I have read the many posts on this topic already, but I have had zero success with all of the solutions. Just purchased a macbook (OSX 10.8.2) and used the
mactex package to run the standard install.
TeXShop opens up, but when I try to typeset a document, I get the error message :
"/usr/texbin/pdflatex does not exist. Perhaps TeXLive was not installed or was removed during a system upgrade. If so, go to the TeXShop web site and follow the instructions to (re)install TeXLive."
I'm going to re-download and re-install
mactex, but I don't see how that will help. I'm totally new at all of this stuff, so go easy.
