  • Hi, I have downloaded miktek for mac as I was told that was needed for using
    texstudio. I have since extracted both files and they are now applications on
    my mac.

    Since then everytime I have tried to create a file in texstudio the following
    appears 'Could not start latex'

    I am assuming that texstudio was not able to located miktex in my mac and what
    can i do to fix this error?

    Any help would be great! thanks!

     
  • i am a little confused, as there is not "miktex" for mac, there is however
    mactex ...
    anyway, open a terminal and type in "latex" plus return and check the output.
    Does it find the command ?

     
  • ahhh yes sorry about that, my pc has miktex and mac is mactex. i am very new
    to the world of tex.

    what do you mean by open a terminal and type in 'latex'?

    thanks!
