I'm having trouble for 2 days printing a glossary (using glossaries package). I tried on TexLive and TexMaker.

I followed this documentation/tutorial to understand how to use glossaries package

Here is my test source code to print a glossary:

\documentclass[a4paper]{report}
\usepackage{glossaries}
\makeglossaries
\begin{document}
    \newglossaryentry{computer} {
        name=computer,
        description={is a programmable machine that receives input,
           stores and manipulates data, and provides
           output in a useful format}
    }
    \gls{computer}
    \printglossaries
\end{document}

To make the glossary I read that I had to make a custom user command in TexMaker:

makeglossaries %

enter image description here

Si I build with PDFLatex, it builds without any error, then run the custom command but I got this error:

Process started

Process exited with error(s)

Additionnal information:

The compilation created .aux, .glo, .glsdefs, .ist, .log, .pdf, .synctex, .tex files

Perl installed

TexMaker 4.2

I'm kind of stuck here, I've no idea what to do.

Thank you

Edit n°3: when typing

makeglossaries testGlossaire

In a prompt, I got this error message:

C:\texlive\2013\bin\win32\runscript.tlu:671: C:\texlive\2013\bin\win32\runscript.tlu:641: program not found (not part of TeX Live): cmd

So I looked at runscript.tlu and found the function which returned this message:

-- checks if command exists on the path and returns its full path
local function check_command(cmdlist, PATH)
  for cmd in string.gmatch(cmdlist, '%S+') do
    local cmdext = cmd..(string.find(cmd, '%.[^\\/.]*$') and '' or '.exe')
    local fullcmd = search_path(cmdext, PATH)
    if fullcmd then 
      return fullcmd, cmd
    end
  end
  return nil, 'program not found (not part of TeX Live): '..cmdlist
end

Edit n°2: added an image to show the custom command

Edit n°1: the full log (content of the .log file):

  • Welcome to TeX.SX! Please show us the custom command you have used! – LaRiFaRi Jun 10 '14 at 9:20
  • Hello, it's: "makeglossaries %" I've written it, I'll make it more visible – user3564358 Jun 10 '14 at 9:23
  • Please open a terminal in your main folder. Run pdflatex MWE.tex, then makeglossaries MWE, and then again pdflatex MWE.tex (MWE has to be replaced by the actual name). This works perfectly here. – LaRiFaRi Jun 10 '14 at 9:26
  • And make sure, you are doing everything like explained here: tex.stackexchange.com/a/61102. It sounds like you are doing that, but maybe this tutorial shows you some error on your process. – LaRiFaRi Jun 10 '14 at 9:30
  • @LaRiFaRi I got this error with makeglossaries: C:\texlive\2013\bin\win32\runscript.tlu:671: C:\texlive\2013\bin\win32\runscript.tlu:641: program not found (not part of TeX Live): cmd – user3564358 Jun 10 '14 at 9:31

The PATH environment variable was missing the directory where the makeglossaries script is located. Once the directory is on the path, runscript.tlu should be able to find it.
