In my *.cls class file I loaded


(does the order of the two matter?)

and get the following error message: Command \texteuro unavailable in encoding T1.

  • Why can't I insert the EURO € symbol?
  • Do I need to to load a special package, e.g. eurosym?
  • Can I just type it plainly, or do I need to wrap it in TeX-code?

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

HEre are some tips on typesetting the euro symbol: tex.stackexchange.com/questions/9866/… (possible duplicate?) – Matthew Leingang Apr 17 '13 at 16:27
thx! I was googling the error message (see my question) and it returned no entries on SX... I'll take a look at that € thread. – nutty about natty Apr 17 '13 at 16:32
@nuttyaboutnatty Make sure to also use the site’s search function. A simple search for euro symbol would’ve sufficed. – doncherry Apr 17 '13 at 17:06
@doncherry it's not where I searched but for what I searched: I was after the error message (which now, thx to this duplicate, will be found). – nutty about natty Apr 17 '13 at 17:41

Some fonts do not have euro symbol. To allow TeX to construct a fake one for this case, just add the line


or, in a .cls file
