# moderncv-style giving error messages

I have the following MWE using moderncv

\documentclass[11pt,a4paper,sans]{moderncv}

\moderncvstyle{casual}
\moderncvcolor{black}

\name{Horse}{Horsey}
\makeatletter\renewcommand*{\bibliographyitemlabel}{\@biblabel{\arabic{enumiv}}}\makeatother
\begin{document}
\makecvtitle

\section{Education}
\cventry{2013--2016}{Ate grass on a field}{}{}{}{}
\end{document}


However, when I use fancy instead of casual, I get an error message of undefined control sequence. fancy is supposed to be part of the package though.

• It says it can't find moderncvstylefancy.sty -- I found the sty-file online and placed it in the folder, but then I got the error  undefined control sequence: \moderncvhead – BillyJean Feb 1 '16 at 13:58
• I updated my tex-distribution, it gives the same error – BillyJean Feb 1 '16 at 14:02

As result of our chat we found that the used version of moderncv is 1.5.1. That's the reason for the received error message

! LaTeX Error: File moderncvstylefancy.sty not found.


So an update of moderncv to the current version 2.0.0 is needed.

Sorry, I do not know how you have to do that with TeXLive on debian.

To update your latex distribution on debian, i guess you should run

sudo tlmgr update --self


and then

sudo tlmgr update --all

• It says no updates available – BillyJean Feb 1 '16 at 15:51
• Do you use texlive from debian repositories or from the tug.org homepage? Repositories do not always provide latest versions of packages. So you might have to install it manually. – HATEthePLOT Feb 1 '16 at 15:55
• I just opened a console and pasted in your commands. I'm not too experienced with these things. How do I install a package manually? – BillyJean Feb 1 '16 at 16:04
