[Darshan-users] No PDF file generation with darshan-summary-per-file.sh or darshan-job-summary.pl utility

Hi Phil,

Thanks for your reply. "multirow.sty" is present in /usr/share/texlive/texmf-dist/tex/latex/multirow with the initial installation of the below mentioned packages and texlive:

perl-Pod-LaTeX.noarch                                                  [

Now darshan-summary-per-file.sh and darshan-job-summary.pl are successfully creating the PDF files after installing other available latex packages with the dependencies using yum list \*latex\*  and yum install:

asciidoc-latex.noarch 0:8.6.8-5.el7

dblatex.noarch 0:0.3.4-11.el7

doxygen-latex.x86_64 1:1.8.5-3.el7

gnuplot-latex.noarch 0:4.6.2-3.el7

latex2html.noarch 0:2012-3.el7

latex2rtf.x86_64 0:2.3.8-3.el7

latex2rtf-debuginfo.x86_64 0:2.3.8-3.el7

Hi Preeti,

Sorry you ran into trouble with this- I've put some suggestions inline with your questions below.

I have recently started working with Darshan 2.3.1 on my system.  I have installed all the prerequisites: Perl, pdflatex, epstopdf, and gnuplot to enable darshan-job-summary.pl utility.

#### END: darshan-summary-per-file.sh

I am using the few benchmarks and darshan-test/example-output files to test the installation. There is no PDF file generation while running the darshan-summary-per-file.sh or darshan-job-summary.pl utility. Here are few questions:

a) Is the error message of darshan-summary-per-file.sh utility mentioned above linked to Darshan or PDFLatex?

This is a pdflatex error.

b) Is there any other dependency needed to enable darshan-summary-per-file.sh and other utilities?

Apparently so :)  We might be able to add safety checks to prevent this in the future once we figure out what your problem is.

c) If this is not a dependency error, What could be the reason for the error?

In my experience pdflatex errors are notoriously misleading, but it looks like the problem might be a missing multirow.sty file.  Can you check to see if this is present on your system?

On Ubuntu 15.04 it can be found in /usr/share/texlive/texmf-dist/tex/latex/multirow/multirow.sty and is a part of the texlive-latex-extra package.


Will greatly appreciate your response.
