Difficulty compiling minimal complete example #92

I just updated minted to version 2.1, and I’m encountering an issue when attempting to compile the minimal example in the manual:

int main() {
  printf("hello, world");
  return 0;

When I compile that by running (in Terminal, on OS X)

pdflatex -shell-escape test.tex

compilation fails with

! Undefined control sequence.
<argument> \PYGZob 
l.2 ...G{n+nf}{main}\PYG{p}{()} \PYG{p}{\PYGZob{}}

I have a feeling I’ve done something bone-headed to produce this, but I’m at a loss.

Your example looks fine and works for me. If there is a directory _minted-test, you might delete that and try compiling again. Also, you might check that your Pygments version is recent. If it still doesn't work, you could try \usepackage[cache=false]{minted} to see if that makes any difference.

Deleting _minted-test fixed it, don’t know how I didn’t think to try that before. Thanks for your help!

I had that right now with \PYGZgt being the undefined control sequence. Deleting the cache dir and recompiling did the trick, too.
