How to make hyperref work with a Unicode paths?

Suggestions to use utf8, utf8x for inputenc didn't work for me.

My inputenc is with those options: \usepackage[utf8x]{inputenc}.

Using a unicode=true tag didn't solve my problem.

    Using \usepackage[unicode=true]{hyperref} doesn't help in your case? – Ludovic C. Sep 2 '13 at 9:09
  • Are you loading inputenc? With what option? – egreg Sep 2 '13 at 9:35

    I get no error with utf8x. I would guess that your ucs version is outdated. You could try to do what the message says; Insert \PrerenderUnicode{Ą} and so on in your preamble. With utf8 as inputenc option one has first to add sensible definitions for the chars, e.g. with newunicodechar. – Ulrike Fischer Sep 2 '13 at 13:13

It means that \PrerenderUnicode{} does not work in this situation. – user2215964 Sep 3 '13 at 5:57

You can try:


Also I have doubts that $HOME can be used here, because a shell or similar is needed to interpret the environment variable.

  • Very useful. One question about this: how to make a href links absolute? Now href links file in relative path: $HOME/dir/file becomes &HOME/workdir/texfile:$HOME/dir/file. – user2215964 Sep 3 '13 at 12:43
