Latex – Problems


I obtained the error

! LaTeX Error: File `logreq.sty’ not found

So I installed the package from ctan and then I obtained the error

! Package biblatex Error: Outdated ‘etoolbox’ package.

So I first located the old version

locate etoolbox

and removed it

sudo rm -r /usr/share/texmf-texlive/tex/latex/etoolbox/*

From I downloaded the new package and put it into the same folder. After

sudo texhash

I tried pdflatex again and obtained

! LaTeX Error: \thebibitem undefined.


more /usr/share/texmf/tex/latex/biblatex/biblatex.def

I checked the biblatex-version and obtained

% $Id: biblatex.def,v 0.9 2010/02/14 15:42:33 lehman beta $

The most current one on ctan can be found at

So I decided to update biblatex manually. First locate the old files:

locate biblatex

Then remove them and replace them with the newer ones. After that everything worked fine!
