I've been using LaTeX for almost four years now, so one could perhaps think I would know how to do this. But I don't. I'm at a complete loss here trying to get
latexmk and, eventually,
BibTeX to work.
I'm on a Windows using
TeXWorks. I tried following this example, but with no luck. The issue is the last part - I've tried running it through
pdflatex a couple of more times by simply changing in the drop-down menu. So I've been trying to get
latexmk to work, but most guides lose me right away.
I tried following the installation instructions, but realized Perl wasn't installed. So I installed Strawberry Perl. I didn't find
C:\local\bin so I put the files somewhere else and did step 4. Typing in
perl --version returns perl 5, version 18. By a similar check,
latexmk is also installed (which may or may not be because I installed it via the Package Update thing in
I then run
latexmk paper latexmk -pv paper latexmk -pv -ps paper
and the last line just pops up a window saying no program was found to open the file. So I try
ps2pdf paper.ps paper.pdf
but then there are no citations but only question marks.
Then I also found this guide which would be neat to get working. But I don't know where to find
latexmk, and I don't know where to find where to find it either!
Maybe I explained my issue in too much detail, but for what it's worth I've at least tried to solve it on my own. Any help to get this working would be greatly appreciated.
