The MacTeX distribution is a full TeX Live distribution, and as such should contain almost any package you are likely to use (essentially everything in CTAN that has a verified free licence.) However, it's possible that when you first installed MacTeX you chose to install the small version called BasicTeX, which does not install everything. In principle, ...

I have removed the program (MiKTex 2.9) and installed it again. And now it works. Sorry for not trying it, I hope this info would help someone.

As far as I know, such a directory (I guess it corresponds to the style/class files from your university) cannot be installed directly under a root. It should be in <root>\tex\latex\TUD. And the <root> should not be C:\Program Files\MiKTeX 2.9, but preferably in some local TeX root that respects the TDS architecture, e.g. ...

So there are two ways of solving the problem. The cleanest is to delete the TeX distribution installed by your package manager, using your package manager. If you use a dedicated editor for TeX or a plugin which is TeX-specific, your package manager may not let you do this due to dependencies. In that case, the best solution is to install a "dummy" package ...

Following what you've done in the previous thread, now the contents of the file additions.reg has to be: Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00 [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\.dvi] @="MiKTeX.dvi.2.9" [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\MiKTeX.dvi.2.9] @="DVI File" [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\MiKTeX.dvi.2.9\DefaultIcon] @="C:\\Program Files\\MiKTeX 2.9\\miktex\\bin\\x64\\yap.exe,1" ...

Even though the OP has indicated a reluctance to switch from pdfLaTeX to LuaLaTeX so close to the submission deadline, I'll offer the following method anyway, as it's really not that difficult to implement: % !TEX TS-program = lualatex \documentclass[11pt]{article} \usepackage{fontspec} \setmainfont[Ligatures=TeX]{EB Garamond} % Remainder of document same ...

For the scrartcl class and others in this family, the default is not to set the paper size infomation in the output file, just to set the LaTeX lengths; under pdflatex the output file then gets the dimensions of the system default. This can be changed by adding the option pagesize to the documentclass. For example, choosing a non-standard size: ...

Download the required package online (for e.g. on CTAN). If it's zipped, unzip the archive to a place where it's easily accessible such as your desktop. Open a terminal (ctrl+alt+t) and type: sudo nautilus Hit enter and type in your password and confirm with enter. This will open a window in which you have administrator-rights, meaning you can copy or move ...

According to this post Are itemize and EBGaramond compatible? there is a bug in EBGaramond. Using the code @egreg posted in his answer, you can fix your example like this: \documentclass[11pt]{article} \usepackage{ifluatex,ifxetex} \ifluatex\else\ifxetex\else \usepackage[T1]{fontenc} \usepackage[utf8]{inputenc} \fi\fi \usepackage{ebgaramond} ...

Looking into http://mirrors.dotsrc.org/ctan/systems/win32/miktex/tm/packages/ I see there is savesym archived as savesym.tar.lzma, but according to your log file the (older) CAB version was requested. For the reason I can only guess, that this mirror was not up to date some days ago (it is now). So some general hints: You can check whether your selected ...

I assume you have a <texmf-local>/doc/writer2latex directory, where, say, writer2latex.pdf resides. In this case, the heuristics built in texdoc will open this file when texdoc writer2latex is issued. If you want to call it with another name, create a file <texmf-local>/texdoc/texdoc.cnf where you can add the line alias w2l = ...

You are using the stand-alone-version of ConTeXt? Under windows, the standard installer is a .bat-file, not a .sh-file. You can run the windows-installer like this: first-setup.bat --modules=all as described here: http://wiki.contextgarden.net/ConTeXt_Standalone#Command_line_method You find it in the root directory of ConTeXt, one level higher the ...

For me this was also a problem with the PATH-variable. Go to environmental variables, search for PATH and add at the end: ;C:\Windows\system32. The semicolon is important as it separates the entries. You can test it by typing cmd into the console. If it works (and you had the same problem like me), tlmgr may now update properly. Restart the console after ...

On Debian based TeX distribution you can try sudo apt-get install texlive-fonts-extra

as of now (november 2013), testing of the beta of the latex support for the stix fonts is well along. some work is needed on the fonts themselves, and i'm not sure when it will be ready for final release. however, i'm optimistic that it can happen before tex live 2014 is frozen. the fonts and supporting package will certainly be uploaded to ctan as soon ...

Thank you again to everyone for their input above. Credit for resolving what proved to be quite a specific problem goes to author of the 'chemstyle' package himself, Joseph Wright. An old version of 'caption.sty' was hidden in a template package installed in the root texmf tree - simply deleting this allowed correct compilation of all test files. The ...

You can use LyX without LaTeX. You just won't be able to compile to PDF, which I think your collaborator is OK with.

The editor (TeXMaker) is irrelevant to the question. In MiKTeX settings, if you chose "Install missing packages on the fly", it means that MiKTeX will do automatic installation for any file requested during compilation that is in its file name database. More clearly, if you're running (pdf|xe|lua)(la)tex etc., and the engine tries to load a file that is ...

OK. I'm assuming that your ConTeXt setup is fully working (if it doesn't work from the command line don't expect to get it working from within WinEdt...). I'm also assuming that you have one of the latest builds of WinEdt 6, being 20110315 the last (it may not work with earlier versions). Copy the file ConTeXt.edt from the directory %B\Exec\TeX to the ...

I converted the fonts from Linux format to Windows format using the information here. After converting the fonts from Linux format I just copied those files to my Windows machine.

As far as I can see there are four different cases. The first three cases concern fonts with direct LaTeX support (there are packages) with different licenses, while the fourth addresses fonts without direct LaTeX support, no matter how they are licensed: a) Free fonts in the TL repository like xcharter On a well maintained, recent distribution like ...

You can get support for compiling with pdfTeX and IvriTeX Hebrew fonts by using install-tl-ubuntu. Just run the following command: sudo ./install-tl-ubuntu --hebrew Before you do that, you should remove whichever LaTeX installation you currently have (by default it installs a full TeX Live 2013 distribution). See ./install-tl-ubuntu --help for more ...
