I need help!

Postby namiisc » Fri Mar 18, 2016 8:50 pm

Hello guys,

2 years ago, I build my CV with the friggeri template. It worked fine.
But I wanted to build a new one updated with my current address and data.

Problem:
I still had my old TexStudio and miktex library installed.
I tried to compile it, but it gives me errors:
See cv-error-1
cv-error-1.png
cv-error-1
cv-error-1.png (23.89 KiB) Viewed 7952 times


Then I installed a new TexStudio and a new Miktex and tried again:
See cv-error-2
cv-error-2.png
cv-error-2
cv-error-2.png (39.09 KiB) Viewed 7952 times


Then I downloaded the template again (cv-10, friggeri) and tried it with the new version, but again I got errors:
See cv-error3
cv-error-3.png
cv-error-3
cv-error-3.png (54.69 KiB) Viewed 7952 times

Can somebody help me?
Im on Windows 8.1 (x64).

Is there a step by step description on how I can get this done?
Is TexStudio with miktex a bad idea? I'm frustrated :(

Kind regards and thanks in advance.

You will have much more success in getting any helpful hint if you prepare a minimal working example. Showing screenshots with blurred out parts isn't helpful at all.
The smart way: Calm down and take a deep breath, read posts and provided links attentively, try to understand and ask if necessary.

This error in particular is related to changes in the BibLaTex updates, as explained here:

http://tex.stackexchange.com/questions/ ... formatting

I myself am a bit of a noob and haven't attempted to make the required corrections to the friggeri-cv class, however basically the
  1. % \ifblank{#3}{}{#3\space}#1%
on line 290 needs to be changed to adhere to the new \DeclareNameFormat command parameters.

As OP pointed out, even downloading and attempting to compile the template without modification using XeLaTex will fail with this error. Hopefully and Admin can assist in modifying the template to work with the new version of BibLaTex.

This has been added to the bug tracker, an update will be available a few days after biblatex v. 3.4 comes out.

Hello,

i actually upgraded to Ubuntu 16.04 and the friggery cls compiling breaks by the

\ifblank{#3}{}{#3\space}#1% - Issue.

Do we have any workaround for now to fix this error?

This is due to an update of biblatex, which is used for your publications. An update will come when biblatex has been updated once more.

You can download a development version from sourceforge, but i don't know when the next release to CTAN will happen.

Can i modify the friggeri class to work with biblatex 3.3? Or just modify it for 3.4?

Sure, just rename the file and add a comment that you have done modifications.
