I would like to install arabxetex package. I have already installed arabtex with command line sudo apt-get install texlive-lang-arabic. However I can't find a similar command for "arabxetex". Is there a command or a manual way to do this? Thank you.


The first answer is completely correct. I just want to add that in case you have problems locating the correct package, use apt-cache search, as in apt-cache search arabxetex, which will return you texlive-xetex - TeX Live: XeTeX and packages, after which you can call apt-cache show texlive-xetex to see the list of included packages.


I found "arabxetex" is included by "xetex" package. Therefore, we have to install xetex. If you are using debain-ubutu , you just type:

sudo apt-get install texlive-xetex
