How to use this LaTeX class

Clone this repo into your TEXMF_LOCAL directory (I suggest /usr/local/texlive/texmf-local/tex/latex/local).

$ cd /usr/local/texlive/texmf-local/tex/latex
$ git clone https://git.solarchemist.se/config/texmf-latex.git local

You may have to refresh your texhash or similar, and then you should be set.

The LuaLaTeX UU thesis class

This is my own rewrite of the official (but unsupported) XeLaTeX class for PhD thesis at Uppsala university.

To use it, start your main tex file with:

[... the rest of your document ...]

You will have to compile your document using lualatex, like this:

$ lualatex thesis.tex

But you probably use a nice makefile or something for that :-)

The XeLaTeX UU thesis class

I have made some slight alterations to this class compared to the original UU class. Use it like this:


Compile your document with xelatex.

UU colour profiles (CMYK and RGB)

The CMYK and RGB colour definitions are entirely based on the Uppsala university graphical profile from around 2014. They are probably outdated now.

They simply use xcolor commands to define a bunch of colour names. If you want to use any of these colour names in your document, load the package in your document preamble (choose CMYK or RGB colourspace depending on how your document will be printed).


Please note that both uuprintcolor* packages depend on the xcolor package.
