pandoc and would like to change the awful default font when I convert a .MD to a .PDF.
I understand I can pass
-V on the command line and that
--pdf-engine=pdflatex by default. I would like to change the font family to
https://tug.org/FontCatalogue/clearsans/. I try:
pandoc -V fontfamily="ANYTHING" test.md -o test.pdf
and just get
Error producing PDF. ! LaTeX Error: File `ANYTHING.sty' not found.
I am reading about different engines, which don't seem to be installed. I can look at a config file that is total mumbo-jumbo.
Can I just list what fonts or font family's are available and choose one on the command line?
texlive on Centos 8 and it installed a lot... but there seems still more packages. It seems a lot of work to change a font!
tex --version TeX 3.14159265 (TeX Live 2018) kpathsea version 6.3.0
also I see included in the install were:
