I am trying to set my paper's style to Book Antiqua. I am using this script:


But i get this error: ! LaTeX Error: File `antiqua.sty' not found. Type X to quit or to proceed, or enter new name. (Default extension: sty)

How can I fix it? Thanks

  • you have to install/update the missing package called antiqua.sty into your LaTeX distribution. You can refer this tex.stackexchange.com/questions/523283/… (or) tex.stackexchange.com/questions/523283/…

  • There was an antiqua.sty among the support files for using the FontSite 500 CD (fontsite.com), a collection which seems no longer available.

  • Dear @rakatex, how can I do that? I am using teXworks and mikTex, but I am not good at it. ps. you linked twice the same question May 20, 2020 at 23:14
  • If you took your sample code from the LaTeX Font Catalogue, then the package you need to download and install is at ctan.org/tex-archive/fonts/psfonts/urwvf (this is different from the old FontSite package).
