This is a follow up on How to use xindy with XeTeX/LuaTeX?.

When I use this MWE

\documentclass{article}

\usepackage{fontspec}

\usepackage{makeidx}
\makeindex

\begin{document}
Umlaut Ä\index{Ä}
\printindex
\end{document}

with this commands

xelatex file.tex
xindy -M texindy -C utf8 file.idx
xelatex file.tex

the use of xindy shows this error:

*** - PROGN: variable TEXINDY.XDY has no value
3

Seems like the -L option isn’t optional when using -M texindy, so I had to use

xindy -C utf8 -M texindy -L german-duden file.idx

to make it work.

  • I wonder if it is possible to add -L german-duden and -C utf8 to my own style file to shorten the command to xindy -M mystyle file.idx. – Tobi Jun 17 '14 at 9:27
