Friggeri .aux error

Postby DavidM » Sat Dec 15, 2018 1:05 pm

Hi everyone,

I'm running into a problem compiling the Friggeri template with the latest Miktex and Texnic Center. I have already added backend=biber to \RequirePackage[...]{biblatex} in friggeri-cv and tried 'biber cv_10' in command prompt.

The command prompt gives the error 'cannot find control file cv_10.bcf'.
The Texnic Center output gives the error 'BibTex > I couln't open file name cv_10.aux' and 'MakeIndex > Input index file cv_10.idx not found'.

Does anyone know where I went wrong?

You have to compile with XeLaTeX first, this will create the bcf file.
Then go to the command line and use biber.


TeXniccenter is a bit outdated these days. Have you thought about switching to a more modern editor?
The smart way: Calm down and take a deep breath, read posts and provided links attentively, try to understand and ask if necessary.

Thanks for the reply :) I already tried compiling with XeLaTeX (from TeXniccenter and command line), without success...

I wasn't aware that TeXniccenter is outdated. Is there another editor? Although I doubt this will solve the problem...

Hi David,

you have to run biber, such as by

biber cv_10

at the command line.

Thanks Stefan! Unfortunately that brings me back to my first post: xelatex gives an error, so no bcf, and therefore biber can't run either...

What solutions are there? Trying a different latex distribution?

I don't need a bibliography, so this is particularly frustrating. To start with the xelatex problem: I removed all bibliography related lines from cv_10 and tried to compile. This is the error log:

That template used to have some strange stuff going on and was never updated. If you don't need a bibliography, don't bother. Rename the class file to Davidm.cls and add a comment in there. Delete all lines that are related to package biblatex.

By the way in that case also adjust the beginning of your document to \documentclass[germanthesis,demo]{Davidm}. Renaming is common since one should never change an original class or style file but make a copy for own changes.

Johannes and Stefan, thank you very much for your help!

Miktex kept giving me problems regardless of the solution, so I installed MacTex on my other computer. This works fine!
