tengtex

Postby isenhand » Sun Jan 08, 2023 10:34 am

I'm trying to use tengtex but get the following error:

! LaTeX Error: Environment elvish undefined.

I assume that means I did something wrong with the install?

I have the mf files in /usr/share/texlive/texmf-dist/fonts/source/public/tengwar/

and the sty file in /usr/share/texlive/texmf-dist/tex/latex/tengtex/

Any ideas how to fix this?

Thanks.

Hi,

welcome to the forum!

Did you load the package? Like here from an old post by me:

\documentclass[a4paper,10pt]{scrartcl}
\usepackage{tengtex}
\begin{document}
\quenya
\jcb
\begin{elvish}
  Sauron ataltane 3019sse.
\end{elvish}
\end{document}

I use this :

\usepackage{allrunes}

Then when I want the text in elvish, I use :

\begin{elvish}\quenya ... \end{elvish}.

A bit different to what you have but they way I have it did work once upon a time (this is an old document I am revisiting).

Perhaps post a complete small example to check, as I did in my previous post.
