I'm trying to compile a hebrew Lyx file on Linux, and I get an error that the file 'bidi.sty' is not found. Which package has this file? I'd like to install it and see if it works...

  • According to the CTAN page on bidi you are looking for the (aptly named) bidi package in both MikTeX and TeX Live. – moewe Oct 15 '15 at 8:37
  • @moewe I tried to install it, but the terminal says that it was unable to locate that package. – Guy Oct 15 '15 at 8:38
  • How did you try installing it? Via tlmgr (TeX Live)/Package Manager (MikTeX) or manually? – moewe Oct 15 '15 at 8:40
  • @moewe I wrote sudo apt-get install bidi. How can I try it through tlmgr? – Guy Oct 15 '15 at 8:41

    The package texlive-lang-arabic should be enough. – moewe Oct 15 '15 at 8:47
