Since this afternoon, after the command

pdflatex test.tex 

latex says

This is pdfTeX, Version 3.14159265-2.6-1.40.18 (TeX Live 2017/Arch Linux) (preloaded format=pdflatex)
 restricted \write18 enabled.
entering extended mode
! I can't find file `test.tex'.
<*> test.tex

(Press Enter to retry, or Control-D to exit)
Please type another input file name: 
! Emergency stop.
<*> test.tex

!  ==> Fatal error occurred, no output PDF file produced!
Transcript written on texput.log.

texput.log contains:

This is pdfTeX, Version 3.14159265-2.6-1.40.18 (TeX Live 2017/Arch Linux) (preloaded format=latex 2018.6.6)  6 JUN 2018 16:04

End of file on the terminal!

Here is how much of TeX's memory you used:
 3 strings out of 492983
 132 string characters out of 6138606
 54248 words of memory out of 5000000
 3671 multiletter control sequences out of 15000+600000
 3640 words of font info for 14 fonts, out of 8000000 for 9000
 1141 hyphenation exceptions out of 8191
 0i,0n,0p,1b,6s stack positions out of 5000i,500n,10000p,200000b,80000s
No pages of output.

I tried:

  • this solution;

  • several input files at different directories;

  • full uninstall/reinstall of texlive.

Nothing works...

I'am using Antergos (a derivative of Arch).

  • Can you find texput.log? Is it in the folder of test.tex? – Ulrike Fischer Jun 6 '18 at 14:24

    what does echo $TEXINPUTS say ? – David Carlisle Jun 6 '18 at 14:25
  • @DavidCarlisle echo $TEXINPUTS says /home/patrick/LaTeX/mesmacros. I need this directory for a personal package. – Patrick Augeau Jun 6 '18 at 14:30
  • @UlrikeFischer I completed my post. – Patrick Augeau Jun 6 '18 at 14:37

    @PatrickAugeau as I suspected:-) You have told tex only to look there and not in the current directory,, it should work with the trailing :. though, or .:/home/patrick/LaTeX/mesmacros/: to be really sure that . is at the front. – David Carlisle Jun 6 '18 at 15:38
