I recently updated my tex distribution on mac to try and get use of a font in texlive-extra (I used macports). However, this didn't work and led to errors. As a result I decided to do a clean install following the instructions here: http://www.tug.org/mactex/uninstalling.html moving usr/local/texlive and usr/local/texmf to trash, along with the GUI applications.
When I did a clean install from mactex here: http://www.tug.org/mactex/index.html all seemed to go fine, but when I try and compile using a makefile that was fine before I get the result:
LaTeX Error: File `book.cls' not found.
(same for articles, reports, etc.)
If I run macports with
sudo port install texlive texlive-latex-extra
I get the result:
---> Computing dependencies for texlive ---> Cleaning texlive ---> Computing dependencies for texlive-latex-extra ---> Cleaning texlive-latex-extra ---> Scanning binaries for linking errors ---> No broken files found.
And nothing happens.
If someone could help me out with fixing this, or the correct way to do a clean install I would be grateful.
I came across a similar issue here: article.cls not found after last update but it was closed without a clear answer.
