I've written document in LaTeX, but I don't know how to convert my .tex file into a PDF file. I'm using texMaker in the Russian language, and I couldn't find a way to typeset in this version of LaTeX.

Here is the view of my LaTeX:

How do I convert it into PDF in LaTeX?

When I run quick build, it gives me the following errors:

    Welcome! First of all, this is an English language site, so most user may not understand Russia -- therefore, change the language of the software before screenshoting. Secondly, I see that you did compile your document, and there are some errors. Maybe the cause is the configuration. Can you add a MWE and a screenshot of your Configure TeXmaker windows? – user156344 Dec 28 '18 at 5:45
  • Have you read how to use Texmaker? The main image on the Texmaker homepage shows a button called "Quick Build" and "View PDF". Have you clicked those? – Werner Dec 28 '18 at 5:48
  • sorry for Russian interface of program Latex I change it – Jahongir Sabirov Dec 28 '18 at 5:48
  • @Werner In the OP's original picture, we can see that he did compile the document (of course by something like "Quick Build"). The fact is, it didn't output a PDF file. – user156344 Dec 28 '18 at 5:50

    Stay away from thesis.cls -> en.m.wikibooks.org/wiki/LaTeX/Scientific_Reports – Johannes_B Dec 28 '18 at 6:12

The error you're receiving is that thesis.cls is not available. This stems from \documentclass{thesis}. My assumption is that, since you're unfamiliar with (La)TeX, you just assumed that if you want to write a thesis, you should use thesis as your \documentclass. However, this is obviously incorrect since the default distributions (MiKTeX and TeX Live) do not come with a thesis.cls by default. Instead, start with something like report or book. Then click on Quick Build to compile the document, after which you can View PDF.

  • Thank you it really works. Problem was in thesis instead of writing report – Jahongir Sabirov Dec 28 '18 at 6:38
  • Reading this answer i suddenly have a deja vu. I could swear we already have the same answer. – Johannes_B Dec 28 '18 at 9:31
