[Tex/LaTex] Error: PDF File not found after compiling


I'm using TeXmaker on a Mac. I created my .tex file. I compiled it and the editor tells me that the .log file is created and the PDF file is written.
Then, when I click on view PDF, it gives me the error message file not found.

How can I fix this problem? The problem wasn't occurring in Ubuntu, same .tex file and settings.

Any help would be appreciated.

Best Answer

check the filename and directory, maybe Texmaker struggles to work with some characters in the filepath. Try out the internal viewer and some external viewer. -> Preferences

& Check if the .pdf has been written and try to open that file with the Mac pdf viewer

You should also set pdflatex to run when compiling, not pdftex.
