I am doing something which seems to require the availability of
the "inconsolata" font. (I won't go into details on the "something" --- it
involves the R statistical package and converting R document ion "*.Rd"
files to *.tex files and then processing these to create *.pdf files. I
into more detail if it seems to be relevant.)
I googled around a bit and found some advice which first indicated that I
needed to have "texlive" installed. Apparently I didn't have this ---
acquired a new laptop and a new Linux system, Fedora 17 which I am still
trying to configure to my satisfaction. (In the past I have used
had to switch, for reasons that I won't go into.)
Anyhow I did
sudo yum install texlive
and that seemed to work OK. The advice then said I had to do:
sudo yum install texlive-inconsolata, texlive-inconsolata-font
but this resulted in the message:
> No package texlive-inconsolata, available.
> No package texlive-inconsolata-font available.
Can someone please give me some (simple?) explicit recipe for getting
the inconsolata font installed on my machine?
