questions/10316/how-to-install-new-packages-on-texmaker-on-ubuntu ... and use google, this should help, too.

BTW: Could anyone who knows how to format Bash lines beautifully please edit my answer? Thanks in advance!


You need to install the package texlive-fonts-extra.
