Latex issues

I can't find file `pgflibrarytikzpositioning.code.tex'.

Problem

  • Are you getting this error when trying to compile your latex document?

Solution

Thanks to Sean and http://tangopardo.com.ar/2cf7/2010/02/12/solving-the-tex-error-i-cant-find-file-pgflibrarytikzpositioning-code-tex

  • RHEL6/SL6/CENTOS6 has a very old version of PGF installed you will need to get a more recent version and install it into your own texmf directory
  • Get the latest version of the PGF software into your home directory on the UI (or at least a more recent version of PGF: http://sourceforge.net/projects/pgf/
[/home/lucien] $ mkdir texmf
[/home/lucien] $ cd texmf
[/home/lucien/texmf] $ mv ~/pgf_3.0.0.tds.zip .
[/home/lucien/texmf] $ unzip pgf_3.0.0.tds.zip
  Inflating........
[/home/lucien/texmf] $ ls
doc  pgf_3.0.0.tds.zip  source  tex
 [/home/lucien/texmf] $ rm pgf_3.0.0.tds.zip
[/home/lucien/texmf] $ mktexlsr .
[/home/lucien/texmf] $ ls
doc  ls-R  source  tex
  • Your latex should now pick up this local version of the PGF library.
