I am new to latex and i have the following problem. When i use the poker package the following error occurs "poker.sty" not found. I'm using miktex and texmakerx. What is wrong ?

    Welcome to TeX.SX! Since the poker package is not on CTAN, you'll need to download and install it yourself. For MikTeX, you may find the directions here helpful. Mar 26 '14 at 4:27
  • Ty Paul that helped. But know i get a new error. I have the following: \documentclass[11pt,twoside,a4paper]{article} \usepackage{poker} \begin{document} \begin{cards} \crdKs \end{cards} \end{document} and i get this error message Undefined control sequence \crdKs. I have read its because it can not be compiled directly to pdf. And that i have to do like this "LaTeX → DVI → PS → PDF". But how do i compile it that way so it end up in pdf. I cant make it work that way. Mar 26 '14 at 6:17

    poker.sty uses pst-all and pst-blur packages from pstricks, hence the error message concerning \crdKs, if the user tries to compile the document with pdflatex. You have to go the long way round via "latex -> dvipdf". I am afraid, there is no direct compilation to pdf.
