I'm using Texmaker and I get this error "Log file not found" when I am running LatexPDF. Can you please help me to solve this problem.
This error can occur if you have no TEX engine installed. Because TexMaker is only a editor and can therefor not compile tex code without a Tex distro installed previously.
If you are working on windows, make sure to install either TexLive or MikTex. http://www.tug.org/texlive/
For Mac there is MacTex. http://tug.org/mactex/
Hope this helps
I encountered the same problem in Linux OS, and I run the command line to compile the .tex file first to generate a .log file in the directory. Then it can be compiled by Texmaker without errors.
Also this error occurs when you give a name with symbols like ! %&$# etc... make sure you didn't gave a name with symbols an try.
