I’m currently working on a major new version of the datatool package. This may take a while. Please be patient. (Experimental version available for testing.)

Summary Typo in file dependency "glossaries.sty"

Sign in to subscribe to notifications about this report.

Description

The latex package "glosssaries" needs a file called "glosssaries.sty" but the
system only provides a file called "glossaries.sty" (one file has 'sss', while
the other one has 'ss'). I highly suspect that the file name contains a typo,
resulting in users being unable to use the glossaries latex package.

Minimal (not) working example:

```tex
\documentclass{article}
\usepackage{glosssaries}
\makeglossaries
\newglossaryentry{latex}
{
        name=latex,
        description={Is a mark up language specially suited for
scientific documents}
}

\begin{document}
foo bar qux \Gls{latex}
\end{document}
```
See that the latex "compiler does not find the file (with 'sss'):
```bash
$ pdflatex master.tex
This is pdfTeX, Version 3.141592653-2.6-1.40.22 (TeX Live 2022/dev/Debian) (preloaded format=pdflatex)
 restricted \write18 enabled.
entering extended mode
(./master.tex
LaTeX2e <2021-11-15> patch level 1
L3 programming layer <2022-01-21>
(/usr/share/texlive/texmf-dist/tex/latex/base/article.cls
Document Class: article 2021/10/04 v1.4n Standard LaTeX document class

! LaTeX Error: File `glosssaries.sty' not found.

Type X to quit or <RETURN> to proceed,
or enter new name. (Default extension: sty)

Enter file name:
```
For a workaround, users can manually specify the filename when being asked as "glossaries.tex". Clearly the glossaries package has a typo in the dependency. Note that "glossaries.sty" is part of the texlive-latex-extra package.

I have also reported this to the ubuntu bug tracker: [Link].

Evaluation

I'm sorry, I'm a bit confused. The incorrect spelling is in your MWE:

\usepackage{glosssaries}
I've run find . -type f -exec grep -H glosssaries {} \; on the source directories for glossaries.sty (and glossaries-extra.sty) and it hasn't come up with any match. If you are using a class or package that automatically loads the glossaries package, then you need to send a bug report to the maintainer of that class or package.

Thanks for the quick response. You're of course right, and the typo is in my code. I didn't think of that when troubleshooting. Seems I'm having one of those days where everything seems to fail.

Sorry for wasting your time and have a nice day!
