The difference is a change in babel.def between 2012 and 2013: In TeXLive 2012 babel.def contains \bbl@redefine\LaTeX{\textlatin{\org@LaTeX}} And there the example compiles. This redefinition has then been dropped. Now the definition of \LaTeX is unchanged and no longer can be used in math in current tex systems.

You can't have an unescaped hash sign in non-verbatim fields in your .bib file even if you hide it in a \url command, where normally it does not cause harm. URLs should best be given in the dedicated url field (which you seem to have done anyway), which can handle evil characters such as # and friends, because it uses a special verbatim mode. You can then ...

No. That is, if you mean a single place, such as a bug tracker, where you can check for known issues and lists of changes in all LaTeX packages in TeX Live, then there is no such place. LaTeX packages are contributed by an enormous number of different people. There are bug trackers for some individual packages and for core stuff, but many packages have no ...

The file is included under texmf-dist/texmf-dist/.. but kpsewhich is searching under texmf-dist/ and the relevant ls-R is in texmf-dist/. So the file is not found because the file is one directory layer deeper than normal, but your TeX Live is not configured accordingly. Note that the hierarchical structure of the file system matters. It is not sufficient ...

I have adjusted tlmgr/tlmgrgui perl scripts so that standard arguments for font selection will work - this will be included in tomorrow's (20160517) tlpretest for TL2016. With this, a simple tlmgr --font 'Helvetica 24' gui will give you a much bigger font than usual. Hope that helps.

We use an "editor", which supports LaTeX, to write a text. Common editors are listed here: LaTeX Editors/IDEs and in wikipedia, here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Comparison_of_TeX_editors . About the concept of an editor, please read here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Text_editor (This article may have been translated to your language!).

Some time ago, I provided a Mac OS X installer package for latex2rtf on my Dropbox account and posted it to the Mac OS X TeX mailing list: https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/36690878/latex2rtf.pkg.zip The package is a few years old, but I don't think latex2rtf development has been very active. It installs to /usr/local, and you'd have to run it from the ...

latex2rtf is a standalone program and not part of 'tex. You need to install Latex2rtf on your mac like you would any other program. Once you have installed it and added it to your path, you run latex2rtf from the terminal command line. You may find it helpful to review the manual page at http://latex2rtf.sourceforge.net/usage.html before trying to use it. ...

After further investigation and head scratching I have reached a working solution. Updated MWE \RequirePackage{filecontents} \begin{filecontents*}{\jobname.bib} @misc{enc2015, author = {{Example News Company}}, title = {{Daily News for September 9 2015}}, url = {http://www.example.com/content/news/sep{\_}09/12}, urldate = {2016-03-08}, ...

On my Ubuntu 15.10 system, I can influence font choice with global X resources. Line in ~.Xresources, e.g.: *Font: -*-nimbus sans l-medium-r-normal-*-14-*-*-*-p-*-iso10646-1 The font name matches the one listed in the xfontsel utility. So, this is pretty prehistoric. Activation of this new/changed line: xrdb merge ~/.Xresources

Package subscript defines \textsubscript. This is not needed with the recent LaTeX version, where the definition for \textsubscript is already part of the LaTeX kernel. For older LaTeX versions, \textsubscript is defined in package fixltx2e, from its documentation: 4 Fixes added for 2005/12/01 4.1 \textsubscript not defined in latex.ltx (pr/3492)

I don't think your .bashrc is correct. Try reading this post here on how to do it. In particular your PATH variable should be set like this: PATH=$PATH:/usr/local/texlive/2015/bin/x86_64-linux without the semicolon at the end. You also don't need to export. I believe you have made a typo in your post. It should be x86_64-linux and not x68_64-linux as ...

The biblatex-ieee on CTAN is from 2016-04-16 and uses the new name giveninits instead of the old name firstinits. Since the TeX live 2015 freeze was around 2016-04-04 that version has not made it to TeX live 2015 and you are stuck with the older version that uses the old names. Note that in your case you only get a warning and the option still takes ...

The correct way as documented in /usr/share/doc/tex-common/TeX-on-Debian.* (Section 2.4.3) is to add new fmtutil.cnf file in either TEXMFLOCAL/web2c or TEXMFSYSCONFIG/web2c, that is either /usr/local/share/texmf/web2c/ or /etc/texmf/web2c/ containing the new or updated format definitions. Files should not be put into /etc/texmf/fmtutil.cnf/ anymore.

The best practice to install TeXnicCenter is: If you have installed an TeX distribution and TeXnicCenter deinstall both! Reboot the computer! Install and upate the TeX distribution, you want to use. When the installation of the TeX distribution is finished (important!), please reboot! Download the current TeXnicCenter installer program and install it. ...
