No that's the same thing. It's difficult for me to debug this since
you're using such an old version of OSX and R. Chances are poppler
simply doesn't work on such an old system.

But one thing you could try is manually installing the mavericks
binary package. Download this file to your system:


And then install it in R using:

  install.packages('~/Downloads/pdftools_1.0.tgz', repos = NULL)

If you're lucky it works :)
