Just for fun solution with PSTricks. \documentclass[pstricks,border=15pt,12pt]{standalone} \usepackage{pst-func} \begin{document} \begin{psgraph}[Dy=2](0,0)(-3,-12)(3,12){12cm}{12cm} \psplotImp[algebraic,linecolor=red,stepFactor=.3](-2.5,-12)(2.5,12){y^2 + (x^2-5)*(4*x^4-20*x^2+25)} \end{psgraph} \end{document}

Thanks to the helpful comments I figured out that the problem to solve was to get pdflatex use version 3.0.0 of pgf. Since the Miktex Package Manager said, that I had installed version 3.0.0 and the pgf package was not updatable, but \pgfversion displayed version 2.1 I think my MikTex installation was (for an unknown reason) broken. Therefore I decided to ...

If I understand your question right: The MiKTeX update process has generally three parts: If there are changes in the basic system (miktex.exe etc.) MiKTeX downloads and updates only this files. Then the update process has to be started once again. Are there packages to be deleted? If yes, then the MiKTeX update manager is programmed to mark only that ...

I ended up downloading and manually installing the mathtools package, this was easier I think than switching to an earlier version of miktex. I think emher is right and that this is a bug in miktex 5105 where those two packages just don't appear in the list. For anyone else with the same problem you can download the package here. To install the package I ...

In my first pass, I simply let the update finish with the packages selected by default. It seems that only obsolete packages are selected, and the purpose of the 1st update was to clear them out. In my 2nd attempt at updating, it seems that all the remaining packages were checked off for updating. And Select All was not grayed out. I pressed it to make ...

It seems like there is a bug in the MikTeX 5105 basic installer. Using it ("basic-miktex-2.9.5105"), i encountered the issue stated here; the "mathtools" and "breqn" packages do not appear and the "mh" package installation fails with the error mentioned earlier. To circumvent this problem until a fix is released, download the net installer instead ...

With MiKTeX 2.9, your file compiles perfectly. But perhaps you should update your installation: your .log file mention LuaTeX, Version beta-0.70.2-2012060719 (MiKTeX 2.9 64-bit) and the beginning of my .log file is This is LuaTeX, Version beta-0.76.0-2013062821 (rev 4627) (format=lualatex 2013.6.28) 11 SEP 2014 13:54 \write18 enabled. You also can try ...

First of all, what you say is not true. Using the fullpage package does not change \pdfpagewidth/height or \paperwidth/height. It does therefore not change the paper size from A4 to letter. In fact, it computes and sets the margins as well as \textwidth/height depending on the values of \paperwidth/height. By default, fullpage will set the left and right ...

Yap needs at least access to the fonts in the texmf tree as (unlike the pdf-format) dvi doesn't contain them. It also need access to a texmf tree to store font files (pk, tfm) it perhaps has to create. So a standalone installation doesn't make much sense. You could install a basic miktex and attach the texlive texmf roots. But you will probably run into ...

Not needing to hash the local tree in TeX Live has been the case for a few years but not always. That is true on Linux and the Mac, where TeX Live or a derivative is 'standard', and also on Windows, where both TeX Live and MiKTeX are found. It's down to Christian Schenk to define how MiKTeX works: presumably he's happier with the idea of requiring hashing ...

However, whenever I compile I get the error that Texmaker "could not start the command" for pdflatex. What could be the issue here? You should compile document before you can see it. You just click "View PDF" (for instance), but before you should compile by clicking "Quick build" on menu bar (or press F1).

The mh package has recently been split into mathtools and breqn, with different maintainers, and they certainly appear in MiKTeX Package Manager: Which version of mpm do you have?

No need of re-installing anything. Go to Options → Execution Modes. In the window that opens correct the paths in TeX System, Ghostscript (if you want), and PATH tabs. Finally you may check your system using Diagnosis tab in the same window.

I had success at opening your document with Word 2010. First of all, I converted document to odt format. Because you don't have mk4ht command available, you need to use following htlatex call: htlatex test.tex "xhtml,ooffice" "ooffice/! -cmozhtf" "-cooxtpipes -coo" all these parameters are necessary, they are used in postprocessing of the xml file with ...

