Download the tds.zip https://sourceforge.net/projects/pgf/files/latest/download?source=files Unpack the zip file somewhere outside your miktex system. Then add the root folder as a new root in miktex settings. When pgf is available throught the package manager you can simple remove the root in miktex settings again.

Short Answer: This isn't an error or anything wrong with your settings. You're just using an operating system that doesn't support makeglossaries's preferred method of running makeindex/xindy so it uses a platform independent approach instead. The next version of glossaries (4.04) will include a new version of makeglossaries (2.14) that will have a new -Q ...

In revision 4975 of TeX Live (2007-09-18) we find the annotation omit ubbold.fd from jknapltx, clash with Ubbold.fd + sauter bbold disfunctional? (Zdenek Wagner, 9 Aug 2007 16:20:21 +0200) So my suggestion is to remove the file ubbold.fd from your system and file a bug report to MiKTeX's maintainer.

As I said in a comment, with the current CTAN version of luamplibit is no longer necessary to look into luamplib's code to have access to the "double" "numbersystem" option (it is not called "math" anymore). Here I give a concrete example: \documentclass{article} \usepackage{luamplib} % Allow the list of MP pictures below to be moved horizontally % via ...

Too long for a comment. Can you try the following example? \documentclass{article} \begin{document} Hello \pdfsetmatrix{.52495 0 0 .52495} World \end{document} If it breaks, what happens if the \pdfsetmatrix line is replaced by the following? \pdfsetmatrix{2 0 0 2} or \pdfsetmatrix{2.0 0.0 0.0 2.0} So far I could not reproduce the problem, ...

MikTeX can be quite complicated sometimes. Installing a basic MikTeX as Admin gives you just the basi packages. Running as user and having »Install packages on the fly« activated, all downloaded and installed packages now are in a User tree. Updating as admin won't have any effect on them, so usually a user update is needed as well. Another possibility is ...

The error here is that you want to use MiKTeX with Cygwin. But you must decide: Either you use MiKTeX in usual Windows mode or you use Cygwin as Unix wrapper and have then to use TeX Live for Unix (i.e. not the Windows version of TL). With TeX Live you do not neede to install a separate Perl distribution (at least not for Tex use), because it comes with an ...

Few notes here: If the miktex path is C:\Program Files (x86)\MiKTeX 2.9 then it's 32-bit and if its C:\Program Files\miktex 2.9 then it's 64-bit miktex ProTeXt, at present, installs 64bit version of MikTeX. (The version of MiKTeX being installed is visible during the setup procedure). So I suggest not using it if you need specific version of MiKTeX. ...

Apparently you installed MikTeX basic, which does not have xepersian included. One way to install xepersian is using mikTeX on-the-fly package install, but not recommended. There might be dependencies you miss. The best solution I recommend is installing Texlive 2013 and update it. Installing miktex (complete) is another solution, but you must make sure it ...

I couldn't find a solution for initexmf errors. Instead I used \tikzset{external/system call= {pdflatex -save-size=80000 -pool-size=10000000 -extra-mem-top=50000000 -extra-mem-bot=10000000 -main-memory=90000000 ...

It seems MiKTeX installed two different versions of pgf, one through Package Manager, and one through Package Manager (Admin). Running the non-admin Update removed one copy (this idea was from arrows.meta in tikz), and then the compilation was successful. If anyone has more details on why this happened, you're welcome to add another answer.

I wouldn't count it as a miktex bug if two packages uses the same file name and imho the package maintainer should sort this out and not the tex distribuations. When such name clashes in the same branch of a texmf tree exists the search result is not predictable -- it can e.g. depend on the installation order, date or whatever. So you have imho the ...

Why fails? MiKTeX (and TeX Live) does not set proper font mapping for those fonts for CJK package. It is unportable and difficult to maintain such font mapping for so different platforms. In some local TeX distributions (e.g. CTeX套装), extra font mapping is set up for Chinese version of Windows platform. Your code will work fine if you install these TeX ...

an example with xelatex: \documentclass{article} \usepackage{fontspec} \setmainfont{Code2000} \begin{document} 我很喜歡吃中國飯。 Godzilla (ゴジラ, Gojira, Ishirō Honda, 1954) \end{document} The free TrueType font Code2000 is available in the www but you can use any other font with cjk characters.

For what its worth, I tried all the above methods and none worked. Eventually, I found that TeXstudio was calling repstopdf and not epstopdf. repstopdf was symlinked to epstopdf under /usr/texbin. I removed the repstopdf symlink and recreated it to point to the same file that epstopdf was symlinked to after which it worked. cd /usr/texbin rm repstopdf ln ...

I was facing similar problem while migrating to TexStudio for editing the latex files (I previously used WinEdt). The problem got solved when I realized that I have installed MikTex in two separate locations of my workstation. The environment path variables were set correctly too. Solution: I uninstalled all previous version of Miktex and TexStudio; and ...

This solution should work for unix-like systems i.e. OS X, BSDs, GNU/Linux etc. According to the comments, a variant might work for TeX Live on Windows but not, it seems, for MiKTeX. Being eminently unqualified to do otherwise, I pass over those matters in silence. install -m 755 -d \$(kpsewhich -var-value TEXMFHOME)/tex/latex/playtex install -m 644 ...

If you are happy with MiKTeX, then stay with it. I do not know PCTeX, and hence cannot say anything about potential advantages, but one important difference is: MiKTeX is open source and available for free, while PCTeX is commercial, cf. PCTeX v6 info. Mike Renfro linked to a thread in PCTeX webforum where you can read that only some years ago PCTeX had no ...

I did use the lcdf type tools a few years ago – mainly otfinfo and cfftot1 with a MiKTeX system, downloading the w32tex version and putting it anywhere in my hard disk. It was to be able to use the MinionPro package, but these applications are independent of any TeX system. In your case, otftotfm of course is linked to TeX, and mktexupd is a script that ...

You just need to run it without the -a option which tries to automatically install the font as well as generating the needed files. This works fine with Ubuntu-R.ttf. otftotfm will not need mktexupd to generate the files since that script is designed to update the file database ls-R. So it should work fine. You will just need to place the files yourself ...

Sorry, but this kind of questions is not answerable on a valuable level. The issue is in most cases not related to MiKTeX installer itself, not speaking of TeX in general. Possible reasons for problems are: a problem of user rights (writing access forbidden for simple users). A solution can consist in installing not in C:\Program Files (or the (x86) ...

My suggestion: Remove package pgf from MiKTeX with Package Manager and reinstall. There must be a flaw in your installation. Too long for a comment. I do not observe an error with MiKTeX 2.9, which was updated yesterday and does contain the update to pgf/TikZ 3.0. File list for compilation of example code with \listfiles: *File List* article.cls ...
