DMKE
the easiest way to do so: place the llncs.cls file in the same directory as your tex file
gio123
or from where i can dowload
where can i found that file?
is it in net?
DMKE
who told you to use llncs?
obviously, ctan does not know llncs: http://tug.ctan.org/cgi-bin/ctanPackageInformation.py?id=llncs
gio123
ok
it workls now
i pasted fine in the dir where i have late xfile
but in general where i have to add this file?

Gekz_
how to bullet point
itemize
boudiccas
murosai, what did you try to convert it in? i've had great success doing it in the gimp
glyj
Gekz_: I'm using french babel package, and \renewcommand{\FrenchLabelItem}{\textbullet} change the "-" to the bullet point.

Gekz_
and \item
which does bullet points properly and what not
glyj
Gekz_: with french babel package, the \item in the itemize package gives an "-" so, to swtich it to a bullet point, I use the command I gave.
Gekz_
oh
that's not what I was actually asking for, but thanks
glyj
Gekz_: \textbullet is the bullet point from itemize
|Steve|
murosai: Are you using pdflatex?
sweetandy
So, if I wanted to center chapter text...
\chapter*{\centering{Chapter One}}
|Steve|
sweetandy: use titlesec
sweetandy
Ah, yes
That would be the proper thing to do
:)
I'm typing up the beginning of a Stephen King book in LaTeX, just to see what it looks like.
It's.... gorgeous.
It's\ldots gorgeous.
^^that's what I meant
Stereo
sweetandy: in computer modern?
sweetandy: maybe you'll find the memoir package useful
and the mathpazo package I plugged a couple of lines above
murosai
|Steve|: yup using pdflatex
|Steve|
murosai: Then it can use the .png

Please describe the *semantics* of what you want to typeset, not the *way* you want to typeset it. E.g., ask "How can I typeset a list?" instead of "How can I indent a line and add a bullet in front?".

my spell checker is not working in texlipse

ah cool thanks
sweetandy
For pages 1--8 in my document, there's no additional spacing between paragraphs, and then suddenly, on page 9, there is extra spacing
I can't find anything that would cause this.
Maybe it's trying to fill the page?
marcellus
?
sweetandy
http://sweetandy.net/latex/
because page 10 starts with a new section
grodzilla
hi
sweetandy
Yes, it's just trying to fill space.
If I take out the last paragraph of section 1 or add a bit more, it spaces properly.
:/
marcellus
strange
to change the style of headings use ,,cs titlesec
fsbot
http://www.ctan.org/pkg/titlesec
sweetandy
I will definitely look into that

has anyone used xfig for drawing diagrams?
marcellus
no, no one, ever
GNUtoo
hi, is it possible to have some #ifdef in a latex source document,if so what software is needed?
BCMM
is there a "placeholder" in latex?
for example, if i am making an enumerated list and want a list number on its own on a line, i do \item 
is there a more correct way of doing this?
exs
hi
can someone helps me. i want to genereate code from http://tug.org/PSTricks/main.cgi

cause i cant generate something with pstricks
Kencode
how would i emphasize in a formulae fashion a letter in a sentence... such as "Let k be..."?
charon
Kencode: $$k$$ and please read a tutorial/introduction document such as ,,lshort
fsbot
lshort is, like, a (Not So) Short Introduction to LaTeX at http://tobi.oetiker.ch/lshort/
Kencode
thank you
Polarina
Where can I see how LaTeX would split words between lines if it were to split every word as often as it could?
danmc
Kencode: let $k$ be ....
charon
Polarina: \showhyphens{longwordhere}
(then look in the console output or .log)
exs
can someone explain how to use pstricks?
mickep
exs: Isn't that explained in the pstricks manual? What is your real question?
exs
mickep, u have some code but i cant compile it by own

marcellus
,cs pdftricks
fsbot
http://www.cam.ctan.org/tex-archive/macros/latex/contrib/pdftricks/
mickep
exs: maybe you need pdftricks
exs
mickep, what is that
i just know pstricks
mickep
pstricks just works for latex, to use pdflatex you need pdftricks
exs
mickep, is this a package?
mickep
exs: looks like one. (I'm not a pstricks user)
exs
iv get marcellus ! LaTeX Error: Option clash for package pstricks.

fsbot
Paste a sample at http://pastebin.tlhiv.org showing your problem in as little code as possible. Make sure it is a *complete* document, and if possible one that compiles! If your LaTeX aborts with errors, paste them too.
exs
marcellus
that doesn't compile for me
exs
marcellus, the error after i executed pdflatex http://paste2.org/p/770515
marcellus, but its the samplecode of http://www.tug.org/PSTricks/main.cgi/

hi
is it possible to change the name from Bibliography to Main Bibliography? \bibliographystyle{plain}
\bibliography{reference2}
marcellus
exs: have you looked at tikz?
use ,,cs tocbibind,, to add bibliography to toc
fsbot
http://www.ctan.org/tex-archive/macros/latex/contrib/tocbibind/
marcellus
\renewcommand{\bibname}{...}
exs
Marbug, tikz looks nicer. i will try it

master_of_master
hi, how can I create a document, that consist of 3 repeated (equal) column, that is defined only once
marcellus
repeated?
mickep
master_of_master: please describe your real problem. Is this was your real problem you could just copy and paste three columns...
master_of_master
the page should consist of 3 columns that are all the same
I'd like to make a flyer
the number of columns isn't fixed (3 was an example)
so I'd like to define a column and then "tell" LaTeX to put it x-times next to each other on one page
mickep
master_of_master: exactly the same output?
master_of_master
yes
mickep
\newcommand and then use that command and multicol package and change column every time?
geri
marcellus, i created a bibtex for my references...it includes urls...but they are not displayed...why not?
mickep
geri: use the url package
geri
i used: \usepackage{hyperref}
i included the bibliograhpy:
\bibliographystyle{plain}
\bibliography{reference2}
maybe i need to use another bibliographystyle
marcellus
,biblatex
fsbot
biblatex is The biblatex package is a complete reimplementation of the bibliographic facilities provided by LaTeX in conjunction with BibTeX. See http://www.ctan.org/tex-archive/help/Catalogue/entries/biblatex.html

will i need to change the bibliographystyle to display the url?
marcellus
yes
geri
to which one?
marcellus
pastebin the document
geri
plainnat ?
it looks strange;)

marcellus
that bib is broken - you use 'and' between names
geri
any idea?
broken?
mickep
geri
not an ,
mickep
geri: In my bib file it is written Author1 and Author2 and Author3 and...
geri
i changed it
mickep
Not sure what is the correct way though.
geri
how could you display an url?
mickep
I guess one should use a bib style that supports it. I never displayed an url in a bib as far as I remember.
geri
it works;)
\bibliographystyle{plaindin}
mickep
Fine.

How does one make the hyperlinked references color the number like [5] and not draw a colored box around it? I am using {hyperref} currently.
mercury^
Isn't the box a feature of the reader?
