I am writing a little book with the memoir class and I would love to add little table of contents at the start of each chapter. I found that I could use the minitoc package, but it doesn't seem to work. I tried mtcpatchmem.sty by importing \usepackage{mtcpatchmem} (with mtcpatchmem.sty in my root directory) but it still does not work.

Is there a solution, or workaround? If there are any workarounds, I would like it to look like the minitoc package, since I really like the style.

\documentclass{memoir}

\usepackage[utf8]{inputenc}
\usepackage[francais]{babel}
\usepackage[T1]{fontenc}

\usepackage{minitoc}

\usepackage{shorttoc}
\usepackage{lipsum}

\usepackage{libertine} %MikTeX says this is depreciated, alternative?
\renewcommand*\oldstylenums[1]{{\fontfamily{fxlj}\selectfont #1}}

\title{Hello, World}

\begin{document}
\maketitle
\newpage
\shorttableofcontents{Les Grandes Lignes}{0}
\tableofcontents

\part{Introduction}

\chapter{Merci}
This does not work.
\minitoc

\section{Contenu}
\lipsum[1]

\section{Hello}
\subsection{Bye Bye}
\end{document}

PS: I am well aware there is a similar question, but it never really had a real answer. Also, I am using MikTeX 2.9.

There is an alternative solution in the linked question using titletoc. Is there any reason why that won't work for you? –  Alan Munn Mar 31 '12 at 17:38
    
Simply, I prefer the ouput of the minitoc package. But if it's not possible, titletoc works well enough. –  bobicool Mar 31 '12 at 17:51

I don't know what the specific differences are, but surely it wouldn't be too hard to get titletoc to produce identical output? –  Alan Munn Mar 31 '12 at 17:56

As was mentioned elsewhere, there seems to be some problems with minitoc and memoir; as Alan Munn suggested, you could use titletoc instead.

In the following example I followed this approach and I defined a new command \Mprintcontents which is basically an adaptation of titletoc's \printcontents. \Mprintcontents places a nice title (controlled by \partialtocname), frames the partial toc between two horizontal rules and invokes\printcontents[chapters]{toc}{}{1}{}to buid the partial toc imitating the standard behaviour ofminitoc`:

\documentclass{memoir}
\usepackage[utf8]{inputenc}
\usepackage[francais]{babel}
\usepackage[T1]{fontenc}
\usepackage{lipsum}
\usepackage{shorttoc}
\usepackage{titletoc}
\usepackage{libertine} %MikTeX says this is depreciated, alternative?

\newcommand\partialtocname{Petite table des mati\`eres}
\newcommand\ToCrule{\noindent\rule[5pt]{\textwidth}{1.3pt}}
\newcommand\ToCtitle{{\large\bfseries\partialtocname}\vskip2pt\ToCrule}
\makeatletter
\newcommand\Mprintcontents{%
  \ToCtitle
  \ttl@printlist[chapters]{toc}{}{1}{}\par\nobreak
  \ToCrule}
\makeatother

\begin{document}

\shorttableofcontents{Les Grandes Lignes}{0}
\tableofcontents

\part{Introduction}
\chapter{Merci}
\startcontents[chapters]
\Mprintcontents

\section{Contenu}
\lipsum[1]
\section{Hello}
\stopcontents[chapters]

\chapter{Beaucoup}
\startcontents[chapters]
\Mprintcontents

\section{An Outre Contenu}
\lipsum[1]
\section{Bye}
\stopcontents[chapters]

\end{document}

Here are images of the first pages of each chapter illustrating the partial ToCs:

Of course, feel free to make the adjustments that you consider necessary.

Thanks. This works fine in the minimal working version of my document, but in my full document there seems to be some issues: i.imgur.com/38kYh.png –  bobicool Apr 1 '12 at 5:14
    
@bobicool: I think there is an issue using titletoc and hyperref together. I too got similar result as your in my document. unfortunately I do not have an answer to that. p.s.: this is a comment to bobicool's comment on Gonzalo Medina's answer. for some reason I cannot find anyway to comment on answer. need help ... –  mythealias Apr 1 '12 at 7:17
    
@mythealias You need a reputation score of 50 for making comments, see the faq. Currently you need just 5 more. This is also for preventing spam comments. Once you have a small amount of reputation, you can comment. The spammers hardly know TeX well enough get a few points. ;-) –  Stefan Kottwitz Apr 1 '12 at 10:05

I finally made it work. All I had to do was put the hyperref package at the end of my preamble. I'm not sure why, but it works. –  bobicool Apr 1 '12 at 13:39
