comment Package natbib Error: Bibliography not compatible with author-year citations
with the natbib package, replacing citet* with a simple cite solved the problem, which I have not been able to identify.

@YiannisLazarides, this doesn't work with environments, right?, e.g. \let\v\verbatim

comment Remove colon in the caption of a figure without using caption package
I also use the elsarticle class, slightly redefined, because it's pretty and works well, not necessarily to submit to Elsevier journals.

comment Obey spaces with URL package (path command)
Thanks Stefan, that's indeed what I ended up doing: apparently hyperref loads url already so \PassOptionsToPackage is a pretty good way to go.

Would that work with beamer? I guess I'll find out soon enough...

FYI, I have posted instructions on how to install gnuplot, and make it talk to latex, on Mac OS X here: tex.stackexchange.com/questions/71160/…

comment Setting up LaTeX -> DVIPS -> PS2PDF with Shell-Escape (in TeXStudio)
I have posted instructions on how to install gnuplot on Mac OS X here: tex.stackexchange.com/questions/71160/… I haven't tried on Windows yet, but since I have it on Linux in another partition on the same laptop I don't think I will bother to try on Windows now ;-)

comment Setting up LaTeX -> DVIPS -> PS2PDF with Shell-Escape (in TeXStudio)
thanks! Well, now I've managed to make it work on Linux, where I have gnuplot and lots of other stuff installed, so my suspicion is that I'm missing something crucial on my Windows and Mac setups: does gnuplot need to be installed (I saw nothing about that in the manual)? I have also been able to add the usr0: in front of the command, and I suspect the problem was a space I might have added between usr and the number. So that was a silly move on my part. Do you know something about gnuplot? I'd say my question has been answered, and thanks again!

I've now tested extensively on Windows 7 and am observing the same behaviour as Mac OS X: My user commands seem to work in that they compile ordinary documents. Note 1: no usr2: in front of the command, otherwise it fails. Note 2: shell-escape is invoked in restricted mode (whatever that means) for pdflatex and latex and in full mode for latexmk. The guilloché code doesn't run, but the error message is pretty explicit about a gnuplot problem. Now I'll try on linux, where I do have gnuplot. (had to update for >4 hours my Windows + tlmgr, I hadn't been there a while!)

I'm still on the case ... I had other stuff to do today ;-) Now what I have discovered is that my latexmk --shell-escape profile generates the message entering extended mode and \write18 enabled whereas the pdflatex --shell-escape or latex --shell-escape commands generate entering extended mode and restricted \write18 enabled. So maybe a difference there. The other thing is that when I compile the guilloché code, there is a reference to gnuplot which I don't have on my Mac OS X (no mention of gnuplot in the manual)... I'm going to try on Windows and Linux right now.
