Why is it that whenever I add \usepackage{pstricks} or \usepackage{tikz}, I always get the error below?

Latex Error: /usr/local/texlive/2013/texmf-dist/tex/latex/xcolor/xcolor.sty:60 TeX capacity exceeded, sorry [parameter stack size=10000].

Latex Error: /usr/local/texlive/2013/texmf-dist/tex/latex/xcolor/xcolor.sty:60 ==> Fatal error occurred, no output PDF file produced!

However, if I try to compile a document with (only) those packages in a separate file, no problem!

It seems as if these packages conflict with my existing packages (listed below).

Any ideas would be very much appreciated! Thanks a lot.

 \usepackage{graphicx}
 \usepackage{gb4e} 
 \usepackage{tipa} 
 \usepackage{setspace}
 \usepackage[T1]{fontenc}
 \usepackage{multirow}
 \usepackage{lscape}
 \usepackage{slashbox}
 \usepackage{arydshln}
 \usepackage[T1]{fontenc}
 \usepackage{float}
 \usepackage{makeidx}
 \usepackage{enumitem}

Here is the code that produces the problem (with all other text removed)

    Please add some minimal code that reproduces the problem.

    Make the example shorter! Remove all packages which have nothing to do with the problem.

Try moving gb4e as the last called package. Moreover, you have two instances of \usepackage[T1]{fontenc}. Here's the working example:

\documentclass{article} 
\usepackage{graphicx}
\usepackage{tipa} 
\usepackage{setspace}
\usepackage[T1]{fontenc} % only one instance
\usepackage{multirow}
\usepackage{lscape}
\usepackage{slashbox}
\usepackage{arydshln}
\usepackage{float}
\usepackage{makeidx}
\usepackage{enumitem}
\usepackage{pstricks}
\usepackage{tikz}
\usepackage{gb4e} % put gb4e here

\begin{document}
 Hello world.
\end{document}

  • Thanks! Strangely, however, if I do that, it compiles but with an error: "Latex Error: ./gb4e-doc-final1.tex:621 LaTeX Error: File `waveforms' not found." -- (repeats for each image file)... If I comment out the pstricks package it compiles just fine (though the line drawing above doesn't work)

  • Can you please edit the example the example above? It has various basic code typos. If I try to compile it I get several errors. I put the code from the example above from \color{white} to \end{document} and it compiles without errors but the result seems to be not what your looking for: imgur.com/CgmDVk7

  • P.S.: probably it would be better if you should post another question with a new MWE.
