I use the europecv class and I'd like to use my biblatex bibliographies inside. It turns out that europecv needs the ucs package which is incompatible.

Any idea how to deal with this problem?

neither the biblatex nor the europecv manual do offer a solution – louis cypher Oct 11 '12 at 10:46

The scrlfile package (part of KOMA-Script) features, among other things, a \PreventPackageFromLoading macro that does exactly what its name suggests. You may use it to prevent the ucs and inputenc packages being loaded by europecv. After the class is loaded, we redefine its internal command \ecv@utf so that utf8 really means utf8, lift the ban on package loading and issue \usepackage[uft8]{inputenc}.









  author = {Author, A.},
  year = {2001},
  title = {Alpha},

Works like a charm! Thanks a lot. – louis cypher Oct 12 '12 at 11:52
