I have recently installed MacTeX.pkg (http://tug.org/mactex/) as well as Texmaker. I have this famous "Log file not found" problem, and I'm still stuck with it even thought I have already checked many other questions that were previously asked...

Could someone help me?

Thanks!

Welcome to TeX.SX! Do you have the same problem as in the question @barbarabeeton linked, i.e., TeXShop works, but TeXMaker not? –  mafp Jun 4 '13 at 21:34

Does pdflatex sample2e from terminal generate a sample2e.pdf ? May be you need to configure TeXmaker to the texbin How to configure Texmaker to work on Mac with MacTeX?. Are you using latest right version of TeXmaker for Mac and save file as filename.tex with extension. –  texenthusiast Jun 4 '13 at 23:40

Texmaker is pre-configurated to work with mactex : there is nothing to change to the settings (if mactex is installed correctly, of course). To reset the settings : "Options" -> "Settings file" -> "reset settings". And a new document must be saved with a .tex extension (without spaces or special characters in the name) before being compiled (if the message "log file not found" is displayed, it means that the compilation has failed). As you seem to be french, take a look here : installation de MacTex2012 et Texmaker –  user27168 Jun 5 '13 at 5:05
    
Thanks user27168. After I reset the settings (Options" -> "Settings file" -> "reset settings) everything works perfectly. But I don't know what changed in my settings. Thanks –  guillaume boury Jun 5 '13 at 9:43
