This question already has an answer here:

I feel like this shouldn't be too hard to accomplish but I haven't been able to figure it out from some quick googling. On ubuntu, I have the font-stix package installed, and the fonts are actually on my computer (mathjax is rendering with it, for example), but I don't know/understand how to compile a regular LaTeX document (via, eg, pdflatex) with the stix fonts.

edit: I came across that other link when I was googling but nothing there was able to help me get stix working.

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

The package xits is included in TeX live and has a good documentation. The STIX Opentype fonts are also included, and they are used the same way like all Opentype fonts are used in Xe(La)TeX or Lua(La)TeX, but not with PDF(La)TeX. – Speravir Apr 28 '13 at 2:42

I downloaded the stix latex beta package from http://sourceforge.net/projects/stixfonts/, The added the following to preamble


(and deleted my old font setup, of course)
