They are not errors, but warnings from the gensymb package, and if you look in the .log file I think you'll find Package gensymb Warning: Not defining \perthousand. Package gensymb Warning: Not defining \micro. So it has nothing to with either beamer or Kile. If you don't use those two symbols, don't worry about it. If you want to get rid of those ...

The standard viewer for Kile is Okular. Under Settings >> configure Kile >> Tools >> Build >> viewPDF you need to add --unique to the options. This will make Okular only open a single window.

Simple answer: no. The align environment works very differently from equation: all of the material has to be read before any typesetting. (In that sense, it's similar to the beamer class frame environment, which people also ask similar questions about.) The material to be aligned has to be read before it is typeset to allow measurement, so it's not an option ...

sudo apt-get install texlive-latex3 solved my problem.The reason behind this problem was, latex mathematical style file mathtools.sty was missing. When i installed texlive-latex3 those missing files were added. This is lighter than the full texlive.

The undefined command is, in both cases, the the last token on the line after the error message, which is the documented behaviour here. Thus the issue is not with TeX or the amsmath package but with the parsing of the log file by Kile which appears to be in error given your description. Perhaps you should raise a bug report with the editor. Note that the ...

Kile doesn't delete it - it collapses everything between \begin and \end. Kicking on the triangle will expand it again. This works for every environment you open; for example: \begin{itemize} \item Some item \item another item \end{itemize} When you look at the rownumbers where the triangle thing is it skips row 76-78.

You need to edit the xml file that provides the markup definitions. Depending on the distro, the file is /usr/share/apps/katepart/syntax/latex.xml ~/.kde4/share/apps/katepart/syntax/latex.xml /opt/share/apps/katepart/syntax/latex.xml /usr/share/kde4/apps/katepart/syntax/latex.xml You then need to add your environment name to <!-- filter the ...

Kile (and many other editors for various languages) have something often referred to as 'code folding' or 'code collapse'. For LaTeX, Kile will offer to 'hide' entire environments from view to make it easier to get a handle on the overarching structure of your document. I don't use Kile, but I imagine it would offer the same blue area (and indicative ...

The syntax highlighting of Kile is governed by the general syntax highlighting scheme of katepart. The relevant file for LaTeX is called latex.xml, and can be found on Unix-like systems in /usr/share/apps/katepart/syntax/latex.xml or ~/.kde4/share/apps/katepart/syntax/latex.xml or /opt/share/apps/katepart/syntax/latex.xml or /usr/share/kde4/apps/katepart/...

As always, egreg has a great alternative solution for my crazy idea (kept at the bottom of this update, for historical reasons). :) There's a tool named texloganalyser (gotta love the spelling!) which might help us. It's shipped in TeX Live, so a quick texdoc texloganalyser (which redirects us to a perldoc texloganalyser) gives us all the flags we need: -...

You have to open the file .blg that was produced. In that file there are all the indications about the compilation of the bibliography and, if any, the detailed description of the errors.

The latest stable version of Kile (2.1.3) does not offer automatic updates. You can however update to the development version (Kile 3 beta 1) to get automatic updates and live preview. The dev version is in beta from quite some time and I use it in my production environment without issues. It is still a beta by the way, so there may be some rough edges. To ...

Just make sure that automatic checking is enabled: Tools > Spelling > Automatic Spell Checking

This can be achieved by creating a custom auto completion file. Such a file has the extension cwl and (on my systom) has to be saved under ~/.kde4/share/apps/kile/completion/tex. The # is a comment char in such a file. In such a file you write the commands with the text you want to appear in the arguments. # custom auto-completion file # \mycommand{date}{...

You can create projects in Kile. In Kile you can create and work with projects. A project is a group of LATEX, graphic, BibTEX or other files that contain all the information that is used to build your complete document. A typical project would be a document consisting of several chapters, written in different .tex files; all of them could be included in ...

This error is generated by the textcomp packaged imported by gensymb. You can prevent it by explicitly importing textcomp before gensymb: \usepackage{textcomp} \usepackage{gensymb} ...

If you use Kile 3 beta (here I use 2.9.60) -- the one with live update of the .pdf I mean, then it is easily done: under Kile >> settings >> configure Kile >> Appearance you have a 'Document Viewer' setting and you can tick 'show in external window' -> problem solved. For older versions of kile I cannot be sure -- but you do not have live preview on those,...

I tried what was described here and it did not work. I found this link from the University of Illinois and their suggestions worked; I'm working in Fedora 17, in case it makes any difference. Here is what they suggest: Open some LaTeX file in Kile Open "Settings -> Configure Kile..." Click "Tools -> Build -> LaTeX" Select the "Modern" ...

I was looking for the same thing, and could not find it. Below is a Kate script I've written to manage indentation for {} \begin and \end, handling escape characters. The script is submitted in the Master-branch in Kate's repository. I won't update any changes here. If it checks out, they plan to include it in the next release. If you want to try it out, ...

It's just a warning, which tells you, you didn't set a backend to manage your bibliography, so biblatex uses the fallback biber. If you want to get rid of the message, you can choose manually between bibtex, bibtex8, bibtexu and biber. Just add backend=xxx in your biblatex line. Since you didn't modify the code (and hence your outcommented string says it), ...

In Kile 2.1.3 at least: View --> Line numbers. Shortcut key is F11.

You probably have tabs in your input file. You can, however, fix it without changing your input file, with either fancyvrb or listings; both packages allow also for making the type size smaller, so that the code fits in the margin. \documentclass{article} \usepackage{fancyvrb} % for simple solution \usepackage{listings,color} % for colored solution % for ...

I have sucessfully used the following way: Remove tex-live-2009 sudo apt-get remove texlive* (kile gets uninstalled too) Install tex-live-2012 (http://www.tug.org/texlive/acquire-netinstall.html) Create modified kile deb package without dependency to old tex using the following shell commands (and then install it) srcpkg=kile_2.1.0-1ubuntu1_amd64.deb ...

Yes, Edit --> Block Selection Mode, or Ctrl + Shift + B. This switches the mode on/off. When it is on, selection with mouse/keyboard is block selection.

I could reproduce the problem with Kile 4.14.9: Kile expects the root document to contain the \documentclass command. Since it is hidden inside preface.tex, Kile thinks, you want to call LaTeX on a file without \documentclass. There is an easy trick too convince Kile, that this is the right file, add \iffalse\documentclass{article}\fi at the top of the ...

The bibtex log shows you are missing the bibtex style your document specifies. In TL2013 If I run the command kpsewhich authordate1.bst Then it shows that style is located at /usr/local/texlive/2013/texmf-dist/bibtex/bst/beebe/authordate1.bst You could get the file from ctan but it should be more easily installable via whatever package system your tex ...

(this answer only works for Linux users, sorry) There are two issues here. If you have a problem with the previewer user interface provided by Okular, I think there is not much you can do. You would probably need to fork Kile entirely to change that. If you have a problem with the PDF backend (poppler) you can compile a different PDF backend for Okular, ...

if you think that including the large images is what's taking most time, process just the images and enough surrounding text to make sure they're doing what you want them to do. then add [draft] using one of these methods in the preamble: \documentclass[draft]{...} \usepackage[draft]{...} this will suppress loading and processing of the images, but will ...

The error message you mention is triggered by a missing closing brace in \dfrac (or one of its variants), as the following simple example illustrates: \documentclass{article} \usepackage{amsmath} \begin{document} $\dfrac{a}{b$ \end{document} Processing the above document yields Runaway argument? {b$ \end {document} ! File ended while scanning use of \@...
