### Package Manager Problem

I just wanted to draw a TikZ picture. This requires pgf, tikz and some
other packages. I have access to the administrators account and wanted
to make these packages available to all users.

I startedt the MiKTex 2.9 Package Manager (Admin) and selected the first
required package "pgf". When I started "install". The Pakcage Manager
did this:

starting package maintenance...
installation directory: "C:\Program Files\MiKTeX 2.9"
package repository:
http://mirrors.dotsrc.org/ctan/systems/win32/miktex/tm/packages/
lightweight database digest: 8bf1629e89c2ebe3259d18f353cdfe44
going to download 5606409 bytes
going to install 412 file(s) (1 package(s))

5606409 bytes, 625.22 KB/Sec
extracting files from pgf.tar.lzma...

After the download I get the problem report:

MiKTeX Problem Report

### \input|"command"

Is the syntax \input|"command" supported? (MiKTeX 2.9)
If so, can you provide an example that works? (Windows 7.)

Thanks,
Alan Isaac

### Automatic uninstallation of Miktex (and maybe also silent)

Hi everybody,

automatic and silent installation of miktex basic is not a problem but I need also an automatic and silent uninstallation.

If I use "C:\Program Files (x86)\MiKTeX 2.9\miktex\bin\internal\uninstall.exe" or
"C:\Program Files (x86)\MiKTeX 2.9\miktex\bin\internal\uninstall-admin.exe" i always have to click
manually "remove"
within the window which will appear when one of the uninstaller is used.

Anybody has a clue to this automatically as the installation is done?

Best regards

Sascha Osdoba

### Latexmk fails to run because of old File::Path dependency

Hey all,

I've just been struggling with an issue where the bundled version of Perl
doesn't include the correct version of File::Path.  I get this message when
trying to run latexmk.exe:

File::Path version 2.08 required--this is only version 1.08 at
d:\MikTex\scripts\latexmk\perl\latexmk.pl line 121.
BEGIN failed--compilation aborted at d:\MikTex\scripts\latexmk\perl\
latexmk.pl line 121.

An important point to note, this problem was masked for a long time by the
fact that I had Strawberry Perl installed (though apparently it only has
that affect when installed via Chocolatey).

What I'm wondering is if anybody knows how to manually upgrade this
dependency, or even if they know how the included perl within miktex works
and where that dependency lives...

Thanks!

### dvipdfmx

The configuration file for this program specifies the map file kanjix.map
which isn't available in MiKTeX.

### stix update

The recent update of the stix package supports LaTeX/pdfLaTeX; however
I found I had to manually enable the map file stix.map.

### Failed installation of MikTeX

Hi all,
I downloaded the MikTex package from their site (version 2.9.5105). The
installation fails repeatedly (I had the same with a previous version
2.9.4813).
The attached jpg-file shows both the screen message and the last part of
the logfile.
Does anyone have any idea on why this fails? And more importantly, how I
can avoid this problem.
I am using Windows 7, Home Premium with Service Pack 1.
Thanks,

Rob Rodenburg

### installation of miktex packages

Hi,
I am a newcomer to miktex and latex. I would appreciate it if I can get
help on the following points:
1. I have installed the complete version of miktex from the TUG dvd. I woud
like to know if I can install with a procedure similiar to the one I use
for R. That is, install just the base version of Miktex with the essential
packages in a folder (called as, let's say, Miktex29). I woud like to
install all the other packages in a separate folder (called as, let's say,
OwnFolder). When I decide to update Miktex to the next version, I just have
to install the base version in the Miktex30 folder. And I can update the
rest of the packages in the OwnFolder. Indeed, I would like to update all
the packages at any time, in between the Miktex versions. I am not sure how
I can make all this work with the package manager. Please let me know how I
can do this.
2. I resently have some .sty and .cls fies saved in the following path :
C:\texmf\tex\latex\misc
I would like to install some packages like foilstex. They have .dtx and
.ins files in them. I would like to have help in installing them. How do I
do it? Do I install them in the same texmf folder? As I understand it, I
would have to create a whole lot of subfolders for having the TDS
structure. Do I create a seperate texmf2 folder for these files and include
them in the root structure? I am not sure how all this will work out. I
have found some fragmented information in the manuals and on the net. I am
not sure how I can piece together all this information. I woud appreciate
any help that I can get.
Thanks,
Ravi

### How to move a picture to the left

Hi folks,
I am using the following code to import picture:

\hspace{-15mm}
\begin{center}
\begin{figure}[!htb]
\vspace*{-15mm}
\par
\begin{center}
%\epsfig{file=math.eps}%, scale=0.80,angle=0}\vspace*{-8mm}
\includegraphics[scale=0.9]{results/may_sd_missing.pdf}\vspace*{-25mm} {}
\vspace*{0mm}
\end{center}
\caption{All school districts of Ohio in 2010.}
\label{ohsd}
\end{figure}
\end{center}

But the margin of the right is smaller than the left; I would like to move the picture about half of inch to the
left. Could someone help me with that?
Thanks,
Wu

P.S. another question:
If I turn the picture around 90 degree by this command:
\begin{center}
\begin{figure}[!htb]
\begin{center}
%\epsfig{file=math.eps}%, scale=0.80,angle=90}\vspace*{-8mm}
\includegraphics[scale=0.9]{results/may_sd_missing.pdf}\vspace*{-25mm} {}
