I'm a LaTeX noob and i'm trying to create CV with moderncv package. I installed it via Tex Live Utility and then tried to start creating my own cv with cv_7.tex template (http://www.latextemplates.com/template/moderncv-cv-and-cover-letter) with TeXWorks.

When run the template I get this:

(./moderncv.cls

! LaTeX Error: File `suffix.sty' not found.

Type X to quit or <RETURN> to proceed,
or enter new name. (Default extension: sty)

Enter file name: 

I tried to find this suffix style from TexLive Utility but I can't seem to find it! Any solutions?

You need to either:

  • install the bigfoot package (suffix.sty is part of that package; there is no standalone suffix package), or
  • update your moderncv package (versions newer than 1.3.0 don't rely on suffix.sty anymore).
  • bigfoot package solved my problem! Thanks a ton! – ElecEngineer May 2 '13 at 13:36
