    Welcome to TeX.sx! A tip: If you indent lines by 4 spaces, they'll be marked as a code sample. You can also highlight the code and click the "code" button (with "{}" on it).

    I think it is probably the mthod you are compiling. You need to run pdflatex followed by makeindex and then pdflatex. I am unable to try your sample MWE as it contains spurious characters that result in compile errors. Nov 23, 2012 at 8:07

In TeXmaker run Quickbuild, then from the menu Tools->Makeindex, then Quickbuild again. Or press F1, F12, F1.
