Linux defaults to A4 paper size rather than letter. The only answer I found online was to run
pdflatex with the
$ pdflatex -t letter myfile.tex
but I get the error:
warning: Could not open char translation file `letter.tcx'.
The first line of my file is
because I'm using someone else's template, found here: http://www.terpconnect.umd.edu/~briankw/resources/resume.cls.
How can I make 8.5x11 inch pdf's with latex, and still use this template?
