I recently installed TeXShop, and proceeded to write some code and tried to preview it. Unfortunately, I got an error message:
Can't find required tool. /usr/texbin/simpdftex does not exist. Perhaps TeXLive as not installed or was removed during a system upgrade. If so, go to the TeXShop website 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.
I proceeded to install the complete version of TeX Live. After restarting TeXShop, I find that I get the exact same error above. I checked my
/usr/texbin directory and found no such directory! Furthermore, I looked at my preferences and noticed under my path settings were set as follows:
(pdf)TeX: /usr/texbin Distiller (ghostscript): /usr/local/bin
Should I change either of these paths? Should I reinstall TeXShop?
Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
