I downloaded this template from the internet, but now I don't get it to run properly. Can someone with more experience give me a hand? I think it is something small, but I can't figure it out.

The example runs smoothly once I remove all references to the Fontin font (that I don't have). Can you give a hint about what doesn't work for you? –  egreg Apr 2 '13 at 16:54

Like @egreg, I changed all the font references to Arial and it runs OK (though the result isn't very pretty). Do your error messages refer to missing fonts? If not, perhaps you could post a couple here. –  Brent.Longborough Apr 2 '13 at 17:00

@Krijn Saw your comment after posting my answer; can you add the output of XeLaTeX to your question? Thanks. –  Sam Whited Apr 2 '13 at 17:33

1 Answer 1

Make sure you have Helvetica and FontIn installed (or change all references to these fonts in the example).

Also, ensure that you have the xunicode, xltxtra, url, parskip, xcolor, layaureo, hyperref, titlesec, and fontspec packages installed.

If you're using TeX Live you can install extra packages by running tlmgr install packagename. Otherwise, you can learn about installing packages from the LaTeX Wikibook.

The example worked fine for me, so I can only assume you're missing one of these dependencies. Posting the output of XeLaTeX would help us diagnose the problem more accurately.
