Hello,

when running latex in 12.3, I get the following error:

$ latex labels.tex

Searching the web, I found

and

https://forums.opensuse.org/english/get-technical-help-here/applications/484928-kile-lyx-texlive.html#post2540021

but installing texlive-collection-latexextra, texlive-collection-fontsextra
and
texlive-filesystem did not help at all.

Any additional recommendations?

Open a bugreport.

Ciao, Marcus
