How to fix caption in moderncv?

I'm using moderncv and I want to add a caption to an inserted graphic. I'm currently using this code

\begin{minipage}{.5\textwidth}
\centering
\includegraphics[width=0.5\textwidth]{fixed_button_settings.png}
\captionof{figure}{Some figure}
\end{minipage}


and this is the result

For further notice, this line of code

\captionof{figure}{Some figure}


results in an error: Package caption Error: No float type 'figure' defined.

I have added this in the main.tex preamble

\usepackage{float}
\usepackage{caption}


What should I do to make the caption appear as: "Figur 1: Some figure"? ("Figur" is not a typo, it's Swedish.)

Your problem is that class moderncv has no floating environment figure implemented. So you have two possibilities:

1. copy all the code needed for figure into an own local new class mymoderncv.cls or
2. do not use figure and make it by your own. You can use minipage, and write the heading by your own, because in a cv you need no list of figures, I guess?

A solution for point 2 could be (I used the image from package mwe, that must be installed, but must not be loaded):

\documentclass[%
11pt
,a4paper
,sans
]{moderncv}

\moderncvstyle{classic}
\moderncvcolor{blue}

\usepackage[scale=0.75]{geometry}
%\usepackage[english,ngerman]{babel}
