I have just released an updated version of europecv that implements the graphical theme released in July 2013. You can see a sample CV here and its source here. The class and all related files are hosted on github: https://github.com/leinardi/europecv2013 Normally I do not work with LaTeX (but I like to use it when I get the chance), which is why the ...

Presumably (you did not say) you are using lualatex or xelatex. These engines do not work with inputenc methods. The class seems to make assumptions about use of inputenc so it is only written for latex or pdflatex.

As you have already found out, it is a packaging error in MiKTeX, the files in doc/latex/europecv/ except europecv.pdf belong to directory tex/latex/europecv/ I have made a bug report. Update 2012-09-05, Christian Schenk has fixed the bug in MiKTeX: The bug has been fixed. The fix will be made available with the next update cycle. You can watch ...

Hard way ahead. Put this in your preamble \makeatletter \newcommand*{\ecvskype}[1]{\def\ecv@skype{#1}} \renewcommand{\ecvpersonalinfo}[1][20pt]{% & \tabularnewline[20pt] \textcolor{torea-bay}{\MakeUppercase{\ecv@infosectionkey}} & \LARGE\ecv@name\tabularnewline[10pt] \ifx\@empty\ecvdrawpicture &\else \ecv@beforepic\ecvdrawpicture\ecv@afterpic &...

Here's one possibility using the titlesec and xhfill packages: \documentclass{article} \usepackage[explicit]{titlesec} \usepackage{xhfill} \usepackage{lipsum}% just to generate text for the example \titleformat{\section} {\normalfont\Large\bfseries}{}{0em}{#1~\xrfill[0.3ex]{1.5pt}} \begin{document} \section{Education} \lipsum[4] \end{document} And ...

The class europecv simulates the form of the official Europe CV for the EU (old version before 2013. the current version can be used with class europecv2013). See more information on the homepage of europass in english. Please see that there are two versions of the europass, an older one (class euroecv, today outdated, you used it in your screenshot) and ...

A minimal example for reproducing the error is: \documentclass[hungarian]{europecv} \usepackage[T1]{fontenc} \usepackage[magyar]{babel} \begin{document} \begin{europecv} x \end{europecv} \end{document} magyar.ldf redefines \refstepcounter in a way which causes an infinite recursion here. Since you are in the lucky situation that you should not really need ...

The “error” is due to the fact that \ecv@utf is not defined as a robust command. I would be very wary of changing a class file, but if you already do, it's time to modify also line 34, to read \DeclareRobustCommand\ecv@utf[1]{{\inputencoding{utf8x}#1}} instead of \newcommand. Then your modification \textcolor{torea-bay}{\MakeUppercase{\ecv@...

You can use the commands \twocolumnand \onecolumn: \documentclass{article} \usepackage{lipsum} \begin{document} \lipsum[1] \twocolumn \lipsum[2-5] \onecolumn \lipsum[1] \end{document}

\ecvbeforepicture{\raggedleft}} Maybe you need an addition \vspace*{-...}

The width of the table is limited to the document margin (as you see in the image bellow) So you need to increase the right margin (or avoid using that table altogether). The former solution works by adding \usepackage[right=3cm]{geometry}

\documentclass[utf8,helvetica,narrow,booktabs]{europecv} \usepackage{graphicx} \usepackage[T1]{fontenc} \usepackage[right=2.5cm]{geometry} % language table impossible otherwise \begin{document} \begin{europecv} \ecvsection{Personal Skills} \ecvmothertongue[0.5cm]{Finnish} Other Languages & \large English, German and French\tabularnewline[...

The class europecv says \DeclareOption{utf8}{\AtEndOfClass{\inputencoding{utf8x}}} which is a very big mistake. At the time the class was first released, utf8 didn't support direct input with Greek, which was the main reason for using utf8x. Since some years, utf8 does support Greek, so there's no reason for keeping the option in that way. However, for ...

\ecvpersonalinfo doesn't use the regular \ecvsection to set another section. Instead you'll have to tap into the Personal Information section macro to change the colour. The following minimal code does exactly that: \usepackage[dvipsnames]{xcolor} \makeatletter \let\old@ecv@infosectionkey\ecv@infosectionkey% Copy \ecv@infosectionkey \renewcommand{\ecv@...

To modify the margins you have to add this piece of code. \documentclass[english]{ecv} \usepackage{geometry} \geometry{ a4paper, total={210mm,297mm}, left=20mm, right=20mm, top=20mm, bottom=20mm, } You have to change the values of left, right, top and bottom as you want to modify the margins. I hope that it helps you, good luck!

Adding the package label does not correct the error, it merely causes another error before you encounter the original error. In fact, the label package does not exist on CTAN as of writing. The error you reported is actually the second error reported by LaTeX. The first error (the one you should be looking at) is: ! Undefined control sequence. \...

If you want to use parcolumns, here's a minimal example which you can customise (just to show that (a) it can be done with parcolumns and (b) with the syntax you described): \documentclass{article} \usepackage{parcolumns} \newcommand\cvfield[2]{\colchunk{\textsc{#1}}\colchunk{#2}% \colplacechunks} \begin{document} \begin{parcolumns}[colwidths={1=4cm},...

The most simple solution that comes to mind is just putting different pdf together using package pdfpages. With version 3.15 of KOMA-Script, which is available at the develepors homepage, it is possible to include features of a letter within the other KOMA-classes. We have seen in the past, that europecv has some limitations. An alternative could be ...
