I have been trying to generate a timetable for my weekly schedule via a GNU SF template that I've found. As I'm Greek, I wanted the text in the schedule to be in Greek.

The template I use is Pascal Gwosdek's timetable.sty package, which generates a nice looking weekly timetable, like so:

enter image description here

The problem begins when I attempt to change the days into the Greek equivalents, in the timetables.sty package, like so:

\newcommand{\greekdays}[1]
{
    % Arguments: <number of start day>
    % Macro for the greek week days
    % added by dsfounis

    \setcounter{@day}{#1}

    \@ttforloop{@column}{1}{\value{@column} < \value{@colcount}}
    {
        \ifthenelse{\equal{\value{@day}}1}{\daymark{Δευτέρα}}{}
        \ifthenelse{\equal{\value{@day}}2}{\daymark{Τρίτη}}{}
        \ifthenelse{\equal{\value{@day}}3}{\daymark{Τετάρτη}}{}
        \ifthenelse{\equal{\value{@day}}4}{\daymark{Πέμπτη}}{}
        \ifthenelse{\equal{\value{@day}}5}{\daymark{Friday}}{}
        \ifthenelse{\equal{\value{@day}}6}{\daymark{Saturday}}{}
        \ifthenelse{\equal{\value{@day}}7}{\daymark{Sunday}}{}

        \stepcounter{@day}
        \ifthenelse{\value{@day} > 7}{\addtocounter{@day}{-7}}{}
    }
}

The result:

enter image description here

I've identified the lines that set the font for most elements of the timetable to be these ones:

% SansSerif font
\newcommand{\timetablefont}{\sffamily}
\newcommand{\@ttfont}{\timetablefont\selectfont}

Is there any way to properly show Greek characters in \sffamily? I thought Computer Modern Sans Serif included Greek symbols.

I could also change the font to Ubuntu basic, which is suitable for the timetable and looks good, but I do not know how to do this through the above 2 lines.

  • Can you add a minimal working example? – egreg Mar 1 '15 at 14:28
  • @egreg It's kind of irrelevant, since all the work in the .tex file is done by using commands in the .sty package. I have no problem with compiling, I just want to get the font to work with greek letters in these two lines in the package. Since I'm a beginner though, a minimal working example could reveal a problem that I'm missing. Adding it now. – Dimitris Sfounis Mar 1 '15 at 14:32

You have to add support for Greek to begin with. The simplest way is to use babel:

\documentclass[a4paper,10pt]{report}
\usepackage[T1]{fontenc}
\usepackage[utf8]{inputenc}
\usepackage[greek,english]{babel}

% Definitions
\usepackage{pdflscape}
\usepackage[height=25cm]{geometry}
\usepackage{timetable}
\begin{document}
\thispagestyle{empty}
\begin{landscape}
\printheading{Stundenplan 6. Semester}
% Define the layout of your time tables
\setslotsize{3.8cm}{0.3cm}
\setslotcount {5} {36}
\settextframe{0.8mm}
\setbottomstyle{\tiny}
\setbottomspace{1pt}
\setprinttimestamps{2}
\setframetype[t]{1}
\seteventcornerradius{0pt}
\definecolor{ttframecol2}{rgb}{0.9,0.9,0.9}

The definition of \greekdays should be

\newcommand{\greekdays}[1]
{%
  % Arguments: <number of start day>
  % Macro for the greek week days
  % added by dsfounis
  %
  \setcounter{@day}{#1}%
  %
  \@ttforloop{@column}{1}{\value{@column} < \value{@colcount}}
  {%
    \ifthenelse{\equal{\value{@day}}1}{\daymark{\textgreek{Δευτέρα}}}{}%
    \ifthenelse{\equal{\value{@day}}2}{\daymark{\textgreek{Τρίτη}}}{}%
    \ifthenelse{\equal{\value{@day}}3}{\daymark{\textgreek{Τετάρτη}}}{}%
    \ifthenelse{\equal{\value{@day}}4}{\daymark{\textgreek{Πέμπτη}}}{}%
    \ifthenelse{\equal{\value{@day}}5}{\daymark{Friday}}{}% %%%%FIX HERE!
    \ifthenelse{\equal{\value{@day}}6}{\daymark{Saturday}}{}% %%%%FIX HERE!
    \ifthenelse{\equal{\value{@day}}7}{\daymark{Sunday}}{}% %%%%FIX HERE!
    %
    \stepcounter{@day}%
    \ifthenelse{\value{@day} > 7}{\addtocounter{@day}{-7}}{}%
  }%
}

I believe it should be in the document preamble, rather than a change in the timetable.sty file. Precede the code by \makeatletter and follow it by \makeatother, in this case. Why? Because if the package author changes it, you'll lose your change.

  • Thank you for your swift reply and suggestions :3 Unfortunately, I get the same result when I compile your code. Plus, a compiler warning. i.imgur.com/sg3mDI9.png – Dimitris Sfounis Mar 1 '15 at 14:52
  • @DimitrisSfounis First of all, fully update your MiKTeX. – egreg Mar 1 '15 at 14:57
  • @DimitrisSfounis egreg's code is for pdftex, but your image shows an error from xetex. – David Carlisle Mar 1 '15 at 15:06
  • @DavidCarlisle updating MiKTeX and recompiling with pdftex now. – Dimitris Sfounis Mar 1 '15 at 15:10
  • @egreg Finally updated by MiKTeX and compiled with pdftex. Your code works as I wanted. Thank you very, very much. – Dimitris Sfounis Mar 1 '15 at 15:28
