Re: Preview stops working after TeX Live 2013 upgrade

 * Skriv a reas Nigel Stanger ([hidden email]):     |>  The preview in BibDesk has completely stopped working for me, complaining that it can’t find article.cls (which is is of course rather fundamental!). I recently upgraded to TeX Live 2013 (MacPorts), and I’m assuming that’s somehow caused the problem, as the preview certainly worked the last time I tried under TeX Live 2012 (although that was a while ago). I haven’t tried switching back to 2012 as that’s not just a matter of swapping the packages (see below).   |>     Just one suggestion. I use TeXlive 2013 (MacTeX, however). In Bibdesk preferences, my full path to pdflatex is: /usr/texbin/xelatex. I wonder if your bibdesk path points to your MacPorts installation.  --Gildas ------------------------------------------------------------------------------ Sponsored by Intel(R) XDK Develop, test and display web and hybrid apps with a single code base.

I should also have mentioned that TeX Live seems to work just fine otherwise, which is what makes the BibDesk failure so peculiar. I had some brief hope a few minutes ago when a texlive-bin update arrived through MacPorts, but no change :(. -- Nigel Stanger,                      mailto:[hidden email] Dept. of Information Science,     http://divcom.otago.ac.nz/infosci/University of Otago, Dunedin, NEW ZEALAND.       XNS: =Nigel Stanger ------------------------------------------------------------------------------ Sponsored by Intel(R) XDK Develop, test and display web and hybrid apps with a single code base.

Re: Preview stops working after TeX Live 2013 upgrade

 In reply to this post by Nigel Stanger Aha! I figured it out. I’d forgotten that OS X changed the way environment variables are set globally for GUI apps. In 10.7 you used ~/.MacOSX/environment.plist, but in 10.8 onwards you use /etc/launchd.conf. Of course, I edited the wrong one, which had no effect on BibDesk, but everything still worked at the command line because that uses a different initialisation mechanism. I fixed the TEXMF* variables in launchd.conf, rebooted, and now everything is working again. Thanks for the help! -- Nigel Stanger,                      mailto:[hidden email] Dept. of Information Science,     http://divcom.otago.ac.nz/infosci/University of Otago, Dunedin, NEW ZEALAND.       XNS: =Nigel Stanger ------------------------------------------------------------------------------ Sponsored by Intel(R) XDK Develop, test and display web and hybrid apps with a single code base.

 On Thu Dec 05 2013 11:54:46, Adam R. Maxwell spake thus: > I thought they killed environment.plist in 10.7? Opinion seems to be a bit split on whether it was killed in 10.7, but they certainly at least deprecated it. On my 10.7 machine at home the BibDesk preview works just fine with the environment variables set through environment.plist, who knows? > This is precisely why I added logging of TEX* envvars for the TeX preview last night Nice! > With that in mind, I strongly recommend that users DO NOT SET ENVIRONMENT VARIABLES LIKE THIS! …unless you really know what you’re doing :). I did have good reasons for setting them up this way, but I’m also well aware that I did this and know what to do when there’s a problem. That said, I’m thinking maybe I should change them so that they’re not quite the same as the names in texmf.cnf… Thanks! -- Nigel Stanger,                      mailto:[hidden email] Dept. of Information Science,     http://divcom.otago.ac.nz/infosci/University of Otago, Dunedin, NEW ZEALAND.       XNS: =Nigel Stanger ------------------------------------------------------------------------------ Sponsored by Intel(R) XDK Develop, test and display web and hybrid apps with a single code base.

Same thing I posted a few days ago. We need to see the log from the TeX Preview window (use the previewer in the Windows menu, switch to the Log tab, and copy the output here). ------------------------------------------------------------------------------ Sponsored by Intel(R) XDK Develop, test and display web and hybrid apps with a single code base.
