pdfpages.sty not found

Postby thilinihnd » Wed Jan 15, 2020 10:08 am

I'm using MIktex2.9 and I want to add a separate pdf page to my thesis. I installed the pdfpages package using the Miktex package installer. It installed successfully. I can see the pdfpages.sty in Miktex2.9/tex/latex/pdfpages forlder.
However when I try to use this package using \usepackage{padfpages}, it gives the following error.

LaTeX Error: File `padfpages.sty' not found.

Can someone help me to find why I get this error?

Thanks.

If you have copied the command and the message from your original file and log, the reason is simple: The name of the installed package is pdfpages not padfpages. So you should change \usepackage{padfpages} into \usepackage{pdfpages} (or install a package named padfpages, but CTAN does not have such a package).

Oops.., what a silly mistake. Thank you for pointing it out.

Hi thilinihnd,

welcome to the forum!

Simple typing mistake :-) can easily happen. It's good anyway when there's an easy solution!

But mainly I wanted to say welcome, here.
