Till last update of MacTeX my files were compiled nice. After update I can't compile them. Example code:


\usepackage{geometry} % Меняем поля страницы
\geometry{left=1.5cm}% левое поле
\geometry{right=1.5cm}% правое поле
\geometry{top=1.5cm}% верхнее поле
\geometry{bottom=1.5cm}% нижнее поле


Hello world

\begin{tcolorbox}[sharpish corners,colframe=gray,title={\textbf{* Attention}}]
Bla Bla Bla Bla

After starting of the compilation process stops with this message:

Package hyperref Message: Driver (autodetected): hpdftex.

(/usr/local/texlive/2017/texmf-dist/tex/latex/hyperref/hpdftex.def (/usr/local/texlive/2017/texmf-dist/tex/latex/oberdiek/rerunfilecheck.sty)) (/usr/local/texlive/2017/texmf-dist/tex/latex/geometry/geometry.sty) (./protex.aux) (/usr/local/texlive/2017/texmf-dist/tex/context/base/mkii/supp-pdf.mkii [Loading MPS to PDF converter (version 2006.09.02).] /usr/local/texlive/2017/texmf-dist/tex/context/base/mkii/supp-pdf.mkii:175:

Compilation finishes well only if lines \usepackage{graphicx} and \usepackage{tcolorbox} commented. Could you help, please?

    The compilation fails on TL 2017 on Linux too, but I suspect babel here

  • But it is connected to tcolorbox as well

  • @ChristianHupfer no tcolorbox is the problem. It is a clash between turkish and graphics. Jul 29, 2017 at 19:37
  • @UlrikeFischer: The error occurs also by commenting graphicx out and keeping tcolorbox, the later does not load graphicx, so either it is tcolorbox in addition or some other package that does load graphicx ... just checked: It's tcolorbox and its chain-loading of other packages downto graphicx

    The problem is with supp-pdf.mkii. It doesn't like the active = from turkish. You can avoid the error by loading graphicx before babel. Jul 29, 2017 at 19:53
