Like others have noted, after upgrading to El Capitan, there was a required reconfiguration for
MacTeX. I completed the fix specified here: https://tug.org/mactex/UpdatingForElCapitan.pdf. So, I changed the Path settings for (pdf)TeX from
TeXShop preferences, and I changed
/Library/TeX/ texbin/xelatex, in
However, if I try to compile a document, I still get the following error report:
/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
I’m now not sure if I should really re-install, or am I missing some bit of the fix.
I also tried going to terminal and doing
which pdftex, but it returned nothing. Reinstall?
