I have updated my OS X to Mountain Lion, and am experiencing a problem. I have on my system two installations of TeX, namely MacTeX and TeXLive from macports. I am using only the first one, and the second one was installed as some dependency and I never bother to remove it.

Anyway, after the update, my system tries to use the macport's installation. How can I change it? How can one change the default installation of TeX, assuming that there is more then one?

Have you tried running FixMacTeX2012.pkg located in /Applications/TeX? –  Silex Oct 29 '12 at 16:33
    
MacTeX installs it in /Applications/TeX: the TeX folder in Applications. If you don't have it you should reinstall MacTeX. –  Silex Oct 29 '12 at 16:37
    
I found it, and ran it - it didn't help. Still when calling pdfLaTeX it executes the one from Macports. –  Dror Oct 29 '12 at 16:38
    
What is the output when you execute which pdflatex in terminal? –  Silex Oct 29 '12 at 16:39

Sorry... I forgot to restart the bash. Seems to work just fine. Would be nice if you turn this into an answer :) THANKS! –  Dror Oct 29 '12 at 16:41

Problems with MacTeX 2012 and/or upgrading can be fixed by running FixMacTeX2012.pkg which is located in /Applications/TeX: the TeX folder in Applications.

If this doesn't work a reinstall is in order, be sure to verify your download.
