This question already has an answer here:
After installing OS 10.9.2 on my computer I can no longer use LaTeX. Every time I try to typeset a document I get an error message:
The program 'pdftex' was not found. Searched in directories: /usr/bin, /bin, /usr/sbin, /sbin, /usr/local/bin. Check configuration of the pdfTex tool and path settings in the Preferences dialog.
I have seen an answer to this question. The problem is it involves going into the guts of LaTeX. Alas, while I love LaTeX I'm not tech savvy. Therefore I'm more than a little worried about tinkering with the program and losing access to many valuable documents.
Can someone provide a step by step answer for solving this problem. The current answer says to go to:
I have easily found the
Library/Tex/Distributions folder. There are 7 files within it... What do I do next.
Thanks in advance.
