New laptop, and attempting to set up TeXShop . I downloaded MacTeX, and attempted to install (using install-tl), but Terminal said I did not have permission. Found instructions to enable root user, placed the MacTeX in a Shared folder, logged in as root user and ran install-tl. Install seemed successful, but when I log back into my user account, pdfLaTeX does not run. Following message comes up:
/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. Another possibility is that a tool path is incorrectly configured in TeXShop preferences. This can happen if you are using the fink teTeX distribution.
Not sure what I'm doing wrong, and likely something silly. Any help would be appreciated!
