I am not sure why the minitoc is not showing.

my chapter1.tex file starts with

\chapter{} \minitoc

I tried \include instead of \input but didn't see any difference. I need to use the ociamthesis class as it is tailored to my university requirements. I tried reading few threads about it and still can't locate what could be different and how can i tell if the \dominitoc is actually working?

    \include{acknowlegements} has a typo. But help yourself by removing all non-relevant packages, try with book class etc... – user4686 Sep 26 '17 at 7:56
  • Did you ever figure this out? I'm having the same issue. – Alan Oct 20 '17 at 19:47

    @Alan The most important thing is having \dominitoc before \tableofcontents. – Johannes_B Nov 5 '17 at 10:24
  • Is there any news here? – Johannes_B May 10 '18 at 6:27
