# Lines Numbers with mdframed [duplicate]

This question already has an answer here:

Am looking for an elegant way to include line numbers in my mdframed documents. Unfortunately, the following produces a 85 page docuement with \linenumbers (either before or after the \begin{mdframed}. Document is only 4 pages without the \linenumbers.

## References:

• Am ok with a post processing solution, but was not able to get Jake's solution from Add page and line numbers to a pdf to work. And yes I know that saying "it doesn't work" does not help to figure out what the problem is -- might post a separate question, but thought that using lineno package would be easier.

## Code:

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage{lineno}
\usepackage{mdframed}
\usepackage{tikz}
\usepackage{lipsum}
\begin{document}
\begin{mdframed}\linenumbers
\lipsum
\begin{tikzpicture}
\draw [fill=yellow!25] (0,0) rectangle (3,4);
\end{tikzpicture}
\lipsum
\end{mdframed}
\end{document}

Is this of any help? –  Jubobs Apr 5 '13 at 8:31
@Jubobs: Yeah I saw that question, but that seems more of a method of manually adding line numbers. I need an automated solution. –  Peter Grill Apr 5 '13 at 8:54
Have you tried recycling some code for line numbering from the algorithm2e package? –  Jubobs Apr 5 '13 at 9:01
@Jubobs: No have not, but sure if that would work, as the solution I need needs to work with TeX's line breaking algorithm, and I think those packages have their own. –  Peter Grill Apr 5 '13 at 9:05
The issue isn't related to mdframed. A similar question with minipage can be found here: tex.stackexchange.com/questions/103163/… –  Marco Daniel Apr 5 '13 at 17:25
