Atom.io package pandoc convert requires pdflatex for converting to pdf

Posted by jpluimers on 2018/02/20

It’s a bit hard to copy the error messages that only last a second or so, but I finally managed to:

File 0Project 0No Issues20170204.rst1:1
LF19 L | 168 W | 2329 CUTF-8reStructuredTextmaster1
[pandoc-convert]
Command failed: /usr/local/bin/pandoc --standalone --to=latex --output=/Users/jeroenp/20170204.rst.pdf /Users/jeroenp/20170204.rst pandoc: pdflatex not found. pdflatex is needed for pdf output.

In order to have pdflatex on my Mac OS X installation, I had to do this:

brew install Caskroom/cask/mactex

This will install pdflatex as

/Library/TeX/texbin/pdflatex
