I'm new to LaTeX.

I downloaded a template for making a CV.


It says to be compiled with biber and XeLaTeX

Im trying with xelatex vc_10.tex but always getting errors, fixed them by searching the web but with this one I'm completely stuck.

Can anyone help with this one?

(/usr/share/texmf/tex/latex/biblatex/lbx/english.lbx) (./cv_10.aux)
! Undefined control sequence.
\um_set_mathsymbol:nNNn #1#2#3#4->\tl_case:Nnn 
                                               #3{\mathop {\um_set_big_opera...
l.27 \begin{document}

these are the first lines of the file

\documentclass[]{friggeri-cv} % Add 'print' as an option into the square bracket to remove colors from this template for printing

\addbibresource{bibliography.bib} % Specify the bibliography file to include publications


and gives the error on the \begin{document}

  • This is a LaTeX3 macro. Do you have those LaTeX3 packages installed?

    \tl_case:Nnn is a rather new command. So probably your latex3 packages are outdated. May 24 '13 at 16:21

    @UlrikeFischer More precisely, they are mismatched: the version of unicode-math installed must be newer than the version of expl3.

In my opinion it's a flaw to install TeX Live via any Unix package manager. Normally they only provide an outdated version of TeX Live. I guess you version is TeX Live 2009.

The current newest version is TeX Live 2013. So I recommend to install TeX Live 2013 and everything will work fine.

There a a lot of other related question too.
