Question 142548This solution looks extremely useful, however after compiling the given code, all I get is:

the following result in pdf  .

My guess is that there is an update to do to some packages to get the correct pdf (the question is from 2013) but which one? There is no diagnostic of missing files or packages. Console output follows:

            This is pdfTeX, Version 3.14159265-2.6-1.40.20 (TeX Live 2019/Debian) (preloaded format=pdflatex)

    It would have been polite to link the question: tex.stackexchange.com/questions/142548/…

  • I'm not sure about TeXLive 2019, but with 2021, I get that the TikZ libraries positioning-plus and node-families are both missing.

  • Me too, but you can find the solution on Texample (texample.net/tikz/examples/flowchart), i.e. you can download the two packages and put them directly in the working directory. Now this is not enough...

    So "There is no diagnostic of missing files or packages." is incorrect. But you're saying that if I were to download those files from the website, then I don't end up with any other errors?

  • absolutely, you can add tikzlibrarypositioning-plus.code.tex and tikzlibrarynode-families.code,tex (downloaded from GitHub) in your working directory and then you get the log above, no diagnostic. I tried a minimum example with the same result, only the frames, no frontground text.
