I'm running Ubuntu 12.04 LTS and Kile for LaTeX document editing. I would like to use the
media9 package to embed videos and 3D objects (via
.u3d files) in a PDF document. I'm totally new in the LaTeX world. So I'm not familiar with package installation with Kile. Is there anyone who could help me to install the media9 package please?
- run in terminal window:
sudo apt-get install texlive cm-super gv spdf kile -y=> At this stage no problem!
media9 installation :
download the file: http://tug.ctan.org/tex-archive/install/macros/latex/contrib/media9.tds.zip
run the command in the terminal:
kpsewhich -var-value TEXMFLOCAL--> terminal output:
unzip it in media.tds.zip in
sudo texhash--> terminal output:
texhash: Updating /usr/local/share/texmf/ls-R...
texhash: Updating /var/lib/texmf/ls-R-TEXMFMAIN...
texhash: Updating /var/lib/texmf/ls-R-TEXLIVE...
texhash: Updating /var/lib/texmf/ls-R...
Moreover ls-R file seems to be well updated since it includes a lot of media9 stuff.
Then when compiling my
.tex document an error message occurs saying:
media9.sty is not found
I tried a lot of tricks I found on the internet. I installed
texlive-latex-extra-doc and some other packages. Finally
media9 isn't missing anymore, but now
expl3 is not found!!
texlive-latex3. It seemed to solve the problem, but now
l3regex.sty is not found! Endless problems....
At this address I found the list of required packages for
media9. After installing all these packages,
media9 should be running, am I right ? Could anyone please indicate which files to install relative to these packages? When installing
texlive-full will I be able to run
Any help would be highly appreciated :)
