What is the accessibility workshop? And why does the link bring me to chat?
Whatever it is it is in '2 days' + or - 24 hours, presumably. So even the schedule is impractically vague. :)

I had a qustion regarding .sty file
25

First suggestion would be, Check if the caption.sty file is somewhere on the system $locate caption.sty If it is not installed, most probably the package is not on the basic configuration of texlive. I used the command$ apt-cache search caption | grep tex and found the following packag...

Thanks for the answer! I just had a last question, How this will change for Tex Studio?

@TorbjørnT. thank you

Ahah, "Tugboaters on board please" (Follow his remark for a minute or so)

A real scandal! One of the best pizza places in Munich now serves pineapple pizza. (Yet the pizza fisica is really good and I guess @egreg might like matematica... ;-)

@marmot Grrrr! Well, I never eat pizza abroad.

@egreg Some people are claiming Munich is the most northern city of Italy, though. At least during Oktoberfest you might tend to believe it (even though I have not been there in this Millennium. ;-)

@cfr latex team talking to Ulrike and Ross Moore about tagged pdf with perhaps input from here if you are not in Rio
@L.K. the behaviour of latex isn't affected by the editor you use to write the source file,

1:36 PM
@cfr We are going to talk about ideas/code/etc., as the team and Ross are in the same place
@cfr As there is going to be a live stream of the talks, etc., I thought points might come in from chat as well as in the room
@PauloCereda Quack! ;)

@JosephWright local quack = quack or l3.quack
:)
@DavidCarlisle There's an English bloke sit nearby. :)

@PauloCereda \quack_quack:

@yo' ooh

@yo' \c_quack_tl, I suspect ;)

@JosephWright well, \cs_new:Npn \quack_quack: { \tl_use:N \c_quack_tl }

Can the experts here consider discussing my question in the accessibility workshop? tex.stackexchange.com/questions/442327/…
I just noticed this in the announcement section of the tex.stackexchange homepage. Coincidentally I had posted a scenario detailing a use-case of accessibility. I don't know if this falls outside the scope of your workshop tomorrow.

Do I have to worry about spaces, underscores or any special characters with '\IfFileExists

@DavidCarlisle Thanks. I need to install physics.sty. I can use this and it will work there also, I mean in Tex Studio
It doesn't seem to work after that, saying missing physics.sty

Hello everyone,

I just found out that arara has been completely renovated, which made me ask if the following rule needs or not to be edited for compatibility

!config
identifier: crop
name: 'PDFcrop'
commands:
- 'pdfcrop @{ini} @{margins} @{ getBasename(file) }.pdf @{ getBasename(file) }-tmp.pdf'
- '@{ isWindows("cmd /c del", "rm -f")} @{ getBasename(file) }.pdf'
- '@{"cmd /c rename"} @{ getBasename(file) }-tmp.pdf @{ getBasename(file) }.pdf'
arguments:
- identifier: ini
flag: "@{ isTrue(parameters.ini, '--ini') }"

4:47 PM
never mind, I found the rc.jar tool and used it :)

5:16 PM
@Diaa Cool! Did it work? :)
I am at the TUG meeting, so my messages might be delayed.

6:11 PM
@Krishna No, sorry. Imho your problem is much to special. It doesn't fit in a workshop that tries to sort out basic, kernel related problems.

6th century ducks.

@AlanMunn Where is this from?

@UlrikeFischer Ravenna.

@AlanMunn I should have known -- I even saw it ;-).

@UlrikeFischer The mosaics are amazing.

@AlanMunn yes it was very impressive.

6:43 PM
@AlanMunn I see. The ancient versions of tikzducks were much more pixelated. Well, if one thinks about it, not too surprising. ;-)

@marmot yes resolution has improved in the intervening 1500 years.

@AlanMunn Yes, impressive progress due to @samcarter ;-)

7:04 PM
@PauloCereda Yes it did, but why I got unnamed task in the log for even pdflatex?

@samcarter Are you sure?

@marmot :) I stand corrected!

@samcarter ;-)

^^^ Re-using the Roman ducks from @UlrikeFischer dies ater image

@samcarter If you ever happen to be in this region, go to Kleintiefental, many (!!) of my relatives live next to this hut ;-)

7:19 PM
@marmot Oh, that is not too far from me! Maybe I can fit in a trip in the summer holiday :)
@marmot Would you share the crystal ball code?

@samcarter See, sometimes a crystal ball can be pretty useful ;-) (Exit the BOB=Bayerische Oberlandbahn at Geitau and then follow the directions to Hoch)miesing, and at the fork where you could get there going left or right go right ;-)
\documentclass[tikz,border=3.14mm]{standalone}
\usepackage{tikzmarmots}
\begin{document}
\begin{tikzpicture}
\marmot[whiskers,teeth,blush]
\shade[ball color=cyan,opacity=0.7] (0.95,0.87) circle (3.3mm);
\end{tikzpicture}
\end{document}`

8:20 PM
@marmot Thanks for the code and the directions!

@marmot ^^^ a fortune teller duck to go with your crystal ball marmot!
