I got the following error while compiling a Latex-File:
compiling MyLatexfile.tex... tex/virtualbox.tex:1: Package inputenc Error: Unicode char \u8: not set up for use with LaTeX.
So I checked the encoding of the file and saw that it looked like this:
file tex/virtualbox.tex tex/virtualbox.tex: LaTeX document, UTF-8 Unicode (with BOM) text, with very long lines
It seems that inputenc does not like utf-8 with Byte Order Mark. So I removed it using the following sed-command:
sed -i '1 s/^\xef\xbb\xbf//' virtualbox.tex
