# Glossary with TexMaker

I'm trying to create a glossary using TexMaker on Mac OS X. TexMaker does not provide an entry called 'makeglossary' or the like in Preferences > Quick Build > Wizard. My build settings in the Wizard are as follows:

PdfLaTeX Bibtex PdfLaTeX PdfLaTeX Pdf Viewer

I have tried to add the make glossary function manually by adding 'makeglossaries %.tex' after the Bibtex command in the user syntax, i.e.

"/usr/texbin/pdflatex" -synctex=1 -interaction=nonstopmode %.tex|"/usr/texbin/bibtex" %.aux| makeglossaries %.tex | "/usr/texbin/pdflatex" -synctex=1 -interaction=nonstopmode %.tex|"/usr/texbin/pdflatex" -synctex=1 -interaction=nonstopmode %.tex|open %.pdf


However, when I try to compile my file, I get an error message saying

Error : could not start the command : makeglossaries "filename".tex

Here is my MWE as well as the contents of my gloss.tex and bib.bib file:

MWE:

\documentclass[a4paper,11pt,oneside,fleqn]{scrbook}
\usepackage[ngerman,english]{babel} % language listed last is default setting
\usepackage[utf8x]{inputenc}

\usepackage{hyperref}

\usepackage[acronym,toc]{glossaries}
\makeglossaries

\usepackage[square,numbers]{natbib}

\begin{document}

\frontmatter

\tableofcontents

\clearpage
\printglossary[type=\acronymtype]
\printglossary

\mainmatter

\gls{a} \gls{b}

\backmatter

\bibliography{bib}
\bibliographystyle{plainnat}
\nocite{*}

\end{document}


gloss.tex file:

\newglossaryentry{a}
{
name=A,
description={text}
}

\newacronym{b}{B}{text}


bib.bib file:

%bib.bib
@book{Robinson2011,
author = {Matthew Robinson},
title = {Symmetry and the Standard Model - Mathematics and Particle Physics},
publisher = {Springer},
year = {2011},
}

• Welcome to TeX.SX! You can have a look at our starter guide to familiarize yourself further with our format. – texenthusiast Jan 28 '15 at 2:33
• I tried that, now I'm getting an error saying: Error : could not start the command : make glossaries "filename" – Sebastian_92 Jan 28 '15 at 2:50
• I have also tried the approach suggested in the link you provided, but I still get the same error message. Is there a specific order if I would like to use Bibtex, Makeindex and makeglossaries simultaneously? – Sebastian_92 Jan 28 '15 at 3:04
• may be try "/usr/texbin/makeglossaries" % . this type of automation of compiling bibtex makeglossaries etc.. can be done using arara and latexmk tex.stackexchange.com/questions/64/… – texenthusiast Jan 28 '15 at 3:05
