    I'm trying to make the following command work:

    \nmid

    It doesn't work at all. I found other old threads over the net about people also having the same problem, but no response to those thread! Hopefully this one gets a response.

    The following packages are in use...

    \usepackage{latexsym}
    \usepackage{amsfonts}
    \usepackage{amsthm}
    \usepackage{amsmath}

    Does not work.

    Works for me, but check this out. It DOESN'T show the correct symbol in the preview plane (I'm using LeD) but when i build the pdf it works correctly. Are you looking at the pdf?

    Try to add \usepackage{amssymb}.

    ah yes, i was also using the assymb sty. Again though, make sure you're actually looking at the final product. For some reason most DVI previewers use a different set of fonts than the ones used in the compiler and loaded by the document.
