Latex – Problems

logreq-installation

I obtained the error

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

So I installed the package from ctan http://www.ctan.org/tex-archive/macros/latex/contrib/logreq/ and then I obtained the error

! Package biblatex Error: Outdated ‘etoolbox’ package.

So I first located the old version

locate etoolbox
/usr/share/doc/texlive-doc/latex/etoolbox
/usr/share/doc/texlive-doc/latex/etoolbox/LICENSE.gz
/usr/share/doc/texlive-doc/latex/etoolbox/README
/usr/share/doc/texlive-doc/latex/etoolbox/etoolbox.pdf
/usr/share/doc/texlive-doc/latex/etoolbox/etoolbox.tex.gz
/usr/share/doc/texlive-latex-extra-doc/latex/etoolbox
/usr/share/doc/texlive-latex-extra-doc/latex/etoolbox/LICENSE.gz
/usr/share/doc/texlive-latex-extra-doc/latex/etoolbox/README
/usr/share/doc/texlive-latex-extra-doc/latex/etoolbox/etoolbox.pdf
/usr/share/doc/texlive-latex-extra-doc/latex/etoolbox/etoolbox.tex.gz
/usr/share/texmf-texlive/tex/latex/etoolbox
/usr/share/texmf-texlive/tex/latex/etoolbox/etoolbox.def
/usr/share/texmf-texlive/tex/latex/etoolbox/etoolbox.sty

and removed it

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

From http://www.ctan.org/tex-archive/macros/latex/contrib/etoolbox/ 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.

Using

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 http://www.ctan.org/tex-archive/help/Catalogue/entries/biblatex.html

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!
