I am trying to compile my code using fancyhdr package but it doesn't compile it properly. Can someone kindly advise how to fix the issue? Here is what I am compiling:

  • Compiling your example with pdflatex, I have the following error: ! Package pdftex.def Error: File ./images/logo.png' not found.` (which is normal since I don't have your file logo.png) When commenting out this, the compilation ends without error. Could you please be more explicit about your error?

  • I compiled it with pdflatex as you advised and it is compiled with no error! But still I can't see any header.

  • There are hundreds of document classes called Thesis.cls (but none in standard distributions such as texlive) please link to the one you are using, I note you are using \rm which has not been defined by default in LaTeX since 1993, so if the error you get is that \rm and \sc are undefined, that would be why.

  • Unrelated but \usepackage[utf8,latin1]{inputenc} is nonsense. Your file can't have two input encodings at the same time. Commented Nov 26, 2019 at 11:02

    You are using \pagestyle{plain}, and plain style has no header. Commented Nov 26, 2019 at 11:04
