How can I install both fonts in the page http://www.tug.dk/FontCatalogue/garamondx/ to work together? My attempt so far was installing both as OpenType system fonts and using XeLaTeX with no success. I'm currently using TeXworks and MikTeX on Windows 7.

the Type 1 version should be already installed. So you can use it in the same way as shown on that web page – Herbert Dec 23 '12 at 19:49

Thanks Herbert and Kurt. Does this Type 1 include the math supports? Because as of right now all math characters are displayed regularly in Roman font. – Babiker Dec 23 '12 at 20:05
And currently I'm getting LaTeX Error: File `garamondx.sty' not found, and Package mathdesign Warning: No font specified on input line 183. – Babiker Dec 23 '12 at 20:07
Open the MiKTeX Package Manager and either install both garamondx and mathdesign or you see there, that they are already installed, but because of the error message it is clear, that at least garamondx is not (properly) installed. – Speravir Dec 23 '12 at 20:32

The garamondx package and the URW GaramondNo8 fonts are not included in either TeX Live or MiKTeX because of their restrictive licences. The easiest way to install them is through the getnonfreefonts script—see the instructions at

Michael, that’s not fully true: garamondx can in MiKTeX be installed with the package manager, I’ve done that – it is not part of the basic installer (but this could change in future releases). MiKTeX is not that restrictive like TeX Live (and getnonfreefonts is only for TeX Live). BTW thank you for your font providings! – Speravir Dec 24 '12 at 23:45
