I have a problem very much like TeXShop gives "(null) does not exist" error when compiling postscript
- Mac: 10.8.2
- TeXShop version: 3.11
When I try to compile
.tex into a Post Script file, TeXShop gives me an error as follows:
(null) 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.
I can compile PDFs fine though. Though I have never compiled to PS before, so not sure if this problem is new either. Found a post suggesting I delete the preference file, but that doesn't work.
I have followed:
- Open the TeXShop preferences and click on the Engine tab,
- and then in the part that says
"TeX + dvips + distiller"click on the two default buttons (one for TeX and one for LaTeX).
- Then try again. I still get the error.
How to fix this and get a ps-file?
