I want to change the color and thickness of headsepline and fromrule using the standard scrlttr2 class with the options:

headsepline=on
fromrule=aftername
  • You are using a very old version of KOMAscript (v3.12). The current version is 3.18. If you have to use 3.12, you have change to scrpage2 and use other commands. Start by updating KOMAscript. – Sveinung Jul 15 '15 at 10:30
  • That said, I used version=3.12on my MWE, and it worked without problem. Are you sure you are not copying any invisible characters when you copy-paste into your Latex-editor? – Sveinung Jul 15 '15 at 12:19
  • Installed texlive from source. Now I dont get error messages anymore. Thanks! – stackunderflow Jul 15 '15 at 13:22

The following MWE gives red, 5pt line on page one and two:

\documentclass{scrlttr2}
\usepackage{scrlayer-scrpage,xcolor}

\KOMAoption{headsepline=true,
            headsepline=5pt:,
            fromrule=aftername}

\addtokomafont{headsepline}{\color{red}}
\addtokomafont{fromrule}{\color{red}}
\makeatletter
\@setplength{fromrulethickness}{5pt}
\makeatother

\begin{document}
\begin{letter}{%

            Main street\\
            2300\enspace\ PAMPLONA%
}

Bulls are nice, but the last general meeting was about one year ago.
I want to remind you, that the constitution of our
club advises you to make a general meeting every
six month. Because of this I expect the executive
board to detain such a meeting immediately.

\closing{Thank you}

See page 226 and page 54 in the KOMA-script manual (v3.18).

  • @stackunderflow - Does it work if you replace \KOMAoption with \KOMAoptions? – Arash Esbati Jul 15 '15 at 8:47
