Could not find pdflatex binary at /usr/bin/pdflatex

Reported by: jaydub66@… Owned by: Kamil Kisiel
Priority: normal Component: TracMathPlugin
Severity: normal Keywords:
Cc: Trac Release: 1.0


I want to report two problems:

  1. TracMath 0.6 seems to be triggered by any occurence of "$ ... $" in wiki pages, and not only those marked by "#!latex".
  1. I get red boxes showing "TracMath macro processor has detected an error. Please fix the problem before continuing. Could not find pdflatex binary at /usr/bin/pdflatex". This is clearly bogus since I do have a pdflatex binary at the mentioned location:

$ which pdflatex /usr/bin/pdflatex

$ pdflatex -v pdfTeX 3.1415926-1.40.10-2.2 (TeX Live 2009/Debian) kpathsea version 5.0.0 Copyright 2009 Peter Breitenlohner (eTeX)/Han The Thanh (pdfTeX). There is NO warranty.

The trac log only shows "2013-07-18 22:06:31,551 Trac[tracmath] ERROR: Could not find pdflatex binary at /usr/bin/pdflatex". Is there anything I can do to debug this?

The second point turned out to be a local installation issue in the end, and the first is probably a feature and not a bug ...
