    LaTeX: moderncv doesn't compile

    Hi,
    I am trying to write my cv using the moderncv package. However I can't get it to compile. Has anyone had the same problem or knows what could be wrong? The package is definitely installed (to make sure I have the right version I installed the package from ctan).
    I attached the output from compiling the example, can anyone help?
    Thanks,
    Flo

    Hi,

    consider to update your moderncv package. You are using v0.5 2006/09/09, the current version is v0.7 2008/06/17.

    Re: moderncv doesn't compile

    I've had some problems with moderncv too. In the end I downloaded the latest version I could find and put it directly in the directory where I was writing my cv.

    Note that the older version wanted you to define a \moderncvstyle, the new one wants \moderncvtheme. There are a few differences between versions. Check the template files you are using were actually obtained from the same place as the moderncv style files you downloaded, to ensure they are actually compatible.

    The version in Texlive seems rather old, even in the Jaunty repos. I presume this will be updated at some point.
