I am trying to create a presentation using latex (texmaker) - Beamer

I was wondering how to use segoe font in latex. I searched the forums like crazy to install the fontspec package but I had no luck. Here is one link I have found. But, I could not get enough information.

If you really want to dive into using a variety of fonts with LaTeX, I strongly recommend you use the awesome fontspec package in combination with either XeTeX or LuaTeX. fontspec allows you to select any open type font (OTF) that you have installed on your machine using a command like:

\newfontfamily{\Segoe}{Segoe Script}

You can find lots of handwriting or calligraphy fonts on sites like FontSquirrel, e.g. here or here.

I also recommend you check out the documentation of the fontspec package because it demonstrates advanced uses of open type features (e.g. stylistic variants), especially with the Zapfino font.

All Credits to ilpssun. Could some one please tell me how to install the fontspec package on Linux and texmaker


I see that we have to use XeTex package. But the style is not valid anymoroe in that case

    What kind of LaTeX distribution are you using on which platform? If I assume you use TeX Live 2012 on Windows, there is no need to install fontspec since it is already included. – Uwe Ziegenhagen Mar 3 '13 at 5:46

  • In recent TeX distributions fontspec already is pre-installed. And XeTeX is not a package, but one of theoutput engines. – Speravir Mar 3 '13 at 18:29
