Find out what this file 'hv' is needed for. Maybe your template is a old one and hv is somehow
not needed anymore.

Please type another input file name

For me one thing seems quite clear: the hv-file (whatever it is) is missing. Install it or try to do
it without it. Hope this will help.



I have figured out that hv is referring to a helvetica font. I have not been able to figure out which debian package provides this font, or if it needs to be installed otherwise. I have just tried the ttf-mscore-fonts package with no luck.
