I am having a nightmare with compiling citations using Texmaker. As part of this I was changing directories and somehow ended up with no directory. I have attempted uninstalling Texmaker and the MacTex as well as removing the program preferences but this hasn't worked. I know you can browse to the Bibtex file but I have no idea where it could be. Can anyone help me get back to some semblance of usage?

Missing directory in texmaker

Thank you in advance.

    It should be enough to enter "bibtex" %.aux or "biber" % in the empty field (assuming it is in your path) Apr 11 '18 at 13:22
  • Mandatory link to tex.stackexchange.com/q/154751/35864.

  • Yes, whilst that link was useful, you'll also see it contains the full path. That it could be done without the full path is what I didn't know and what these replies have helped me with.

If your environment variables are set to include the location of bibtex and/or biber you don't need to worry about the full path, just fill

"bibtex" %.aux


"biber" %

into the empty field.
