I have copied the code from How to write Bengali in LaTeX? .

When I paste it in my KILE editor its not working. Even I have inserted it on https://www.writelatex.com/656918hxmjxx#/1381658/
but it is showing compile error. How to solve this?

sudo apt-get install ttf-bengali-fonts

From above I have installed the code.

When I run the problem is showing:

Make sure you are compiling with XeLaTeX; pdfTeX has many limitations concerning Unicode. Also ensure you have the Akaash and Linux Biolinum O fonts installed on your computer. Arial Unicode MS is installed on OSX: i.stack.imgur.com/qMJ42.png –  Sean Allred Jan 16 at 17:06
    
Please post the error you are getting. You can find errors in the log file (created in the same directory as your TeX file). Errors are indicated with lines that start with !, so find the first error that you get and post it. –  Sean Allred Jan 16 at 18:42
    
The sty file is part of the standard distribution; please post the relevant portion of your log file. –  Sean Allred Jan 16 at 18:47
    
log file has been attached. –  Complex Guy Jan 16 at 18:52
    
@ComplexGuy As Sean Allred pointed out, you need to compile with XeLaTeX - that log shows that you are trying to compile with pdfTeX. Also, it strongly suggests that there is something amiss with your installation of TeX or your configuration since, as has also been said, etoolbox is standard. How did you install TeX exactly? –  cfr Jan 16 at 22:22

The log file is telling you that polyglossia needs etoolbox to work. You appear to not have etoolbox installed:

! LaTeX Error: File `etoolbox.sty' not found.

Type X to quit or <RETURN> to proceed,
or enter new name. (Default extension: sty)

Enter file name: 
! Emergency stop.

I would take a look at How to install "vanilla" TeXLive on Debian or Ubuntu? to ensure you have a full TeX Live distribution. If you don't mind being several iterations behind the current state of CTAN, you can run

sudo apt-get install texlive-full

to get (mostly) everything. It should at least come with the tools you need to get this document compiling.


Make sure you are compiling with XeLaTeX; pdfTeX has many limitations concerning Unicode. I don't have Kile installed, but this suggestion from the TUG mailing list will be helpful:

Configure Kile -> tools -> new -> create some name -> behaviour like pdflatex -> change command into "xelatex"


Also ensure you have the Akaash and Linux Biolinum O fonts installed on your computer.

Arial Unicode MS is installed on OSX:

\documentclass[10pt]{article}
\usepackage{polyglossia}
\setmainlanguage[numerals=Devanagari]{bengali}
\setotherlanguage{english}
\newfontfamily\bengalifont[Script=Bengali]{Arial Unicode MS}
\begin{document}
\tableofcontents

\section{ভূমিকা}
এটি একটি ইংরেজি লেখা ছোট অধ্যায় যে বাঙ্গালী এ \textenglish{Google Translate}
দ্বারা অনুবাদ করা হয়েছে. এটা খুব স্পষ্ট নয় যদি সঠিক অনুবাদ বা না কিন্তু ক্রিয়াটি ফন্ট দেখাতে যথেষ্ট হওয়া উচিত.
\end{document}

Find out which fonts Aptitude installed for you and use one of those in Arial's place.

Not working can you see the image I attached please. –  Complex Guy Jan 16 at 18:38
    
Yeah… that means nothing to me. No error is even shown. See my additional comment on your original question. –  Sean Allred Jan 16 at 18:41
    
when I run a .sty file file is appeared. I have inserted in the question box. –  Complex Guy Jan 16 at 18:46
    
@ComplexGuy See my edit. –  Sean Allred Jan 16 at 18:56
    
I have installed the total texlive you mentioned by sudo apt-get install texlive-full and a blank out page is appeared. What to do? What is the error in the log filke ! Cannot use \XeTeXOTfeaturetag with nullfont; not an OpenType Layout font. \iterate ...ifnum \XeTeXOTfeaturetag \zf@basefont \c@zf@script \c@zf@languag... l.7 ...tfamily\bengalifont[Script=Bengali]{Akaash} !
