I try to create my CV using the following template two-columns, one page. I manage to find the fonts in .ttf format and installed them in my win7 system.

However, I get an error of "font-not-found" when I try to compile the xelatex file using texmaker and miktex 2.9

Update [16/07/2015]

Thanks to Leucippus I solved font problems. However, Texmaker provides the following warnings

How can I overcome these problems?

Thanks in advance

  • To fix the direct error you will have to obtain the .ttf, .tfm, etc font files and install them in the file folder where the latex resume is located. I changed the font to one I liked better, using the same procedure just listed. – Leucippus Jul 15 '15 at 20:31
  • Why should i do that since xelatex detects ttf installed in my system – Yorgos Jul 15 '15 at 21:31

    If the configuration that you have set up automatically finds the files then work with what you have. Otherwise, based on the fontspec documentation, mirrors.ibiblio.org/CTAN/macros/latex/contrib/fontspec/…, page 6 gives an example of listing the .otf (or .ttf, .tfm,...) file name. – Leucippus Jul 15 '15 at 21:38

    \underfull \hbox usually indicates that the line indicated is not full enough to be complete. Possibly adding a word or more fixes the error, or centering small word sets will justify the space requirements. Here is one cause of the bad-box error tex.stackexchange.com/questions/199635/… – Leucippus Jul 16 '15 at 14:01

    Font shape undefined could be a problem with the linking of the .ttf/.otf/etc file and the file being worked on. One method of solution may be to place a copy of the font file in the same folder as the document being worked on. Another cause could be that the required letter/shape/etc may not be defined by that font type. – Leucippus Jul 16 '15 at 14:09
