Example: The tkz-berge graph package

Published 2007-05-08 | Author: Alain Matthes

The tkz-berge package is a set of convenient macros for drawing typical textbook graphs. It is built on top of TikZ' node and edge constructs, but adds several shortcuts for placing, arranging and connecting vertices. Visit the package's home page to see more examples.

Documentation only available in French. However, the code and the numerous examples speak for themselves.

    I wanted to use this example as a template for my graphs, but I have some problems converting it.

    I'm converting the document via $ wget http://media.texample.net/tikz/examples/TEX/tkz-berge.tex $ xelatex tkz-berge.tex

    I'm using MaxTex 2009 on OSX. I followed the installation manual as far as I could, installing the missing .sty like so

    wget http://altermundus.com/downloads/packages/tkz-graph.sty wget http://altermundus.com/downloads/packages/tkz-arith.sty wget http://altermundus.com/downloads/packages/tkz-berge.sty sudo mkdir /usr/local/texlive/2009/texmf-dist/tex/latex/prof sudo mv tkz-* /usr/local/texlive/2009/texmf-dist/tex/latex/prof sudo texhash

    Before I installed the .sty files I got error messages. Obviously!

    Now I got

    ! Package pgf Error: No shape named K is known.

    Any hints for resolving the issue?

    Another developer/user was so nice to point out

    The example uses round braces for the last argument of \Vertex


    The examples in TKZdoc-graph.pdf uses curly braces:


    It helped me at least.
