I am trying to compile a document with Russian language and using the fonts from cm-unicode. Code:



\setmainfont{CMU Serif}
\setsansfont{CMU Sans Serif}
\setmonofont{CMU Typewriter Text}

Build command:

latexmk -xelatex -outdir=build document.tex

And error message:

! Package polyglossia Error: The current latin font CMUTypewriterText(0) does n
ot contain the "Cyrillic" script!

And I get an error with any font.

What am I doing wrong?


1 Answer 1



\setmainfont{CMU Serif}
\newfontfamily{\cyrillicfont}{CMU Serif}
\setsansfont{CMU Sans Serif}
\newfontfamily{\cyrillicfontsf}{CMU Sans Serif}
\setmonofont{CMU Typewriter Text}
\newfontfamily{\cyrillicfonttt}{CMU Typewriter Text}
  • You actually don't need to define the family for the regular and sans fonts, only for the teletype. Probably a duplicate of tex.stackexchange.com/questions/91507/….

  • This isn't really an answer. Using the code might solve the problem, but an answer explains itself and why it works. Feb 16, 2020 at 18:34
