# Undefined control sequence in komacv.cls

I'm quite new to this forum, please be nice to me. I'm using Texlive on Ubuntu.

I'm trying to write a CV by using LaTeX, so I downloaded the komacv class files from CTAN and followed the instructions in the README file: I copied the documentation komacv.pdf and the examples older into the doc directory in my local tex directory, i.e.

``````/usr/share/texlive/texmf-dist/doc
``````

and ran the latex command on the .ins file, thereby creating the .cls file. Then I was supposed to move said .cls file and the .sty files into my local tex directory,

``````/usr/share/texlive/texmf-dist/tex
``````

, and run the texhash command on it, but when I did that the first time, Texlive always complained about not being able to find the komacv.cls, so I moved those folders into the latex subdirectory in my local tex directory. I ran texhash on the whole tex directory though.

Luckily, texlive is able to find the .cls now, however, it's complaining about an undefined control sequence in it. This is the error message it's given me every time:

``````*(./example.tex

Does anyone know what I did wrong? It'd be very nice of you if you helped me.

• Please update your texlive distribution or at least try to install this package using `tlmgr`. – TeXnician Apr 17 '17 at 16:22
• @TeXnician unfortunately updating via tlmgr won't fix this until probably July. – David Carlisle Apr 17 '17 at 19:09