Making sure the current path is that of the file test.tex to convert, use "C:\Program Files (x86)\MiKTeX 2.9\scripts\tex4ht\htlatex" test.tex "html,mathml" instead, as explained in TeX4ht (htlatex) on MiKTeX 2.9 to convert LaTeX into MathML, and then into Office MathML with Word 2010 and MiKTeX 2.9's tex4ht not working. Alternatively, try htlatex ...

TeX4ht does work under MiKTeX 2.9 for Windows 7, although equations are often converted into bitmap pictures rather than MathML, unless the option "html,mathml" is used with the htlatex command. Here's what I did: Installed MiKTeX 2.9 with both miktex-tex4ht-bin-2.9 and miktex-tex4ht-base-2.9 installed with the package manager in administrator mode, on ...

WinEdt version 9 is the actual one. Your school should update. I guess your problem is that you are not the administrator for the computers. So it could be that you are not allowed to change the computer for example with an update for MiKTeX. Contact your local administrator and tell him which updates you need or ask him (he should knew the instalation) ...

Starting is the hardest part! I'd look for a "howto" on latex suited to your platform. While the concepts are the same, how you set things up to work is different on Windows, Mac and Linux. You might find an appropriate tutorial with your chosen editor (e.g. texmaker) most helpful. Work through a basic tutorial first, then you'll have a working latex ...

You can use the command line version of the package manager with the --import-all switch. See http://docs.miktex.org/2.9/manual/mpm.html Something like this: mpm --repository=<path-to-miktex-2.8> --import-all If your miktex 2.8. was a multiuser installation it could be that your packages are in part in the USERINSTALL tree. I don't know if you ...

Install only the basic version of MikTeX 2.9. Then it will install on the fly only the needed packages.

The manual (pdf) of texshade states on page 13 that a ! TeX capacity exceeded error might orccur. It also gives instructions on how to increasse the capacity. The only difference to your error is that it does not talk about save size, but about main memory size or stack size. The principle of increasing the capacity should also work here. Instructions for ...

First make sure it isn't already installed — I thought it was part of the ‘basic’ installation. If you cannot have administrator privileges to install with the Package Manager, you can download from a repositoy babel-english.tar.lzma. Unzip it (twice) to get a texmf folder. You just have to copy the contents of this folder at the root of the MiKTeX ...

This may help someone else out, I spent ages trying to sort this out. I had the same problem, I have Biber 1.9 and Biblatex 2.9 installed but was getting the same error. I recently changed from Bibtex to Biblatex. I managed to find what was causing the error, it was the bib file, some of my articles had 'keywords' I removed this and its working fine now. ...

It's texmf\source\beamer-src.tar.bz2, where texmf has to be replaced with the main root of your installation — usually C:\Program Files\MiKTeX 2.9 for a 64 bit installation, or C:\Program Files (x86)\MiKTeX 2.9 for a 32 bit installation. Generally speaking (almost) all sources are installed in Main Root\source. The exact location can be checked, for a ...

The files loaded by TeX to use a LaTeX document class such as beamer are text files: there are no binaries involved. If you know the name of the file TeX is loading you can find it using kpsewhich. For example, the main beamer class file is called beamer.cls, and kpsewhich beamer.cls at the Command Line/Terminal will find it. On my system it gives ...

Right click and "Run as an administrator" will resolve the issue.

The issue has been resolved. The version of biber I had was downloaded from http://biblatex-biber.sourceforge.net/ , Download. It was not biber v1.9 but v1.8. This version of biber was working fine prior to the update biblatex v2.9a. I replaced it by the one available available at ...

I had the same problem, reinstalling Lyx wasn't enough, I needed to return to the previous version of MikTex too, thankfully I found and old installation of Lyx 2.0.6 on my computer with the older version of MikTex, after complitlt reinstalling it, and installing culmus again it worked like it used to, couldn't find it online so I uploaded it to google drive ...
