Before I formatted my computer (Windows 7 Pro 64 bit) I had MiKTeX (32 bit installed) and with respect to Minion Pro everything was smooth. I have been using ShareLaTeX since then and today I installed MiKTeX and Minion Pro, and somehow something is broken.

\documentclass[10pt,a4paper]{book}

\usepackage[
  fullfamily,
  opticals,
  textosf,
  mathlf,
  loosequotes
]{MinionPro}

\usepackage[
  toc,
  eqno,
  enum,
  bib,
  lineno
]{tabfigures} %employs tabular figures

\usepackage[
%  protrusion  =true,
%  expansion   =true,
%  tracking    =true,
%  letterspace =50,
%  final
]{microtype}

\usepackage[T1]{fontenc}
\usepackage[utf8]{inputenc}
\usepackage[american]{babel}
\usepackage{lipsum}
\begin{document}
test
\end{document}

The above setup works without a problem (pdflatex). However, as soon as I uncomment any of the `microtype options I get:

! LaTeX Error: Option clash for package microtype.

See the LaTeX manual or LaTeX Companion for explanation.
Type  H <return>  for immediate help.
 ...                                              

l.26 

The package microtype has already been loaded with options:
  [kerning=true]
There has now been an attempt to load it with options
  [ protrusion =true, ]
Adding the global options:
  kerning=true, protrusion =true, 
to your \documentclass declaration may fix this.
Try typing  <return>  to proceed.

(Adding the option described in the error message does not help.)

If comment Minion Pro options:

\documentclass[10pt,a4paper]{book}

\usepackage[
%  fullfamily,
%  opticals,
%  textosf,
%  mathlf,
%  loosequotes
]{MinionPro}

\usepackage[
  toc,
  eqno,
  enum,
  bib,
  lineno
]{tabfigures} %employs tabular figures

\usepackage[
  protrusion  =true,
  expansion   =true,
  tracking    =true,
  letterspace =50,
  final
]{microtype}

\usepackage[T1]{fontenc}
\usepackage[utf8]{inputenc}
\usepackage[american]{babel}
\usepackage{lipsum}
\begin{document}
\lipsum
\end{document}

I get:

Package microtype Warning: Unknown slot number of character
(microtype)                `\j '
(microtype)                in font encoding `T1' in inheritance list

So (hopefully without being labeled as "too local") what might it be that is broken?

    The package MinionPro loads microtype already as you can read from the documentation. So you might get some option clash. Maybe using \PassOptionsToPackage{<options>}{microtype} is an option before loading MinionPro

  • @faltfe If that is the case, why did I not have that problem before?

  • I don't know this was just a wild guess and a starting point.

    @faltfe Your suggestion magically solves everything. You should perhaps make it an answer.

Just converting my comment to an answer as suggested by @blackened
