Hi Aditya,

Thanks for getting back to me.

I did a fresh checkout and tried to compile, I uncommented out these lines from the beginning of macros.tex.

L3 \setupcolors[state=start]
L16 \setupcite  [interaction=start, compress=no,color=] %darkgreen]

L276-278 in env-thesis.tex


It's still the same;

I followed the same steps. Downloaded the files from http://www.eecs.umich.edu/~adityam/publications/thesis/thesis.tar.gz

unzipped them, removed t-bib.tex from the current directory, made the changes indicated by you above, and did "context thesis". Everything compiles files (there is one warning about Delicious-Bold.otf).

And have you seen this error;

! LuaTeX error ...nimals/tex/texmf-local/tex/context/base/core-syn.lua:71: attempt to call field 'process' (a nil value)

An error like this usually means that luatex or mtxrun is old.

I am using context version version: 2008.11.10 21:40 (hmmm... that is after a fresh update from the minimals, which is strange) and LuaTeX, Version snapshot-0.31.0-2008120715.

I do not know if something broke in a newer version of context, but for that I will first need to figure out why my minimals are not being updated.

Since I was at it, I redid the local change in t-bib so that I can have citations of different colors. Also changed a few other macros, to work well with colors (I had stopped playing with colors a while back ...). I am uploading the changed files and the typeset pdf file at


Try to download and compile this and see if it works. In the mean time I will investigate why minimals aren't being updated on my machine.
