I'm new with TeX and Linux, but I want to learn to use it.
I found an open source TeX file from here and I want to be able to compile from the
cv.tex file to
cv.pdf. After searching around, I found pdfLaTeX seems to be what I was looking for. However, using the command line, it gives me the error of
XeTeX is required to compile this document. I do have XeTeX and when I try to use XeTeX, it gives me the error of
Undefined control sequence.
Since I am new to Linux and googling increases my confusion, I decided to use TeXWorks which is an IDE I hope will have all the dependencies to compile the
.tex file to PDF. Upon launching, I believe the "compiler" was set to pdfLaTeX and I click on the "green play button" and it did create a new window with the right content on it. I was ecstatic. I started modifying the
.tex file, "save" and hit the "green button" again but this time I get the same errors as when I do it through the command line. I get
XeTeX required when I use pdfLaTeX and
Undefined control sequence when I use XeTeX.
Can someone please guide me to the right path?
Additional info: If I close TeXworks and open it again, I can the original output
cv.pdf on another window however, it does not include my changes to
cv.tex. I also tried XeLaTeX and it does not compile correctly.
The error I get when use XeLaTeX is:
LaTeX error file: unicode-math.sty not found
