I recently downloaded Jaxodraw for the purpose of constructing Feynman diagrams. My issue is that whenever I export the code in LaTeX I receive the following error:

File `pstricks.sty' not found. \usepackage

I tried configuring my compiler to use XeLaTeX, but I am still receiving the error.

Here is the code I would like to compile:







        \begin{picture}(386,128) (111,-184)


Any advice on how to resolve this error is appreciated.

  • that is an editor not a tex system. Do you use texlive or miktex? Oct 10, 2021 at 20:08
  • Oh, sorry. It's TeX Live.

  • in texlive you should be able to install pstricks with tlmgr install pstricks (assuming that you have a vanilla texlive, if you have one from a linux distro you should check which tex packages it offers) Oct 10, 2021 at 20:17

You do not need pstricks for your example. Don't load that package!
