I am using a titlepage, that causes the following error:

Usage of package `fancyhdr' together(scrbook) with a KOMA-Script class is not recommended.

It appears to work fine, and I don't use package fancyhdr anywhere outside the titlepage. So I don't really need to fix the warning, instead I would like to supress it.

The only way I know to supress warnings in LaTeX is the silence package, but as far as I can tell, I always need to specify which package causes the exception.

How do I suppress this warning?

    Welcome to TeX.SE, Simon. In order to help you, you should always include a MWE (Minimal Working Example), which starts with \documentclass and ends in \end{document}. In your case, it is likely, that you can achieve the same effect, you got with fancyhdr by using KOMA-Scripts own mechanisms. Therefore a more elaborated description would also be helpful for you. Maybe you don't even need to suppress anything? – Jan Jan 19 '17 at 17:41

Using the silence package you mention works just fine:


\WarningFilter{scrbook}{Usage of package `fancyhdr'}



  • Thank you, this solved my problem. I was not aware it was scrbook throwing the warning and not latex itself. – Simon Eismann Jan 23 '17 at 16:35
  • That solution works and is a straight way to keep one's personal mental health. :D – MWiesner Feb 13 at 20:51
