I am editing a document in Texmaker and am fairly new to LaTeX. I am using the output PDFLaTeX/view PDF. I added the kpfonts package to my document to change the font:


and got the following error:

! LateX Error: File 'kpfonts.sty' not found.

Probably kpfonts is not installed. Use the manager of your TeX distribution to install it. It is available with the same name in TeX Live and MiKTeX.

How to I get it from this? I don't see a download link miktex.org/packages/kpfonts – outworld devourer Sep 19 '13 at 0:39
@outworlddevourer: MiKTeX has a package manager. It should list kpfonts. Select and install it. – Heiko Oberdiek Sep 19 '13 at 2:16
Is it on the software? I'm confused on what to do with it... I installed MikTeX and it doesn't open. I can't find any links on their main website. – outworld devourer Sep 19 '13 at 3:48
See this answer. – Sean Allred Sep 19 '13 at 4:16
@outworlddevourer: Startmenu → MiKTeX 2.9 → Maintenance → Package Manager. MiKTeX documentation: Working With the Package Manager. – Heiko Oberdiek Sep 19 '13 at 7:49
