# Myanmar (Burmese) line breaking with XeLaTeX

I am having trouble getting Myanmar text to break at the end of lines properly. The previous question How do I wrap text that doesn't use SPACE character to segment word would appear to solve my problem. However, it is not working for me.

I am on Linux Mint. XeTeX version is 0.9995.

Here is what my document looks like (font source: Padauk SIL Font):

\documentclass{article} % save as utf-8, run with xelatex
\usepackage{fontspec}
\XeTeXlinebreaklocale "my"
\XeTeXlinebreakskip = 0pt plus 0.1pt

\begin{document}

Running this through XeLaTeX, I get an error: Undefined control sequence \XeTeXlinebreaklocale, etc.. It appears that the compiler knows nothing about the \XeTeXlinebreaklocale - do I need to include some additional package? If I remove the \XeTeXlinebreaklocale and \XeTeXlinebreakskip lines, my document compiles very nicely... with Myanmar text breaking only on spaces (but, unfortunately, not even on zero width spaces).
 Welcome to TeX.sx! The post you're linking to mentions \XeTeXlinebreaklocale, with an e at the end. Is that the issue? (I can't test because I don't have the font Padauk.) – doncherry Oct 28 '12 at 16:32 No, that's not it. Sorry about the typo though. – Ben Sharon Oct 28 '12 at 16:41 @BenSharon When responding to another user's comment, don't forget to address them with @username so that they'll get a notification.
