[Tex/LaTex] LuaLaTeX and xypic


The newest versions of the package xy-pic does not work properly with LuaLaTeX, version 0.95.0. Consider the following simple example:



\xymatrix {
  A\ar[r]\ar[d] & B\ar[d]\\
  C\ar[r] & D


The first error message, which appears while compiling this with lualatex is

Package xypdf Error: pdfTeX version 1.40.0 or higher is needed for the xypdf

It’s possible to avoid this error message by adding the following line at the beginning of /usr/share/texlive/texmf-dist/tex/generic/xypic/xypdf.tex

\input /usr/share/texmf/tex/generic/context/luatex/luatex-pdf.tex

However, even then LuaLaTeX produces errors:

ERROR: Undefined control sequence.
\line@ ->\setboxz@h {\xP@setsolidpat \xP@stroke 
                                                {0 0 m \xP@coor {\cosDirecti...

and the result looks like this:

Best Answer

Until xypic is updated, you can use the luatex85 compatibility package:

% no not with luatex \usepackage[T1]{fontenc}
