I am relatively new to LaTeX technology. 2 years ago I created my CV using Friggeri CV template on Windows. It worked flawlessly - it was fine from the installation, the program (TexWorks) generated PDF file etc. Not so long ago I changed my main OS to Linux (Mint 17.2) and I wanted to modify my CV on this system. From the beginning there were countless errors, including xcolor.sty, unicode-math.sty and others missing, ucharcat being available from 2015 releases of xetex (even though everything was updated) and so on. I tried installing texlive-full, texlive-base (separately), manually installing packages, but there always seemed to be next problem. I tried xetex, xelatex, lualatex and others.

Can anybody help me with this? After frustrating 4-5 hours of setting it up I logged on my Windows and done my job in 5-10 minutes... I can attach code, but I don't think it's necessary, because it works fine on Windows.

    You can see this link. Hope it helps. – GAVD Jan 24 '17 at 2:38
  • Sounds like a real headache, but you have not provided much in the way of useful information. xcolor.sty cannot be 'the' error, for example (though perhaps related to the error). I'm guessing a version mismatch between what hardcoded defaults the template requires, the current state of CTAN packages and OS-based installs (often a problem with these templates from the wild, in my opinion). Are you installing via Apt? If so, what version of TeX Live does Mint install from the repositories? If you are installing packages manually, are you sure you are putting them where they belong? – jon Jan 24 '17 at 3:18

    Linux systems package LaTeX their own way, so you're left guessing which Linux packages to install in order to get the right set of LaTeX packages. It is much easier in the long run just to install the full TeXLive setup from www.tug.org. – musarithmia Jan 24 '17 at 3:56
  • There is no frigerricv template. There are several. And all are different. Compare overleaf, sharelatex and latex-templates. From a supporters point of view, it is a real nightmare. – Johannes_B Jan 24 '17 at 10:09

    The question seems to really be: how to install a full TeX Live? – Johannes_B Jan 24 '17 at 10:12
