## General • pgf missed package

Hi all,
I am working on a presentation using beamer and I would like to display a series of images with a specified delay. I found the following code:

Code:  •  Open in writeLaTeX
\frame{\only<1>{\begin{centering}  \pgfimage[scale=.5]{fish1.jpg}  \par\end{centering}} \transduration<2>{5} \only<2>{\begin{centering}  \pgfimage[scale=.5cm]{fish2.jpg}  \par\end{centering}} \transduration<3>{5} 

\only<3>{\begin{centering} \pgfimage[scale=.5cm]{fish3.jpg} \par\end{centering}}}

I got a message error that I missed a required package.
Can anyone tell me the suitable package for that?
Thank you!

## General • Re: LaTeX => PS => PDF

I got this error also “Theres was an error opening this document. This file can not be found”. What I did is changing the command line argument in the viewer tab from “%bm.ps” to “%bm.pdf”. Thanks

## General • Re: Compilation works fine in TeXworks, not in TeXnicCenter

I found the problem. BTW, this problem appeared in other ocasions. If someone is facing problems with this, my fix for Win7 was:

• delete TeXNicCenter;
• delete MiKTeX;
• install TeXNicCenter on c:\TeXNicCenter;
• install MiKTeX on c:\MiKTeX;

I had problems with the path c:\program files during some tests. Probably this was due to the space between ‘program’ and ‘files’.

Regards
Jaraqui

Press <STRG + R>, type cmd and hit enter. A black box should open; now type the name of the executable (you might have to look it up in a link) and hit enter again. TXC should start.

Do you know anybody using LaTeX? This could be something fixed within 2 minutes when sitting just in front of the machine.

An alternative to TXC could be txstudio

Ok, I wasn’t sure that terminal = command prompt. Launching TXC from the command prompt/terminal works. But double clicking it works, too. It isn’t until I try to open a tex file or try to create a project that TXC shuts down.
I don’t know anybody who is familiar with TXC. So I decided to switch to TexMaker. That seems to works just fine so far.
Anyhow, thanks for chiming in.

I advise you to do as every Wind0ws user often does. Uninstall the program, reboot your system and install texniccenter again. Be aware, that TXC 2.0 is stable and should be used without hesitating over version 1.0

If the problem persists, try to open the program via the terminal, i hope there will be some useful information. The maintainer would be greateful for feedback: Texniccenter support.

TexnicCenter 2.02 64Bit. But I also tried with the 32 Bit version.
Uninstalling and rebooting didn’t help. How do I go about creating a TexnicCenter project via the command line? Or what do you mean with “terminal”?

## General • TeXnicCenter simply shutting down! No error message.

Hallo,

I encountered a huge problem with TexnicCenter. To make it short: It’s not working AT ALL.
When I try to create a new empty project TexcnicCenter simply shuts down without ANY error message whatsoever. When I name my empty project “Test” the only files that get created before the program shuts down are:
- Test.tcp
- Test.tex

Not sure if this is all that’s supposed to be created for an empty project. Nontheless, the major problem is the program simply shutting down.

I can’t even open existing .tex files (created with an older TexnicCenter version). The same happens.

My OS is Win7 64 Bit. I tried both the 32bit and the 64bit MikTex distribution and installed them in C:\MikTex.

Not sure what’s going on here. Google was not help either.
I would really appreciate any help!

Thanks a lot!

## General • Incompatible Language File after Upgrade

I upgraded TeXnicCenter (TXC) from a very old version to the current stable version (2.02). Everything works fine except that I get the following error message when I start the program.

The language file for the selected language is not compatible with this version of TeXnicCenter. The default language (English) will be used instead.

I’d like to use the German version.

I’d appreciate it if someone could point me in the right direction how to get rid of this message.

Thanks!

## General • Re: Compiled PDF not opened in Adobe Reader 11

Once again. The Ad0be Reader is not recommendable when editing LaTeX documents because it is uncomfortable regarding forward and inverse search between source code and PDF output. It does not support SyncTeX and therefore is only usable for viewing (and perhaps printing) the finalized document. The developers of TeXnicCenter (TXC) have decided for good reasons to make Sumatra PDF the standard viewer.
