Prerequisites for building
Depending on your GNU/Linux distribution the package names may be different. Basically, you need the
texlive package, as well as whichever "extras" package contains the moderncv stuff.
On Arch Linux:
$ sudo pacman -Sy texlive-core texlive-latexextra texlive-fontsextra
$ sudo yum install texlive texlive-moderncv
$ sudo add-apt-repository ppa:texlive-backports $ sudo apt-get install texlive $ sudo apt-get --no-install-recommends install texlive-latex-extra
Mac OS X: download and install BasicTeX (a minimal TeXLive distribution) and then:
$ export PATH=$PATH:/usr/local/texlive/2017basic/bin/x86_64-darwin $ sudo tlmgr update --self $ sudo tlmgr install collection-fontsrecommended moderncv fontawesome
