To write French in my Latex documents, I've added "\usepackage[utf8]{inputenc}" to the preamble.

This statement prints the following error in different parts of the log file:

Package inputenc Error: Unicode char ⁠ (U+2060)
(inputenc) not set up for use with LaTeX.

  • It seems to be linked with your bibliography, but without a complete MWE, it's going to be hard to understand what exactly went wrong. Please edit your post. Nov 18, 2016 at 17:34
  • Bibliography file is in utf-8. Which detail about the bibliography do you want to know ?

  • If it is in the .bib as it seems, then the issue probably arises from how you are accessing your bib file. Traditional BibTeX, e.g., does not do well with UTF-8.

A slightly odd character to have in a tex source, but U+2060 is WORD JOINER which is normally taken as \nolinebreak so add


to your preamble if removing the character is not an option.

  • Error solved with U2060, But, I still have an error with another character: Package inputenc Error: Unicode char �\expandafter (U+4F0)(inputenc) not set up for use with LaTeX. ... a mobiso:QoSInformation ;

  • @Nasreddine yes you are:-) use \DeclareUnicodeCharacter{04F0}{!!!!I-AM-HERE!!!!!} and it might be easier to spot. Nov 18, 2016 at 20:59
