Description James Buckle 2007-03-29 14:32:31 UTC
Description of problem:

Nomencl.sty is a '00 version. Although it is possible to figure out, most online
reference material pertains to newer versions with \makenomenclature instead of
\makeglossary. Documents created on most windows versions are not
cross-compilable due to the windows versions using latest versions.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
2000/12/03 v3.1a

I hope this is the right place to note this. Thanks.

Prolly not, kile is simply a tex front-end, you're likely more interested in
Core/tetex (re-assigning now).

Comment 2 Rex Dieter 2007-03-29 14:40:18 UTC
reassigned core/tetex

Comment 3 James Buckle 2007-03-29 14:42:22 UTC
Thanks, sorry - youre absolutely right.

Comment 4 Jindrich Novy 2007-04-10 13:57:50 UTC
I updated the nomencl style in rawhide.

Comment 5 Fedora Update System 2007-04-13 19:37:07 UTC
tetex-3.0-34.fc6 has been pushed for fc6, which should resolve this issue.  If these problems are still present in this version, then please make note of it in this bug report.

Comment 6 James Buckle 2007-07-04 18:27:45 UTC
I'm not sure about in FC6 but F7 I now get the updated nomencl.sty but the
makeindex style doesnt match the .sty?

Comment 7 James Buckle 2007-09-10 08:54:35 UTC
Seeing as this apparently isnt going to be fixed heres a workaround,


keyword    "\\glossaryentry"
keyword    "\\nomenclatureentry"

preamble   "\\begin{theglossary} \n"
postamble  "\n\n\\end{theglossary}\n"

preamble   "\\begin{thenomenclature} \n"
postamble  "\n\n\\end{thenomenclature}\n"

All should work then.

Comment 8 Roland Wolters 2007-12-02 12:47:31 UTC
Thanks for the workaround. Is this bug known upstream?

Comment 9 Jindrich Novy 2007-12-02 12:53:27 UTC
tetex upstream doesn't exist, Thomas Esser left the project. We are now moving
to TeXLive.

Comment 10 Aleksandar Kanchev 2008-03-17 17:17:02 UTC
Created attachment 298287 [details]
the matching for the nomencl.sty included in tetex-3.0-44.8.fc8

I'm using Fedora 8 with tetex-3.0-44.8.fc8
and is still old.
I'm attaching the new version here. The file
/usr/share/texmf/makeindex/ should be replaced with this one.

Comment 11 Jindrich Novy 2008-03-17 17:47:09 UTC
Exactly this revision of nomencl is used in TeXLive 2007. Please update to
TeXLive to fix it. On F8 please use this repo:
