I use a latex template on sharelatex and it works fine. However, I encounter the following issue when building it on my laptop (Ubuntu + Texmarker),

! Package babel Error: Unknown language `french'. Either you have
(babel) misspelled its name, it has not been installed,

This issue probably is caused by the template containing some french words. So I add the package babel,


Refer to Package babel Error: Unknown option francais' and Package babel Error: Unknown language 'french' (not 'francais'), I install the package texlive-lang-french with sudo apt-get install texlive-lang-french, but the problem still exists. How can I fix this problem?

  • For a start it would be nice to give a link to the template. You are using french for some reason, and this seems to not be found on your system. – Johannes_B Jun 13 '16 at 17:30
  • @Johannes_B, thx for pointing out this. I'll find it out and update my question. – SparkAndShine Jun 13 '16 at 21:41
