LaTeX book compilation[edit]

I have extracted the source code of the book as it says in the first page but when I try to compile it writing "pdflatex main.tex" it says that pdflatex isn't installed. What does it mean that the book has a configured version of pdflatex then?

Physics-related pending change[edit]

There's been a pending change to OCR A-Level Physics/Fields, Particles and Frontiers of Physics/Medical Physics for 24 days now, which I haven't reviewed because I have no idea wether the change is correct. The only other editor of the page (Benjamin.doe) hasn't edited for almost a year, so is there anyone else around here who has enough of an understanding of Medical Physics to tell if the change is legitimate?

Nope , it is not correct and thus I've rejected it. Medical physics is not required here , a close look at the equation means that only some maths work is required to find out whether the final step is equal to the third step(as is the case with derivations).--Leaderboard (discusscontribs) 16:14, 24 April 2015 (UTC)
Oh yes, I see that know. I had just looked at the changes to the code, from which I did not see that it was just simple calculus. Thanks, Leaderboard. Liam987 talk 16:25, 24 April 2015 (UTC)

Missing Book[edit]

I spent several hours, yesterday, creating and saving a book only to come back, today, and find it missing. How can I retrieve it?BuckyBlanPen (discusscontribs) 16:57, 14 May 2015 (UTC)

Hi, BuckyBlanPen. There isn't anything listed under contributions (nor under deleted contributions) for your registered account. Were you logged into that account? --Pi zero (discusscontribs) 05:15, 15 May 2015 (UTC)
There's nothing in the deletion log for anything that could be what you are talking about. QuiteUnusual (discusscontribs) 12:37, 15 May 2015 (UTC)
