I am trying to use the moderntimeline package for moderncv but pdflatex is giving me errors. All .sty files are stock. Here is a simple code that produces the error for me.




\tllabelcventry[magenta]{2002}{2003}{July--November 2002}{Scribus Student}{GNU School}{The Internet}{}{Tried Scribus for a short while}

The error from the log reads ! Package PGF Math Error: Unknown function 'ifthenelse'.

Here's what the PDF looks like:

Welcome to TeX.sx! I suspect a problem with file versions. Your example works for me. What TeX distribution are you using? – egreg Dec 22 '12 at 16:41
Please add command \listfiles before \documentclass ... in your MWE and check the log file. Please add the list of used packages in your question. Your MWE runs on my MiKTeX 2.9 system without any errors ... – Kurt Dec 22 '12 at 18:09
I am using 'pdfTeX, Version 3.1415926-1.40.10 (TeX Live 2009/Debian)' The list of packages was too long to paste into comment. Anything in particular I should be looking at in this log? Thanks! – Tekle Dec 22 '12 at 21:50
May be you should consider upgrading to texlive 2012. – Harish Kumar Dec 22 '12 at 22:55
This is clearly a version issue, which makes it 'too localized' (in time) as updating will fix it. – Joseph Wright Jan 5 '13 at 21:08
