There is a wrong beamer template in the current (and older versions) of Kile. It should indeed be \usetheme{default}. Maybe there is a similar error in other LaTeX GUIs.

put a copy of config.ps in the same location (dvips/config) in some local texmf-tree. Open this copy in some editor and then move @ letter 8.5in 11in @+ ! %%DocumentPaperSizes: Letter @+ %%BeginPaperSize: Letter @+ letter @+ %%EndPaperSize before @ letterSize 8.5in 11in @+ ! %%DocumentPaperSizes: Letter Save the file (make sure that is still named ...

The LaTeX file has correctly declared letterpaper (it's also the default for class article. This can be checked by \showthe\paperwidth and \showthe\paperheight, the result is: > 614.295pt. l.9 \showthe\paperwidth > 794.96999pt. l.10 \showthe\paperheight 1in is 72.27pt or 72bp. Package geometry informs the driver via \special of the paper size. ...

Dvips takes into account what is declared by you file or the class you use. This hasn't to be set in config.ps. Maybe try MiKTeX Package Manager, and change the paper size:

I have MikTeX 2.9, and here is what I did to fix this problem on my computer: I gave full control to the installation folder, in addition to the Users****\AppData\Local\Temp folder; Start-> MikTeX 2.9 -> Maintenance -> Package Manager -> Repository -> Synchronize; Try 3 times to compile the Hello World file listed above [1st time yielded a blank pdf; 2nd ...

You can remove the bagpipe and bagpipex from the format list via the MiKTeX options (-> Formats ->"select" -> Remove). You won't be asked to install this package again.

I would avoid the complication of shell escape etc, and just put \newcommand{\EMAIL}{cccc@sss.com} into mysettings.sty and then just use \usepackage{mysettings} in both documents.

Thanks to @daleif's comment above I found the answer to be adding % !Tex root = main.tex to the top of the child files.

As clearly stated in pdflatex.ini: please do not edit this file so revert your changes in that file and rebuild the format. You should enable the --shell-escape feature when invoking your compiler. To do that in WinEdt, if you wish to use the PDFTeXify compiler, go to Options -> Execution Modes, and add --tex-option=--shell-escape in the "Switches" ...

I'm not a developer of MiKTeX nor TeXnicCenter but I'm a teacher how to use MikTeX (and TeXnicCenter). Some of my students have problems with their installation and asked me how to solve that. BTW are that usually students not following my installation hints ... MiKTeX has a separate update system and a separate package system. To have a well working ...

I installed the admin version (at least I think I did). Anyway, the end result is that the admin package manager installs packages in the old location, which for me is C:\Program Files\MiKTeX 2.9, and the plain package manager installs packages in C:\Users\John\AppData\Roaming\MiKTeX\2.9 (you need to show hidden files to find it). Now TeXnic Center uses ...

As I can remember you have two option for installing MikTex: only for you or for all users. I don't know, which influences that has. Despite this option, I installed miktex once on a computer without administrator(root)-privileges. That of course means, that no registry-entries will be made or altered, but the packages will just be copied in a folder defined ...

Have you try : [http://www.miktex.org/download] "The MiKTeX Setup Utility is used to download, install and uninstall MiKTeX using the command line. It is suitable for unattended setup tasks and can be regarded as the command line counterpart of the MiKTeX Setup Wizard."

It turned out the problem was indeed caused by the missing mpm.exe. The reason is that somehow the (current) "Basic" MikTeX installer does not install the miktex-mpmcli-bin package. This really should be considered a bug because mpm.exe is essential for the correct working of a number of MikTeX (GUI) tools which said installer does install (e.g. the ...

The console output shows two different TDS (texmf) trees for the TeX files: ("C:\Program Files\MiKTeX 2.9\tex\latex\geometry\geometry.sty" ("C:\Program Files\MiKTeX 2.9\tex\latex\graphics\keyval.sty") ("C:\Program Files\MiKTeX 2.9\tex\generic\oberdiek\ifpdf.sty") ...

The package polski is mostly outdated, just replace the call by \usepackage[polish]{babel} There's a slight complication with amssymb that wants to define \lll, but there's no need for amssymb when txfonts is loaded. On the other hand, instead of txfonts it's better to load the combination of newtxtext and newtxmath. Here's a fixed version, where also ...

I was facing a similar problem (foo.eps file converts to pdf correctly but goo.eps converts to a blank pdf). I also searched google a lot and came up on the unresolved questions the OP has mentioned. Please note that my foo.eps and goo.eps were not generated by the same software. I used pdflatex. Here is how I solved it on linux using Gwenview: Initial ...

You have planted several bugs in your document. The most important one is that you shouldn't load both amsthm and ntheorem (see section 3.2.2 in the manual of ntheorem). Since you're using the syntax of the latter, remove \usepackage{amsthm} You have other minor or less minor bugs, though. \usepackage{times} is overridden by \usepackage{fourier} ntheorem ...

Here is a debugged code. The main problem was you loaded both amsthm and ntheorem. I removed amsthm, because I know better ntheorem, it's easier to customise, and it can place automatically the end-of-proof symbol, even when the proof ends up in a displayed equation. hyperef should beloaded before the first theorem declaration. I took the liberty to ...

A little bit of modifications to: remove "Chapter 0", change the proposition identifiers, make the lengthy exercises look better \documentclass[a4paper,12pt]{book} % -- math packages \usepackage{amsmath} \usepackage{amssymb} \usepackage[thmmarks, amsmath, thref]{ntheorem} % -- fonts and related \usepackage[utf8]{inputenc} ...

There is currently a bug in the babel package from miktex. The files are in tex/tex/generic/babel instead of tex/generic/babel. This is a problem if the cslatex package is installed as now its hyphen.cfg is found before the hyphen.cfg from babel. Until the package is repaired you can do the following: Move the hyphen.cfg from tex/tex/generic/babel to ...

I was having the exact same problem but then I updated MikTeX on my computer as an Admin and everything's been working fine since. You can find out how to update here if you're not sure http://miktex.org/howto/update-miktex hope it works out for you :)
