I installed TexLive and Texmaker. When I want to build the tex document I receive the "Log not found!" error. Here is a screenshot of the Texmaker settings:

I also used "PDFlatex + view PDF" in the quick build command section, but it didn't work. When I use the editor of the TexLive itself, it works. But, it does not work with Texmaker.

Do the answers here: tex.stackexchange.com/q/66763/32374 or tex.stackexchange.com/q/63999/32374 help? –  darthbith May 17 '14 at 21:27
@darthbith. Those solutions are not the ones I need. I have installed TexLive. In those answers the solution in installing one, which is irrelevant to this case. –  yashar May 17 '14 at 21:33
There are many answers to those questions, at least one of which explicitly states that "if you have already installed the TeX distribution, try this..." –  darthbith May 17 '14 at 21:34
Indeed, at least one answer is precisely concerned with the error you are getting. (Although I'm not very convinced the solution is a good one.) –  cfr May 17 '14 at 21:42
Where is the TeX document you are trying to compile exactly? –  cfr May 17 '14 at 23:55
