I am writing Master thesis in LaTeX and want to use minted package for source code syntax highlighting. I have installed it successfully and minimal example from minted documentation works just fine.

The problem is when I use document class predefined at Prague Technical University called FITthesis. I believe it is a Fitthesis.cls file (attached).

After command pdflatex -shell-escape MintedTest I get an error:

! Undefined control sequence.
\set@color ...\@pdfcolorstack push{\current@color 
                                                  }\aftergroup \reset@color 
l.8 \begin{document}

This is minimal example:



int main() {
printf("hello, world");
return 0;

Any ideas what to do? I am LaTeX newbie. I didn't even find the file where this error is.

  • Welcome to TeX.sx! Try adding \usepackage{xcolor} – egreg Apr 13 '13 at 19:49
  • Thank you, but it didn't help. Same error. :-/ – Macejkou Apr 13 '13 at 19:51

    it is a problem with your document class. With the standard class article you won't get an error – user2478 Apr 13 '13 at 20:01
  • The error happens when LaTeX is processing \begin{document} and has nothing to do with minted. – egreg Apr 13 '13 at 20:02
  • When I remove Minted everything works fine. – Macejkou Apr 13 '13 at 20:19

This runs without the internal color error, just errors about not supplying keywords and other data.








If you insert \RequirePackage{color} before \AtBeginDocument{ ... }

in the class FITthesis.cls it will work as well ;-)
