I'm using the enumitem package, by typing \usepackage{enumitem} in the preamble, so when I compile my PDF two pop-up pages appear in order to install it. I click on "Install" for both however then the following error occurs:

LaTeX Error: File `enumitem.sty' not found.

If I try it again I get the same result. I've also tried it with the cancel package to no avail as well.

How can I effectively install this package for usage?

  • That is hard to say when you give us no information about what kind of LaTeX system you are using. MikTeX? TeXLive? Windows, Mac or Linux? – daleif Dec 3 '18 at 16:02
  • Windows, and MikTeX package manager. I'm using Knitr in case it's relevant. – zest16 Dec 3 '18 at 16:31
  • Then use the package manager to install the missing packages. Normally MikTeX gives you a popup asking you if you want it to install it for you, but running LaTeX from within Knitr might block this popup. So either install the package using the package manager or try compiling the generated LaTeX file manually instead of having knitr doing it for you. – daleif Dec 3 '18 at 16:37
  • Thanks. Now when I install the package using the packing manager there's another "MiKTeX Problem Report" pop-up which reads =get host by name failed in tcp.connect(). – zest16 Dec 3 '18 at 16:52
  • Pas, i don't use miktex, so cannot help, try googling that error – daleif Dec 3 '18 at 18:11
