I have a problem when I use 'siunitx' and 'mathenv' together.

I wanted to add 'siunitx' to use '\meter' and so one but it seems to have a problem with 'mathenv' :

\documentclass[a4paper]{article}

    % Mathématiques
\usepackage{mathenv}

\usepackage{siunitx}


\title{Test}
\author{Cécile Moulin}
\date{}

\begin{document}
\maketitle
\tableofcontents

text text text
\end{document}

gives the following error :

    The mathenv package hasn't be maintained for almost two decades. – egreg Jun 12 '17 at 12:56
  • From the readme (ctan.org/pkg/mdwtools) Contains a collection of mathematical environments with a theme of aligning things in columns. Maybe it's better to check out the famousamsmath package or mathtools (builds on amsmath) package which also provide alignment options. – Dr. Manuel Kuehner Jun 12 '17 at 13:19

    If you don't know why you are using a package, don't use it and wait for an error message. If you don't get one, celebrate! – John Kormylo Jun 12 '17 at 19:06

    I'm voting to close this question as it was caused by loading an unnecessary package – samcarter_is_at_topanswers.xyz Jun 20 '17 at 10:30
