# Build errors while using minted package

When i execute latex source, i get following error.

! Undefined control sequence.
l.42 \newmintinline
[command]{LaTeX}{}
The control sequence at the end of the top line
of your error message was never \def'ed. If you have
misspelled it (e.g., \hobx'), type I' and the correct
spelling (e.g., I\hbox'). Otherwise just continue,
and I'll forget about whatever was undefined.


what am i missing?

• Could you supply us with some example code that replicates your current problem? We call this a minimal working example (MWE). It should start with \documentclass and end with \end{document}. – Werner May 7 '15 at 17:22
• Are you using minted 2.0? Only the latest version supports inline. – G. Poore May 7 '15 at 20:41
• i have installed texlive-latex-extra for minted package... is there any way to know which version i am using? I am using Ubuntu 14.04, if that is helpful. – Chintan Patel May 8 '15 at 5:30
• @G.Poore Can you make an answer? – egreg Aug 1 '15 at 21:51

\mintinline, and thus \newmintinline, are only supported in minted versions 2.0+. This error could be caused by using earlier versions of minted` in which these commands do not exist. The latest version may be obtained via the TeX Live package manager or directly from CTAN.
