I am using MiKTeX 2.9 and tryng to install the graphicx package. But it is not available on the package manager:


Could anyone help on this?

I found MiKTeX 2.9 doesn't find the includegraphics package, but there is no answer.

This question came from our site for professional and enthusiast programmers.

This is bizarre, since graphicx should form part of every basic LaTeX installation - it's part of the basic "LaTeX tools". What did you install in terms of MiKTeX 2.9? Perhaps try to re-install completely... – Werner Nov 1 '13 at 22:22

In MiKTeX as well as in TeX Live, graphicx is contained in graphics. Hence, install graphics and you should be all set.

This sort of bundling is relatively common with basic packages or if a single author has a lot of packages (e.g. the oberdiek bundle). To see if a package is part of a bundle, go to its CTAN site. E.g. the following is from the graphicx CTAN page:

graphicx on CTAN
