I have to submit my thesis tomorrow and al of a suddon do not get any pagenumbers for any but the first page of the chapters. Anybody out there who can help me? I fear I do not have time to build a mwe sadly.

Preamble settings:

\usepackage{array} %tabularx needs array!

\usepackage{xr} %allow external references
\usepackage{eso-pic} %exact placement of figures

\usepackage[below]{placeins} %prevents floats of getting over a FloatBarrier
\usepackage[LabelsAligned]{currvita} %we need this for the integrated cv in the appendix

My system is Debian wheezy and TeX Live 2011.

Please create a MWE (minimal working example) with the relevant packages. First of all -- Did you try \pagestyle{headings} – Marco Daniel May 6 '12 at 20:10
I would love to, but I have to finish my thesis until 16:00 tomorrow. §00 pages of reading editing and fixing references. Sorry. Might it be related to a previous pagestyle empty? I'll give it a try – louis cypher May 6 '12 at 22:11
You are lucky that you are not here. Otherwise I would kiss you ;-) I would never have found that in time. Please make an answer out of your comment. I had to deactivate the \pagestyle{empty} by a \pagestyle{heading} on the next page of course – louis cypher May 6 '12 at 22:26

scrbook defines different pagestyle for special pages. For example chapter.


If only page numbers are printed at chapter pages I guess you have the command \pagestyle{empty} somewhere in your document.

Based on this guess you can use \pagestyle{headings} to set the header and footer for "normal" text pages in your document.

I met the similar problem. I solved it by adding the following lines after every /chapter{}

\pagestyle{myheadings} \markboth{}{}
