When using \usepackage{blindtext} vimtex throwing me a Compilation failed.

My setup is vim + vimtex and as compiler I am using latexmk.

PS: I had prior to that problems with \usepackage[enlgish]{babel} as well, but then I just moved it to the top just under the \documentclass this fixed that issue, but with blindtext it seems not to work.

    Welcome to TeX.SE! Which tex distribution do you use? Have you installed the complete or only a basic version? Could simply be that you have blindtext not installed ... – Mensch Apr 10 at 20:11

    Can you try to add the language as a class option? Then it is used by babel and blindtext. And I hope enlgish is a typo in your question and you use english in your document. If not, that language is undefined, – knut Apr 10 at 20:14
  • Thanks for the response. It might be, that blindtext is not installed. I have tried using english as a classoption for the document and it seems to work. There is no compile error. If blindtext is not installed, how can I get this package (I am new to LaTeX :/)? Oh and yes I typed it off the screen "enligish" is not a language for sure. :) – Helmut K. Apr 11 at 3:12
  • Oh hi, thanks for sticking with me. I have researched a little bit and I seems like vimtex (this is a plugin for vim to use LaTeX) uses TeXLive. I have to ask though what this logfile is you talk about. What file format does this file have? – Helmut K. Apr 12 at 3:41
