I downloaded MacTex.pkg, installed texshop, but I get the following error:
/Library/TeX/texbin/pdflatex does not exist. TeXShop is a front end for TeX, but you also need a TeX distribution. Perhaps such a distribution was not installed or was removed during a system upgrade. If so, go to http://tug.org/MacTeX and follow the instructions to (re)install MacTeX. A less likely possibility is that a tool path is incorrectly configured in TeXShop preferences. This can happen if you are using the macports or fink distributions.
PLEASE help. I am very new to both Mac and LaTeX so if someone could "hold my hand" so to speak, that would be really great.
tex --versionin it. What happens?
/Library/TeX/texbinfor MacTeX 2015, and
/usr/texbinfor MacTeX 2014 and earlier. If
tex --versionis not found, your
PATHenvironment variable in the Terminal is incorrect. tex.stackexchange.com/questions/29744/… may help with that.
