I need the webomint font, but when I try to compile a document with it I get the following error:
! LaTeX Error: File `webomints.sty' not found.
I know that it means that LaTeX doesn't find the package, so I looked around and I found out that some fonts must be installed separately and that webomints is one of them. I tried to install them in several ways, none of which worked for me, so I tried to compile a minimal document to be sure that the problem wasn't due to other packages doing strange interactions, but nothing changed.
I tried to install the package in the following ways:
getnonfreefonts and run
sudo getnonfreefonts --sys --all and rebooted the computer but pdflatex still gave me the error. When I run
sudo getnonfreefonts --sys --lsfonts I get the following output, so I suppose that the package is installed:
me@mypc:~$ sudo getnonfreefonts --sys --lsfonts --2019-09-01 15:24:05-- https://www.tug.org/~kotucha/getnonfreefonts/getfont.pl Risoluzione di www.tug.org (www.tug.org)... 126.96.36.199 Connessione a www.tug.org (www.tug.org)|188.8.131.52|:443... connesso. [...] webomints Webomints (Galapagos Design Group) [installed]
Through "manual way"
I tried to follow the Installation instructions provided by CTAN, but I couldn't find the directory fonts/tfm/public/misc
I also followed suggestions from other Q&A posts, both from Stack Exchange and other websites, none of which worked for me. I'd like to add some links but I don't remember them; however, I just asked to Google something like "LaTeX install webomints" and so on.
I am working in Ubuntu 19.04 (Disco Digo): an OS specific answer, if necessary, would be appreciated. I have full root access, so I can do everything I have to do to make the stuff work.
Please else consider that I am quite new to both Ubuntu and LaTeX.
@daleif These is exactly what I get when I launch the commands you asked for (except for user an pc names, which I obscured):
me@mypc:~$ kpsewhich article.cls /usr/local/texlive/2019/texmf-dist/tex/latex/base/article.cls me@mypc:~$ sudo updatedb [sudo] password di me: me@mypc:~$ locate webomints.sty me@mypc:~$
locate webomints.sty does not output anything, which I suppose is not a good news...
I use TeX Live, which I installed following the instructions from tug.org and acquiring it "over the internet" (using the net install).
