I'm Greek. I want to be able to type various sentences and phrases in greek in TexMaker preferably. Is there a way to do so, by installing additional packages, or configuring those already installed etc?

I had these installed

\usepackage[LGR, T1]{fontenc}

But i get many errors with the greek letters, such as "textomicron unavailable in encoding T1. See the LaTeX manual..". I have been trying many things to finally succeed in typing greek, with unfortunately no success. I can't figure it out. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks in advance.


Use babel:



This is in English, but we also have
\textgreek{μια φράση στα ελληνικά}

    or switch them round if Greek is the main language. \usepackage[english,greek]{babel} – David Carlisle Jan 10 '17 at 20:57

    @RestlessC0bra I trusted Google Translate for the Greek phrase, as I know nothing of the language, beyond the alphabet. ;-) – egreg Jan 10 '17 at 22:06
