I have following chunk of text:

\begin{tcolorbox}[boxrule=0pt,arc=0pt,colback=gray]
tar: Ignoring unknown extended header keyword 'SCHILY.fflags'\\
tar: Ignoring unknown extended header keyword 'SCHILY.fflags'\\
tar: Ignoring unknown extended header keyword 'SCHILY.fflags'\\
tar: Ignoring unknown extended header keyword 'SCHILY.fflags'\\
tar: Ignoring unknown extended header keyword 'SCHILY.fflags'\\
tar: Ignoring unknown extended header keyword 'LIBARCHIVE.xattr.security.capability'\\
tar: Ignoring unknown extended header keyword 'LIBARCHIVE.xattr.security.capability'\\
tar: Ignoring unknown extended header keyword 'LIBARCHIVE.xattr.security.capability'\\
tar: Ignoring unknown extended header keyword 'LIBARCHIVE.xattr.security.capability'\\
tar: Ignoring unknown extended header keyword 'LIBARCHIVE.xattr.security.capability'
\end{tcolorbox}

And screenshot represents latex output of this text.

tcolorbox output.

First 6 lines are formatted ok, but next lines are not ok, how do I align them properly (to the left)? And after box, in text, I have indent that I do NOT want to have. How do I fix it?

    And \noindent before the paragraph after the box.

    Try increasing the width of the text block.

  • @Mico It is already \textwidth hence increasing with is not a good idea.

  • @HarishKumar - But the width of the text block can be increased locally, right? :-) The solution given in your answer -- to reduce the font size locally -- is even better, though.

  • @Mico Yes it can be increased by the option oversize =<length> option or enlarge left by and enlarge right by options.

Use flushleft upper as the option to tcolorbox

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage{tcolorbox}
\begin{document}
  \begin{tcolorbox}[flushleft upper,boxrule=0pt,arc=0pt,colback=gray]
tar: Ignoring unknown extended header keyword 'SCHILY.fflags'\\
tar: Ignoring unknown extended header keyword 'SCHILY.fflags'\\
tar: Ignoring unknown extended header keyword 'SCHILY.fflags'\\
tar: Ignoring unknown extended header keyword 'SCHILY.fflags'\\
tar: Ignoring unknown extended header keyword 'SCHILY.fflags'\\
tar: Ignoring unknown extended header keyword 'LIBARCHIVE.xattr.security.capability'\\
tar: Ignoring unknown extended header keyword 'LIBARCHIVE.xattr.security.capability'\\
tar: Ignoring unknown extended header keyword 'LIBARCHIVE.xattr.security.capability'\\
tar: Ignoring unknown extended header keyword 'LIBARCHIVE.xattr.security.capability'\\
tar: Ignoring unknown extended header keyword 'LIBARCHIVE.xattr.security.capability'
\end{tcolorbox}
\end{document}

enter image description here

With some font size and margin (left & right) adjustment like this:

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage{tcolorbox}
\begin{document}
  \noindent
  Some text
  \begin{tcolorbox}[fontupper=\footnotesize,flushleft upper,boxrule=0pt,arc=0pt,left=2pt,right=2pt,colback=gray,after=\ignorespacesafterend\par\noindent]
tar: Ignoring unknown extended header keyword 'SCHILY.fflags'\\
tar: Ignoring unknown extended header keyword 'SCHILY.fflags'\\
tar: Ignoring unknown extended header keyword 'SCHILY.fflags'\\
tar: Ignoring unknown extended header keyword 'SCHILY.fflags'\\
tar: Ignoring unknown extended header keyword 'SCHILY.fflags'\\
tar: Ignoring unknown extended header keyword 'LIBARCHIVE.xattr.security.capability'\\
tar: Ignoring unknown extended header keyword 'LIBARCHIVE.xattr.security.capability'\\
tar: Ignoring unknown extended header keyword 'LIBARCHIVE.xattr.security.capability'\\
tar: Ignoring unknown extended header keyword 'LIBARCHIVE.xattr.security.capability'\\
tar: Ignoring unknown extended header keyword 'LIBARCHIVE.xattr.security.capability'
\end{tcolorbox}
Some text here
\end{document}

you get this:

To stop indenting after the box, you can use after=\ignorespacesafterend\par\noindent as the option to tcolorbox.

  • @MarkoFrelih Is your tcolorbox upto date? Can you update and try again?
