I am having trouble typesetting with TeXShop (using the latest 2015 version for Mac) in OS X El Capitan.

When I try I get the following error message:

Library/TeX/texbin /Library/TeX/texbin /Library/TeX/texbin /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 have read many posts related to the same problem but non has helped me so far. I tried reinstalling, I made sure the correct path /Library/TeX/texbin was input in the preferences, I even tried to replace it with /usr/local/texlive/2015/bin/x86_64-darwin (where the texbin link leads to from /Library/TeX and where I can see the pdflatex file is). None of this was successful. For instance if I try with the other directory I get:

/usr/local/texlive/2015/bin/x86_64-darwin /Library/TeX/texbin /Library/TeX/texbin /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.

Anyone can help me please?

I encountered same problem, and reinstalled Texlive, then everything goes fine.

  • I updated TexLive and reinstalled the pdftex files using it, now it works! Thank you very much!! – Paolo Pichini Jan 9 '16 at 14:47
