# Circuitikz works with ground but does not work for rground

If I try to plot the following circuitikz schematic it works:

\begin{figure}[bth]
\myfloatalign
\begin{center}
\begin{circuitikz}[american voltages]
\draw
(0,0) node[ground] {}
to [V, l^=$F_{A}$] (0,2)
to [R, i^>=$v_A$, -o, l_=$Z_A$] (3,2);
\end{circuitikz}
\end{center}
\caption{Circuit representation of the actuator.}
\label{fig:actuatormodel}
\end{figure}


But when I want to use rground or sground instead of ground (I saw these nicer ground symbols in the circuitikz manual), I get the following error when compiling:

Latex Error: ./chapters/design.tex:38 Package pgfkeys Error: I do not know the key '/tikz/rground' and I am going to ignore it. Perhaps you misspelled it.


In my document setup I load tikz, circuitikz and pgfplots like this:

\usepackage{tikz}
\usetikzlibrary{chains, shapes, arrows}
\usepackage{pgfplots}
\pgfplotsset{legend style={font=\smaller}, compat=newest, plot coordinates/math parser=false}
\usepgflibrary{arrows}
\usepackage[siunitx]{circuitikz}


I use the MacTeX-2012 Distribution. Why can I use ground but not rground?

• It works with no problems in my system (TeX Live2013) using circuitikz.sty 2012/12/29 The CircuiTikz circuit drawing package version 0.3.0 Which version of circuitikz do you use? – Gonzalo Medina Jun 24 '13 at 15:59
• I saw that I actually have the MacTeX-2012 Distribution with CircuiTikz 0.2.4. I am updating now to the MacTeX-2013 Distribution, hopefully that will solve my problem. – kasper Jun 24 '13 at 16:42
• Please provide a minimal example next time. And if your problem is not solved with the update do provide a minimal example. – WG- Jun 25 '13 at 16:26
