Hello, I'm having trouble getting the numbering
on the front pages to be roman numerals.
Here's the text:

\documentclass[11pt,oneside,a4paper]{book}
\usepackage{draftwatermark}
\usepackage{indentfirst}
\begin{document}
\frontmatter
\pagenumbering{roman}
\title{The tale of two obscurities}
\author{David Niklas}
\date{04/22/2015}
\maketitle

Here's the version of latex:

pdfTeX 3.1415926-2.4-1.40.13 (TeX Live 2012)
kpathsea version 6.1.0
Compiled with libpng 1.6.16; using libpng 1.6.16
Compiled with zlib 1.2.8; using zlib 1.2.8
Compiled with poppler version 0.32.0

I'm running Funtoo linux.
If you could also tell me how to make a copyright
it would save me another post (the current method
I had to comment out because it did not work).
There are some guides on my computer from various
latex packages that do have roman numerals in them,
though I can't be certain that they were not pregenerated.

Thanks
