# OSX Sierra - Pygmentize sometimes not recognized

I've recently decided to switch to minted due to way better Python highlighting. I am having weird issues with minted sometimes not being able to find pygmentize on my Mac - never had the same issues on my windows 10 machine.

Steps I took:

1. Install local Tex Distribution - check
2. Install pygments > pip install pygments - check
3. Check if it's installed > \$pygmentize -h > Usage .../anaconda/bin/pygmentize - check
4. Adapt Tex document > \usepackage[chapter]{minted}
5. Allow TexStudio to shell escape this document > % !TeX TXS-program:compile = txs:///pdflatex/[--shell-escape]> then allow it to really use shell escape for this document
6. Now I am in a weird state - sometimes after starting TexStudio and setting the document I'll get > Package minted Error: You must havepygmentize' installed to use this package. \begin{document}. When restarting TexStudio it works fine.

My document consists of one main document that includes the other chapters. Every chapter defines the tex-root like this: %!TEX root = ../doc.tex. The minimal example I've tried (which works flawlessly on win and sometimes on mac)

\begin{minted}{c}
int main() {
printf("hello, world");
return 0;
}
\end{minted}
`

I am grateful for any ideas you might have :).

• This sounds like a PATH problem within TeXStudio. Try to typeset manually in Terminal. – Herb Schulz Jan 8 '18 at 19:20
• I can only speak for my system after TeXStudio typesetting the document without hiccups again but this works as well - it is kind of a weird issue sometimes. – Faust Jan 9 '18 at 9:05
