I am trying to use the moderncv package for making my resume. I will admit, I have never played around with latex, so that is what is causing the problems maybe.

I get this error when trying I run:

pdflatex file.tex:

\@extrainfo ->\ComputerMouse {\weblink 

What I am doing wrong in this? Here is the line from the tex file:


Any suggestions on how to fix this? Cause it used to work earlier on my Ubuntu 10.04 but now on 10.10 it doesn't work...

There's no \weblink command. Try \url instead. (You'll need to add \usepackage{url} or \usepackage{hyperref} to the preamble of your document to get the \url command.)
