suddenly won't compile

Postby tcm » Sat Aug 17, 2013 11:03 pm

Hi

I am using kile with texlive2013. And suddenly when i press xelatex nothing happens(no errors warnings...). then i tried pdflatex but nothing. I have no output pdf file anymore and the log and messages section only shows

  1. [XeLatex] myfile.tex=>myfile.pdf(xelatex)


then i went to the console and type

  1. xelatex myfile.tex


there was a log output now but still no pdf.

i attached the new and an old log file for comparison.

thank you

i searched for an answer but nothing.

Your lognew.log file has this
  1. ...
  2. [3
  3.  
  4. ] (./ΚΕΦΑΛΑΙΟ1.lot
  5. Runaway argument?
  6. {\numberline {3.5}{\ignorespaces \relax \fontsize {10.95}{13.6}\selectfont \ETC
  7. .
  8. ! Paragraph ended before \@dottedtocline was complete.
  9. <to be read again>
  10. \par
  11. l.9 ...ak or <return> to continue without it.}\par
  12. \let \reserved@d = *\def ...
  13. I suspect you've forgotten a `}', causing me to apply this
  14. control sequence to too much text. How can we recover?
  15. My plan is to forget the whole thing and hope for the best.
  16.  
  17. ! Missing { inserted.
  18. l.9 ...ut it.}\par \let \reserved@d = *\def \par }
  19. }}{51}
  20. Where was the left brace? You said something like `\def\a}',
  21. which I'm going to interpret as `\def\a{}'.
  22.  
  23. ! Extra }, or forgotten \endgroup.
  24. l.9 ...t it.}\par \let \reserved@d = *\def \

My suspicion is that there is some problem while inserting the lot file. Why don't you try a minimal file and check? Alternately, clear the aux, lof, lot, toc files and check again in (better in a console).

thank you. i deleted everything and did save us again and it worked.

I have two question, using the console to build is different from the menu icon?

I have 30 badboxes and 7 warnings which i ignore them. Should i pay attention and fix them?

Glad that it worked.

No. They are identical. Kile calls the needed programs.

You should *always* pay attention to the warnings and correct the Overfull boxes, especially. To help in the latter, you can use
  1. \documentclass[draft]{article}

With the draft option, the overfull bad boxes appear as black boxes in the output to help you in correcting the problems.

Remove the draft option, once everything is finalised and you see no warnings/errors.

I completely agree. Just wanted to point out a post with a little background to these overfull/underfull boxes: http://www.latex-community.org/forum/viewtopic.php?f=45&t=23050
