How should the tex file for this project (dowload zip) be compiled?

I use TeXLive 2011 and texmakerx22b12_win32 for editing.

I have found it in this post.

Please make this question more specific. What happens when you try to compile the document? – Jake Jul 17 '12 at 11:48
As the post says: It had been created with xetex (xelatex). – Ulrike Fischer Jul 17 '12 at 11:52
One error is: The fontspec package requires either XeTeX or LuaTeX to function }. And every now and says he does not find the log file.. I have see "It had been created with xetex (xelatex)" but i'm new latex user and I have no idea how to set it. – FormlessCloud Jul 17 '12 at 11:59
In TeXstudio, try going to User--> User commands --> Edit User commands, write e.g. XeLaTeX as "menu item", and add xelatex -synctex=1 -interaction=nonstopmode %.tex in the command field. Compile the document with this, i.e. User --> User commands --> XeLaTeX. – Torbjørn T. Jul 17 '12 at 13:02
Thanks! i go to try. Also i need this github.com/downloads/georgd/EB-Garamond/EBGaramond-0.014c.zip font, right? one times that i have downloaded where i must put it? – FormlessCloud Jul 17 '12 at 13:22

Some time ago, I switched to LuaTeX and added a Makefile, so what you need is:

Type make and it should work (you can open an issue on github if it doesn't, describing your issue).
