Hi everyone,

Not sure if this is the right list, but it seems like a Mac related problem
(version OS X 10.9.5, haven't upgraded to Yosemite just yet).

I'm getting a warning when building a package (with R 3.1.3), relating to
LaTeX and Rd problems:

* checking PDF version of manual ... WARNING
LaTeX errors when creating PDF version.
This typically indicates Rd problems.
* checking PDF version of manual without hyperrefs or index ... OK

The final .pdf file looks alright, so it gets created after all despite

a post referring to a missing "inconsolata.sty" but doesn't seem to be my

I also tried R CMD Rd2pdf (in the command line), and I get this at the end:

Error in texi2dvi(file = file, pdf = TRUE, clean = clean, quiet = quiet,  :
  Running 'texi2dvi' on 'Rd2.tex' failed.
sh: /usr/local/bin/texi2dvi: No such file or directory

It might boil down to this missing texi2dvi, but I have the full
MacTeX-2014 (fresh reinstall today) on my system and it should be there.

Might also be a path issue: here's is the difference between R.gui and

> Sys.getenv("PATH")
[1] "/usr/bin:/bin:/usr/sbin:/sbin:/usr/local/bin:/usr/texbin"

Adrians-MBP:~ dusadrian$ $PATH
No such file or directory

Thanks very much for any hint, below my R version.
