pdflatex is installed (via Macports)

Will@Wills-MacBook-Air.local ~/...kubanek-l-iA-Writer-Export-0165467> which pdflatex

Will@Wills-MacBook-Air.local ~/...kubanek-l-iA-Writer-Export-0165467> pdflatex

This is pdfTeX, Version 3.1415926-2.3-1.40.12 (TeX Live 2011/MacPorts 2011_5)
restricted \write18 enabled.

So have then symlinked into /usr/textbin as prompted by the service menu error. After restarting iAWriter it's still reporting it as unfound?

Will@Wills-MacBook-Air.local ~/...kubanek-l-iA-Writer-Export-0165467> ls -la /usr/textbin/
total 8
drwxr-xr-x 3 root wheel 102 Jul 10 21:18 .
drwxr-xr-x@ 16 root wheel 544 Jul 10 21:18 ..
lrwxr-xr-x 1 root wheel 23 Jul 10 21:18 pdflatex -> /opt/local/bin/pdflatex

Any advice?

I'll add the path /opt/local/bin/pdflatex to the script in the next release. But I can't promise you when it will be.


OK, I have already done it. Please try it out and in the case when it doesn't work, reopen this issue and describe the problem.
