I recently upgraded operating system on macbook to macos Sierra and also installed Mactex2016 but Texmaker is not working. Please help me to configure Texmaker with mactex. I tried this Configure Texmaker with macTex but this did not work.

    Perhaps try uninstalling and reinstalling TeXmaker.

    The expression "Texmaker is not working" is not very specific. What isn't working? Does it fail to start up? Does it start up but then fail to execute a compilation run? Please elaborate.

There are some differences between MacTex2016 and previous versions. For instance, you must configure the path for the executable programs using the /Library/TeX/texbin folder instead of the previous links in /usr/texbin.

Please review the MacTex webpage for this changes: http://www.tug.org/mactex/sierra.html
