[tlaplus] Re: Error Producing PDF Version

Hi Loki,
why I'm wondering:
- "pdflatex" in the preferences does not work, but
- "cd spec.toolbox; pdflatex" does.
Why does Eclpise find my pdflatex in the second case, but not in the first one.
(Not an important question, just being curious.)

It's because Eclipse (on which the Toolbox is based) does not handle inheriting a user's PATH setting well, and so if a user's pdflatex is installed anywhere except for the most basic of places (like "/bin" on a *NIX based OS), pdflatex won't be found (and so the full path to it must be specified.)

that's right, even if I don't understand why.

If you specify a full path to pdflatex, you could be "one and done" as opposed to updating the preferences.

I had the same problem. The toolbox generates a tex-file in the folder spec.toolbox, in your case DieHard.toolbox. But it seems that the pdflatex command is run in the current folder, the parent of DieHard.toolbox.

A work around that worked for me: 
I changed the command in preferences to "cd DieHard.toolbox; pdflatex"

Not quite convenient, because it must be changed for every new spec. But it works for me.

I try to run the PDF producer on the toolbox that I just downloaded, but I get the following error:

TLATeX unrecoverable error: Tring to run command `pdflatex DieHard.tex` produced  the following error- Cannot run program 'pdflatex' in directory /my/dir/DieHard.toolbox.
The system cannot find the file specified.

Is this because of a faulty installation on my part?
I read the other messages from 2013, which makes me wonder if I need to install Latex separately?
