I have tried the .tex file in WinEdt in Windows too. I want to run it using the KILE editor. The problem I got is showing below as log file.

This is pdfTeX, Version 3.1415926-1.40.10 (TeX Live 2009/Debian) (format=pdflatex 2014.1.17)  20 JAN 2014 16:01

How can I run the .tex file in KILE ?

What command do you use to load thesis.cls: is it a \documentclass instruction or a \usepackage instruction? –  Mico Jan 19 at 20:47
I have used these packages \documentclass[12pt,a4paper]{thesis} \usepackage{amsmath,mathtools}\usepackage{amssymb} \usepackage{graphicx} \newcommand{\specificthanks}[1]{\@fnsymbol{#1}}% Inserts a specific \thanks symbol \usepackage[left=1.25in, right=1.0in, top=1.25in, bottom=1.0in]{geometry} \newcommand{\piRsquare}{\pi r^2} –  Complex Guy Jan 19 at 20:48
Where is this file located? It is not part of a standard TeX Live installation of TeX. Did you install it manually? If so, how did you do so? –  cfr Jan 19 at 20:51
@cfr thesis.cls is standard in MiKTeX: could well be that difference. –  Joseph Wright Jan 19 at 20:53
