Hi I tried to install the package by

tlmgr install dsfont

but I only get

tlmgr: package repository http://ftp.gwdg.de/pub/ctan/systems/texlive/tlnet
package dsfont not present in package repository.

I also installed the package doublestroke since I read somewhere that this package contains dsfont, but if I include dsfont I still get an error message..

Does anyone know how to help me?

On Debian based TeX distribution you can try

sudo apt-get install texlive-fonts-extra 
  • Welcome to TeX.SX! You can have a look at our starter guide to familiarize yourself further with our format. Addendum: package doublestroke would be installed with this tweak which has dsfont – texenthusiast Nov 19 '13 at 18:44

    Does anyone know how I could have found this, sans Google? apt-cache search dsfont didn't come up with anything. – user1717828 May 2 '16 at 15:49
  • @user1717828 I generally use an error message with double quotes around it. In this case it was: "! LaTeX Error: File `dsfont.sty' not found." from Anki. This was the top link. – nclark May 7 at 0:54

  • very helpful! frantically & unsuccessfully searched in my MiKTeX for doublestroke – Reinhard Neuwirth Aug 11 '15 at 19:56
  • You should add how to install it from the command line. – relG Sep 1 '17 at 12:26
  • What is the command line that you claim it contains? I think dsfont is contained in doublestroke. – relG Sep 1 '17 at 18:32
  • @relG Yes, the LaTeX package dsfont is in the TeX Live distribution package doublestroke. The file name for a LaTeX packages is the package name with extension .sty. As you can see in my answer, the file texmf-dist/tex/latex/doublestroke/dsfont.sty is part of doublestroke. Regarding the command line, I do not know your operating system, which TeX distribution is installed, and, in case of TeX Live, whether tlmgr is available (some Linux distributions omit it). Best, ask a new question with all the details and describe the problem you have. – Heiko Oberdiek Sep 1 '17 at 19:18
