auto-greek package

Postby vrathi13 » Sun Jan 03, 2016 2:44 pm

During the past few days I've been trying (unsuccessfully) to install the auto-greek package to my PC.

Mainly I used this site for guidance&material

The question is how am I going to install the auto-greek package to my system?
(I mean I have downloade various .afm .pfb files etc + an installer.But I dont know which directory to put them , or how to make my miktex "aware" of them.I'm sorry I cant get more specific)
(I have miktex 2.9.5721 & windows7 32-bit service pack1)

I bet you want to write greek and english in the same document. Use xelatex or lualatex and babel or polyglossia for the right hyphenation patterns. Do not use package auto-greek.
The smart way: Calm down and take a deep breath, read posts and provided links attentively, try to understand and ask if necessary.

Thanks for the response.

Yes that is exactly what I want to do, write both in greek and in english in the same document, but without using the commands \greektext \latintext.

If you mean going to my texeditor and configuring my default compiler to be Xelatex or Lualatex , I have already tried that several times unsuccessfully.

What I haven't tried yet is polyglossia though.
I am going at it right now.

Thanks again.

Hi vrathi,

did it work for you, with polyglossia? Or in another way? It would be great if you would post a small compilable example, either as a working example so we would learn the solution, or showing the problem to test and to verify it.
