# Insert a skak symbol

I'm trying to enter a chess symbols of skak package, and output it at pdflatex but it didn't compile...(at Lyx).

What can I do? I enter it at math mode. (there is no other way).

(Idon't know what is xskak and if it would help...)

Here is the error code:

!pdfTeX error: pdflatex (file SkakNew-Figurine): Font SkakNew-Figurine at 600 n


Here is the code:

Hope it's OK and this is what you mean...(you can edit if you want).

chess symbols are not entered in math mode. Beside this: without some informations why it doesn't compile (log-file) and what code you actually used it is impossible to help you. – Ulrike Fischer May 13 '13 at 14:31
If you want to put some TeX commands directly into the LyX document then you can use ERT / TeX code (CRTL + L). – e-birk May 13 '13 at 14:53
I tried but it doesn't work... I'm writing the document at Hebrew (this is why I need pdflatex). – Yoar May 13 '13 at 16:49
I can enter the symbols only at math mode... – Yoar May 13 '13 at 16:51
Add a minimal working example. – Svend Tveskæg May 13 '13 at 17:03
