TeXShop is a Tex previewer for Mac OS X. For more information, click on
The link below downloads a "LocalTeX" preference pane. This pane is a complement to the
"TeX Dist" preference pane installed by MacTeX, which allows a user to select the active TeX distribution.
The local pane allows individual users to override the choice made for all users by the TeX Dist
pane, and to select distributions installed on a thumb drive, external hard disk, or home directory.
It does not modify any data used by the TeX Dist pane and works on Mountain Lion and above,
including Yosemite. The download includes the LocalTeX pane, documentation, and full source code.
Ghostscript 9.16 was
released on March 19, 2015. Below is an install package for Ghostscript 9.16. The package will work on Leopard and above, for Intel or PPC. In case it causes trouble, install a previous version; several are available below. Testing is useful since Ghostscript 9.16 will be used
in MacTeX-2015 when it is released later this year.
Ghostscript 9.15 was
released on September 22, 2014. Below is an install package for Ghostscript 9.15. The package will work on Leopard and above, for Intel or PPC. In case it causes trouble, install the previous version.
Ghostscript 9.15 fixes the bugs in 9.14 which caused us to use
Ghostscript 9.10 in MacTeX 2014.
Below is an install package for Ghostscript 9.10. This package is part of MacTeX-2014.
Below is an install package for Ghostscript 9.07. This package is part of MacTeX-2013.
Here is a paper about making a small TeX distribution for Mac OS X. The distribution, BasicTeX,
is available at tug.org/mactex/morepackages.
WARNING: The second line below leads to a test version of BasicTeX-2015. The xetex
binary in this distribution is broken. It appears to typeset correctly, but omits
random glyphs. We are waiting for a fix.
