I'm new to LaTeX on Linux, relatively new to Linux, in fact. Running
Libranet 2.8.1, with tetex, using gvim as editor. I read the guidance
on ctan.org on how to install new packages, and I installed mla style (I
think I did it properly.)
When I process my text file, containing just one reference to a book
(it's a junk file that I'm just learning on.) The first latex run gets
me an error message, something along the lines of "undefined control
sequence at end of line . . . /protect /author /citeyear. . ."
then I run bibtex from the command line in a terminal window. Then I go
back and run latex twice more.
The result is *almost* what I want. Citation in text reads [Saarni
1999], but the bibliography entry reads something like
"[Saarni1999][Saarni1999] C Saarni, Development (so on and so forth)"
In other words, the cite key is listed, twice, in the bibliography.
