I was following this tutorial to install BasicTex. Running latex command immediately returns without any warning or error. My environment variables are:

$ echo $PATH
$ which latex

How should I troubleshoot it further?

  • @PeterJansson, thanks. Are you implying that this question is off topic or incomplete? – Kimi Apr 22 '13 at 20:39

  • @Kimi Peter's was just a welcome. I never recommend installing BasicTeX, which lacks too many useful packages. What's the output of latex -version? – egreg Apr 22 '13 at 20:42

    @Kimi Hunting through the list of packages is usually painful. Install the complete MacTeX and live happy. ;-) – egreg Apr 22 '13 at 21:00
