This question already has an answer here:

Could you provide me a MWE for using psvectorian package?

I tried

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage{psvectorian}
\begin{document}
  \psvectorian[height=1cm]{102}
\end{document}

It gives back this error message:

Undefined control sequence. \psvectorian[height=1cm]{102}

Maybe the installation of the package is not complete. How can I install psvectorian properly?

  • Are you compiling with latex or xelatex? – user31729 Jul 8 '15 at 20:37

    The undefined control sequence that's reported is \c@lor@to@ps, not \psvectorian. – egreg Jul 8 '15 at 20:51

This requires latex or xelatex since it makes use of PostScript \specials (being a PsTricks package) not available with pdflatex.

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage{psvectorian}
\begin{document}
\psvectorian[height=1cm]{102}
\end{document}

If it should be compiled with pdflatex or lualatex, use the package auto-pst-pdf in addition to provide the automatic conversion to .pdf. In any case, --enable-write18 or --shell-escape must be enabled for this!

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage{psvectorian}
\usepackage{auto-pst-pdf}
\begin{document}
\psvectorian[height=1cm]{102}
\end{document}
