Euro symbol in PDF

Dear list,

What is wrong and how can I fix it if the following:

  \documentclass{article}
  \usepackage{eurosym}

  \begin{document}
  \euro{10}
  \end{document}

produces correct .dvi output when processed with latex, but the Euro symbol does not show when processed
with pdflatex? I just get “10” in te PDF. No warnings. I did refresh the file name data base and updated
formats in the MikTeX settings. The package manager is version 2.9.4196, the eurosym package is packaged 2009-04-04.

Thanks!
Bastiaan.

Can anyone suggest what I should do? The full update log is in the attachment.

Windows API error 5 Access denied

I have MikTex 2.9 and Windows 8 running on a HP laptop.  When I try to use
"package manager" or "update MikteX" I get the above error message.  Both
require MikTeX to go to the MikTeX website, so I conclude I am being frozen
out of the site.  Does anyone have any ideas as to what to try first?  (I
am a registered MikTeX user, so that is not the problem.)
      Manually download?   I must be unpacking in the wrong root directory,
because I get (different) error messages when I try that.  In any case
package manager and update sound like "Downloading for Idiots", so maybe I
should try to get that to work first.
     Thanks

universalis package

This new package fails on installation by not finding necessary
fonts. This can be repaired by executing initexmf --mkmaps.

Outdated package - pgf

Hi.

I just noticed certain functionality missing from pgf, so I looked for
package updates...

In my miktex (v2.9) installation, the installed pgf is version 2.1, but on
the pgf page, http://sourceforge.net/projects/pgf/, the latest version is
3.0.

How can I update this package?

Sincerely,

Jörg

array not updated?

I wanted to try the polynomial example at
http://tex.stackexchange.com/questions/21246/polynomial-long-division-over-gfp
and was surprised to find that the `m` option for alignment is not supported.
I thought this was part of LaTeX since long ago:
http://www.ctex.org/documents/packages/table/array.pdf

I'm guessing I was misinformed ...
Is the current status of MiKTeX on this intentional?
How should I proceed?

Thanks,
Alan Isaac

biber problems

This is likely something asked before but I upgraded to Miktek 2.9 and now I
can not compile my references. I got some help on stackflow tex site but my
question was a bit different as now I have to use biber. The package manager
says the biber file is 1.5 but the current biber is 1.8, and I keep getting
an error of unidentified citation. I have looked at the files in package
manager and it has a directory of texmf/miktek/bin but I don't know what
this path is. I tried copying the newest biber version to miktek/bin in the
install directory and then refreshing the database but doesn't help. It
needs biber and not bibtex because I use apa style. How do I upload to
install the updated package from the windows binaries on the biber website?

Bibtex option --min-crossrefs does not work

I would need to disallow cross references to appear as full entries as in
the following example

S. Agarwal, R. Agrawal, P. Deshpande, A. Gupta, J.F. Naughton, R. Ra-
makrishnan, and S. Sarawagi. On the computation of multidimensional
aggregates. In Vijayaraman et al. [233], pages 506-521.

and instead entries should inherit their fields from their parent entry

S. Agarwal, R. Agrawal, P. Deshpande, A. Gupta, J.F. Naughton, R. Ra-
makrishnan, and S. Sarawagi. On the computation of multidimensional
aggregates. In Proceedings of the 22nd International Conference on Very
Large Data Bases, VLDB’96, ed. by T.M. Vijayaraman, A.P. Buchmann,
C. Mohan, N.L. Sarda (Morgan Kaufmann, San Francisco, 1996), pages 506-521.

According to this document
http://ctan.sharelatex.com/tex-archive/biblio/bibtex/contrib/doc/btxFAQ.pdf
this can be obtained by setting the --min-crossrefs option to a high value
as in

bibtex --min-crossrefs=9000 myfile

However this does not change anything and the cross references still appear
on their own :-(

Any way to avoid this behaviour ?

dvipdfm, type 3 fonts included

Hi,

on 2014-04-11 I installed the current MiKTeX 2.9 64-bit
(basic-miktex-2.9.5105-x64.exe). My operating system is Windows 7 Home
Premium 64 bit with SP 1.

I convert my dvi files via dvipdfm to pdf. Unfortunately, the pdf
quality of my documents is very poor because the pdf contains type 3
fonts. I know this is a common problem and I have already solved it
previously (many years ago, in times of MS-DOS). But with my previous
installation (basic-miktex-2.9.4521.exe) of August 2012 there were
none of these problems. Perhaps another important warning: When
running LaTeX, the system complains that some kanji.map file is
missing. I have no idea for what that could be necessary (I write in
German).

If you need more information please tell me.

Cheers, Olaf

Ask for help : Package titlesec affects the settings of tocloft

Hello, everyone.

 I am facing a problem when formatting my report edited by Latex.

I wanto to do the following two formatting

1.  to supress the line break after chapter title, for example
   Chapter 1 Exercise A
  to replace the default one
  Chapter 1
    Exercise  A

2. to append "Appendix x........#"' to TOC, replacing default "x........#"

I use package titlesec to do format 1 and use package tocloft to do format
2.
But I found the two package affect each other.
I can not get the two format at the same time.

Anyone can help me some, thanks in advance.

The following is the my minimal example.

\documentclass[a4paper,openany]{book}

\usepackage{tocloft}

\usepackage{titlesec}

\usepackage{nonumonpart}   %dont display page number on part cover page
