I have been given a LaTeX template by my university. They just sent me this folder (see picture).

They told me that diss.tex is the main file. I also put the error picture when compiling diss.tex.

I'm using TeXmaker on Ubuntu and I was used to have only one .tex-file, here I have many. Please help!

enter image description here The folder of the latex model

    Judging by the presence of Makefile, there is a compilation procedure that your university advises. Please post the content of any example .tex file and of the Makefile. May 18, 2016 at 18:49

    As novice to LaTeX I recommend you first to read some basic literature about LaTeX, for example The Not So Short Introduction to LATEX 2ε (tobi.oetiker.ch/lshort/lshort.pdf}), then provide minimal working example (the code, not images), a complete short document, which will show your problem. You should also give to us some description what you doing ...

  • I followed a tutorial on latex. I know how to work with just one .tex. With separeted .tex files, I'm new. May 18, 2016 at 19:08
  • It confuses me that a university provides a tool but does not provide the information needed to use that tool.

As the error says the compiler cannot find abntex2cite.sty file. Just download it from here and put it alongside `diss.tex' file.

  • I solved it by "sudo apt-get install texlive-full" May 19, 2016 at 1:09
  • The command basically installs a full package of latex compiler which also includes abnex2cite.sty.

Several files with .tex are always to make it easier to manage big projects, usually the main file contain \include{file name}or \input{file name} to include the other chapters. And for the the errors there is a missing package you have to download it from hereCtan. If you can use miktex (only on Windows ) it gives you an option while you set it up to download the required package without asking.

Note : at least read the not so short introduction to \LaTeX it won't take a lot of time.
