To change the color of the first name to black it is probably simplest to patch the command \makecvhead \makeatletter \patchcmd{\makecvhead}{\color{color2!50}\@firstname}{\color{color2}\@firstname}{}{} \makeatother You can combine the body definition of fancy with casual. \moderncvstyle{casual} \moderncvbody{5}

You mentioned you have problems. You are right, that you got several warnings, but all of them are not real problems at last, because you get a pdf file and the only difference could be the glyph for special symbols for a telefone, an envelope etc. But let us check the warnings. The first three are: you have requested package modercvheadii but the ...

Compile the file with XeLaTeX. It runs smoothely. With pdflatex I get the same errors as you. edit:// Version 2.0.0 of the moderncvpackage on github provides several templates. The classic template uses a different iconset as can be seen in the *.sty file (cf. here) % symbols \moderncvicons{marvosym} The casual Theme uses % symbols ...

I edited the main.tex of the package. It seems to be very messed up and uses undeclared commands. I commented out the respecting lines and made some corrections, especially to the documentclass argument that was given double (?!). Replace the code in your main.tex with this code. It should work with an up to date latex version. %% start of file ...

As result of our chat we found that the used version of moderncv is 1.5.1. That's the reason for the received error message ! LaTeX Error: File moderncvstylefancy.sty not found. So an update of moderncv to the current version 2.0.0 is needed. Sorry, I do not know how you have to that with TeXLive on debian.

The file dvips.def is is part of the graphics package. If you have a system available on which your example compiles successfully, you can locate the file with kpsewhich dvips.def, for example. Otherwise, try to use the search facility at CTAN that also allows to search for file names, or grep ftp://ftp.ctan.org/pub/tex/FILES.byname.gz. However, this way ...

I guess this is hardcoded in the *.sty file. When looking at the moderncvbodyi.sty you'll find the following: \renewcommand*{\cventry}[7][.25em]{% \cvitem[#1]{#2}{% {\bfseries#3}% \ifthenelse{\equal{#4}{}}{}{, {\slshape#4}}% \ifthenelse{\equal{#5}{}}{}{, #5}% \ifthenelse{\equal{#6}{}}{}{, #6}% .\strut% \ifx&#7&% ...

You need to complete your letter as shown in the file template.tex of moderncv. You missed the following lines: \recipient{HR Department}{Corporation\\123 Pleasant Lane\\12345 City, State} \date{January 01, 1984} \opening{Dear Sir or Madam,}% Sehr geehrte Damen und Herren \closing{Yours faithfully,}% freundliche Grüße \enclosure[Attached]{curriculum ...

If you really want an oversized CV, you can load the extsizes package; moderncv only accepts 10pt, 11pt and 12pt. \documentclass[a4paper,sans]{moderncv} \usepackage[20pt]{extsizes} \moderncvstyle{classic} \firstname{Font} \familyname{Size} \begin{document} \maketitle \section{Test Section} \cventry{2012}{Title}{Institute}{City}{}{cventry font size not ...

Apparently, after deleting the tempoary files, it works now with the following \documentclass[11pt,a4paper,sans]{moderncv} % \moderncvstyle{classic} \moderncvcolor{blue} \usepackage[utf8]{inputenc} \usepackage[scale=0.75]{geometry} \name{John}{Doe} \title{Resume} \begin{document} \makecvtitle \section{Personal Data} ...

The definition of \spacedlowsmallcaps in classicthesis.sty, provided microtype is loaded, is \DeclareRobustCommand{\spacedlowsmallcaps}[1]{% \textls[80]{\scshape\MakeTextLowercase{#1}}% } Remember to add \usepackage{microtype} \usepackage{textcase} to your preamble. However, for moderncv you have to follow a different strategy: ...

I've managed to fix it. There is a long list of packages needed to be installed before compiling a cv using the moderncv template. All packages can be installed using the miktex package manager which on windows is installed by default in: C:\Program Files (x86)\MiKTeX 2.9\miktex\bin\mpm_mfc_admin.exe First, install moderncv. Installing manually is more of ...

You can use \show to see what \labelitemi is and then adjust it to raise the bullet, normally in the preamble but here mid-document to show before and after \documentclass[11pt,a4paper]{moderncv} \moderncvtheme[blue]{classic} \usepackage{fontspec} \usepackage{fontawesome} \usepackage[scale=0.85]{geometry} \moderncvicons{awesome} %\show\labelitemi% ...

Your desired layout can be achieved with some \llap commands. That way the long entries in the left column are right aligned and can extend all the way to the left. As Kurt pointed out, the big gaps between the lines on the left are caused by your \newline commands near the natural linebreak. If you use \llaps you need to issue a linebreaking command. ...
