# How do I enter ὅπερ ἔδει δεῖξαι in TeX?

How do I typeset this statement

if I'm using

\usepackage[default]{frcursive}

and

\usepackage[T1]{fontenc}

in my TEX file?

• I tried rendering this while using frcursive but I got something opposite the expected result. – Trancot May 22 '13 at 3:01
• "this statment" := ὅπερ ἔδει δεῖξαι – Trancot May 22 '13 at 3:08

Using pdfTeX (i.e., use latex or pdflatex to compile) and a transliteration for 'ancient' Greek:

\documentclass[12pt]{article}
\parindent0pt
\useackage[T1]{fontenc}%
\usepackage[utf8]{inputenc}%
\usepackage[polutonikogreek,latin,english]{babel}

% switch to language environments
\newcommand{\latin}[1]{%
\foreignlanguage{latin}{#1}}
\newcommand{\grk}[1]{%
\foreignlanguage{polutonikogreek}{#1}}

\begin{document}

English: That which had to be demonstrated.

Latin: \latin{Quod erat demonstrandum.}

% transliteration of ὅπερ ἔδει δεῖξαι
Greek: \grk{<'oper >edei de~ixai.}

\end{document}


Or, using the XeTeX engine (command: xelatex):

\documentclass[12pt]{article}
\parindent0pt

\usepackage{fontspec}
\setmainfont{DejaVu Serif}% <-- pick a font with Greek characters
\usepackage{polyglossia}
\setdefaultlanguage{english}
\setotherlanguages{latin,greek}

\begin{document}

English: That which had to be demonstrated.

Latin: \textlatin{Quod erat demonstrandum.}

Greek: \textgreek{ὅπερ ἔδει δεῖξαι.}

\end{document}

• OK, I found it. This is what comes up when the installation prompt shows up: fonts\tfm\public\cbgreek\grmn1095.tfm I try to install it, but afterwards it just stalls. Perhaps I'm not waiting long enough? – Trancot May 22 '13 at 4:15
• I don't think so. At least not immediately. Maybe later it will fall into place. – Trancot May 22 '13 at 5:29
• v2.3 is what is listed in the PDF contained in my MiKTeK folder. – Trancot May 22 '13 at 5:42

• cbgreek.tar.lzma is the file it's downloading. According to CTAN this is really a large file. I have already used xparse so the l3 stuff should be already here. – marczellm May 22 '13 at 6:01
