El Capitan OS X and LaTeX

El-Capitan-590x369

El Capitan is a very nice mountain. It’s also the latest OS X version which messes things up with \LaTeX. Be aware of this before you update. I wasn’t!

I quote from a fix explained here:

Under OS X 10.11, El Capitan, writing to “/usr” is no longer allowed, even with Administrator privileges. The usual symbolic link to the active \TeX Distribution, “/usr/texbin”, is therefore removed (if it was there from a previous OS version) and cannot be installed. Many GUI applications have the path to those binaries set to “/usr/texbin” by default and will no longer find the binaries there.

I had to reinstall MacTex, then to update my GUI application (texmaker) for \LaTeX and finally to replace every “/usr/texbin” by “/Library/TeX/texbin”, as shown below.
