\documentclass[12pt]{article} 
\usepackage[nochapters]{classicthesis}
\usepackage{kpfonts}
\usepackage{amssymb}
\begin{document}
$\mathbb U$
\end{document}

is not giving me the $\mathbb U$ of amssymb. Anything else is ok.

What should I do?

EDIT: sorry, I forgot the most important: \usepackage{amssymb}

  • I realised it was a problem with amssymb.

  • With kpfonts you do not need amssymb, if both loaded, make use kpfonts is loaded last, as they define the same symbols and the last one loaded wins

  • I just prefer the look of \mathbb U with amssymb. And \usepackage{kpfonts} \usepackage{amssymb} works! It is just when I had classicthesis on top, that it doesn't.

Don't load amssymb. Just redeclare \mathbb at the right time:

\documentclass[12pt]{article}
\usepackage[nochapters]{classicthesis}
\usepackage{kpfonts}

\AtBeginDocument{\DeclareMathAlphabet{\mathbb}{U}{msb}{m}{n}}

\begin{document}
$\mathbb{A}\mathbb{B}\mathbb{U}$
\end{document}
