I downloaded the file ltxprimer-src-1[1].0.tar (it is in the book form) and what you downloaded is probably a pdfscreen version.

Manoj has already given you some suggestions. Run latex ****.tex instead of tex. In the above file I am also encountering some problem. I could compile only upto 136 pages. After that some error message is coming. Probably some style file is old!? Another thing it uses a style sabon.sty. You have to comment it before processing the file, as it uses some proprietory fonts [see the previous postings on Indian TUG for details]. You may need some additional style files - mathrsfs, comment, acronym, multirow, if you are not already having them. (In my system [installed from the TeXLive CD] these files were not installed).

I already posted to Shri CVR about the problem I faced and waiting for a reply.

With best Wishes
