Update:

I was able to track it down myself. I was missing the Everyshi package, included in the ms package (CTAN: directory: /tex-archive/macros/latex/contrib/ms). Now I can use the CVS version and not get "GUI framework cannot be initialized".

The working code looks like this:

I have been trying to fix this for many hours now and I cannot find any working solution. So if anyone can help, please do so.Code:\begin{tikzpicture} [scale=1.5,line cap=round, % Styles axes/.style={thick}, information text/.style={rounded corners,inner sep=1ex}] \usetikzlibrary{arrows,calc,intersections} % The graphic \draw[help lines,step=0.5cm] (-1.4,-1.4) grid (1.4,1.4); \draw[name path=unitcircle] (0,0) circle(1cm); \begin{scope}[axes] \draw[->] (-1.5,0) -- (1.5,0) node[right] {$x$} coordinate(x axis); \draw[->] (0,-1.5) -- (0,1.5) node[above] {$y$} coordinate(y axis); \foreach \x/\xtext in {-1, -.5/-\frac{1}{2}, .5/\frac{1}{2}, 1} \draw[xshift=\x cm] (0pt,1pt) -- (0pt,-1pt) node[below,fill=white,inner sep=0.2ex] {\tiny $\xtext$}; \foreach \y/\ytext in {-1, -.5/-\frac{1}{2}, .5/\frac{1}{2}, 1} \draw[yshift=\y cm] (1pt,0pt) -- (-1pt,0pt) node[left,fill=white,inner sep=0.2ex] {\tiny $\ytext$}; \end{scope} \foreach \t/\ttext in {-1,-0.5,...,1} { \path[name path=myline] (1,0) -- (0,\t) node[sloped, near end, above=-2pt] {\tiny \color{blue}$\scriptscriptstyle -t = \ttext$} -- (-1,2*\t); \path [name intersections={of=unitcircle and myline, by={C, C'}}]; \draw [name path=C--C',red] (C) -- (C'); \fill [red, name intersections={of=unitcircle and myline}] (intersection-1) circle (0.3mm) (intersection-2) circle (0.3mm); } \draw[yshift=-1.7cm] node[below,text width=2cm,information text] {Figure 1.1}; \end{tikzpicture}

What I want to do is to find the intersection point (and add a dot/circle) between the line generated with this (see full TikZ code below):

and a unit circle generated withCode:\foreach \t/\ttext in {-1,-0.5,...,1} { \draw (1,0) -- (0,\t) node[sloped, near end, above] {\tiny $-t = \ttext$} -- (-1, 2*\t); }

orCode:\draw (0,0) circle (1cm);

I have tried several approaches but nothing seems to work. Tries include this "solution":Code:\node (c1) at (0,0) [draw,circle,scale=9] {};

Nabble - pgf-users - Intersection Line/Circle

Nabble - pgf-users - Intersection Line/Circle (2)

but it just generates errors of "Undefined control sequence. <recently read> \pgfsetpath" and various tries have easily reached 100+ errors.

I'm using the latest CVS build of TikZ/PGF but slightly mixed with the 2.00 final build. The mixing is because I got "GUI framework cannot be initialized" at the file "pgfutil-latex.def" with just pure CVS. Perhaps it is causing problem, but if so, help to install it correctly is appreichiated.

I also use TeXnicCenter 1.0 rc, as the working enviroment together with MiKTeX 2.8 basic. And I have tried to set install packages on the fly to Yes, but with no success.

By the way: I know the intersection points are given by:

but it seems like I cannot use these expressions as coordinates (using \t instead of t) because it seems like the dividing is causing trouble.
