    Pdflatex: Arial 10pt?

    Hello,

    My goal is to format the document with arial 11pt font.

    I am wondering if it is normal that I still get times with 11pt.

    I have this file into the folder to compile wiht pdflatex
    http://mirrors.ctan.org/macros/latex...nfss/arial.sty


    Code:
    %
    \documentclass[11pt,a4paper,fleqn]{article}
    \usepackage{arial}
    
    \pagestyle{empty}
    \mathindent 7.5mm
     \begin{document}
    
       hello world! \\
    
     \end{document}
    But still I get Times and not Arial.

    Same results with pdflatex and miktex. Any ideas?

    thanks in advance

    Hi honeybear.

    Try installing the texlive-xetex package
    Code:
    sudo apt-get install texlive-xetex
    Then you can include
    Code:
    \usepackage{fontspec}
    \setmainfont{Arial}
    In your preamble before \begin{document}, and you should be good to go!

    I made it with familyfonts

    however I cannot change into a doc the font size. It is defined in doc class at beginning for all doc.
