## \jobname works in 2013 but not in 2020

 So, I gave up and now have a new old Mac running TeX Live 2020 under HighSierra alongside the old old Mac running TeX Live 2013 under Snow Leopard. (Schultz, if you so much as smile, I will drink that case of beer you have yet to pick up which will make me sick as I rather drink wine and that will be on your head.) I have attached a MWE that works fine with TeX Live 2013 under Snow Leopard but not with TeX Live 2020 under High Sierra. I really don’t want to change my file setup so I think I really need \jobname. Best to all, —schremmer----------- Please Consult the Following Before Posting ----------- TeX FAQ: http://www.tex.ac.uk/faqList Reminders and Etiquette: https://sites.esm.psu.edu/~gray/tex/List Archives: http://dir.gmane.org/gmane.comp.tex.macosx                https://email.esm.psu.edu/pipermail/macosx-tex/TeX on Mac OS X Website: http://mactex-wiki.tug.org/List Info: https://email.esm.psu.edu/mailman/listinfo/macosx-tex MWE.zip (24K) Download Attachment

Howdy, First, it's nice to hear from you. You've been very quiet recently. You never asked but I like wine better than beer too! :-) > > I have attached a MWE that works fine with TeX Live 2013 under Snow Leopard but not with TeX Live 2020 under High Sierra. > > > > I really don’t want to change my file setup so I think I really need \jobname. > > Best to all, > —schremmer I immediately run into a problem that the scrpage2 package cannot be found. This is the line in Preamble.sty \usepackage[nouppercase]{scrpage2} where it is loaded. In fact that package is not part of TeX Live 2020. Please check where it's located in TeX Live 2013 (suppressing a smile, just in case you change that to a case of wine) by running `kpsewhich scrpage2.sty` in Terminal and letting me know what it returns. I also went to CTAN and searched for that package with no result.

The package was part of KOMA-script bundle.  It is now obsolete and deprecated.  A few years ago, KOMA started issuing warnings that it was deprecated as part of the compilation process. Koma class provides alternatives.  See .

Walker, Curmudgeon at Large Howdy, Thanks for the information. I've changed that to using the scrlayer-scrpage package and can get past that problem now. However, now I run into another error about writing files: pdflatex: Not writing to ../Text-contents/1.aux (openout_any = p). So it appears that there is need for a configuration change of TeX Live to permit that operation.

Small comment: There's no need to load Justin's preamble package.  Comment out the \usepackage line in the document files, and exactly the same error occurs. So the MWE isn't really an MWE. In any case, Herb's diagnosis is correct.  If you change each \include to \input, compilation goes through without problems.

Changing \usepackage[nouppercase]{scrpage2} to \usepackage[nouppercase]{scrlayer-scrpage} in MWE/Stylesheets/Preamble.sty AND changing the TeX Live 2020 configuration variable from `openout_any = p` to `openout_any = a` it all seems to work fine. I don't like it, but it works. Still not smiling. :-( Good Luck, Herb Schulz (herbs at wideopenwest dot com) ----------- Please Consult the Following Before Posting ----------- TeX FAQ: http://www.tex.ac.uk/faqList Reminders and Etiquette: https://sites.esm.psu.edu/~gray/tex/List Archives: http://dir.gmane.org/gmane.comp.tex.macosx                https://email.esm.psu.edu/pipermail/macosx-tex/TeX on Mac OS X Website: http://mactex-wiki.tug.org/List Info: https://email.esm.psu.edu/mailman/listinfo/macosx-tex
