Hi LaTeX users,
I'm working some more on the Typeset and View command, we are going to replace the default command that currently ships with TextMate. But I need some information. What process are TextMate's LaTeX users following for building their documents? I'm sure most of you are using bibtex, but what about other things like makeindex? Has everyone moved to a pure pdf-based process, or are some of you still using dvi/postscript? What are you using for pictures? Anything you can tell me will help.
I would also *love* example documents along with the expected output. This will aid in testing, and ensure that your particular process will be supported!
I had the same problem as described in a post from Sebastian on
Here is my error output:
Running bibtex on Exjobb (ny).tex
Traceback (most recent call last): File "/Users/peeter/Peeterprogram/
texMate.py", line 457, in texStatus, isFatal, numErrs, numWarns =
run_bibtex(texfile=fileName) File "/Users/peeter/Peeterprogram/
texMate.py", line 71, in run_bibtex return stat,fatal,err,warn
UnboundLocalError: local variable 'stat' referenced before assignment
It seems that it had to do with the parentheses in my filename messing
up the regexes.
My solution was to change lines 71 and 72 in Textmate.app/Contents/
SharedSupport/Bundles/Latex.tmbundle/Support/bin/texMate.py as follows:
# auxfiles = [f for f in os.listdir('.') if re.search('.aux
$',f) > 0]
# auxfiles = [f for f in auxfiles if re.match(r'('+ basename +
auxfiles = [f for f in os.listdir('.') if re.search('.aux$',f)
> 0 and (f.startswith(basename) or re.match(r'bu\d+\.aux', f))]
This works, at least for me.
Or have I messed something else up in the process?
I work on several open-source projects (VTK, ParaView, CMake...) that
follow a somewhat unusual indentation style. Instead of
Getting the first curly indent right was trivial but I can't figure
out how to reduce the indentation _after_ the closing curly. When the
pattern matches decreaseIndentPattern, the current line's indentation
is reduced. What I need is for the following line to be unindented. Is
there any way to do this?
I am pretty sure I just pinned this down to TM. If I work in TM,
save, then command-tab to a browser, there is significant lag from the
time it will switch to the browser, or, at times, even bring up the
application tab switcher.
If I do not save, the toggle is fast, so it seems to be something to
do with leaving TM, where it is not letting me leave as fast as other
I have tried toggling back and forth between other apps, and the
behavior is speedy. Any idea what is going on, and how to solve it?
These are simple files, single files, that have a hundred lines or so
in them, nothing complicated at all.

Having trouble running the "new" TextMate bundle with a LaTeX file that worked via the old (or current, stable) bundle and (now) works on the command line. Here's a bit of the log:

My document uses XeLaTex and has this as its first line:
> %!TEX TS-program = xelatex
So I imagine my problem is that XeLaTeX isn't getting run.
My default engine in Preferences is "xelatex" so, being a noobie, I'm not sure what else to do to tell the bundle my desires.
Any help greatly appreciated!
Hi everyone -
I'm having a weird problem with LaTeX/BibTeX cite key autocompletion.
My bib file is in the appropriate place in the user texmf tree, and
BibTeX finds it when I compile the document... but cite key
autocompletion does not work ("bib file not found" or something like
that). Cite key autocompletion DOES work if I put the same bib file
in the same directory as the TeX file itself.
Thoughts? Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Best, Chris MacMinn
Is the latest (cutting edge) version of textmate intended to run on a
PPC? After updating it today, textmate gives me a "You cannot open the
application "TextMate" because it is not supported on this
architecture" message on my PowerPC G5 (3.1) when I try to open it.
I recently started using TM again to work on a Rails project and upgraded
form 1.5.7 to 1.5.9 (1510) on 10.6.4. Now the program is crashing several
times a day. I am working with projects and git scm enabled. Other than that
nothing special or unusual.
I saw a post here talking about a later version than 1510 but I can't seem
to find out how to download that or any other version than the this one. I
am currently running 1.5.7 and that seems to be stable if out of date.
I am not sure what is triggering the problem. It may be related to selecting
files from from the project drawer but I'm not certain and it only started
happening after upgrading to 1.5.9. This was initially happening on 10.5 so
I finally upgraded to 10.6.4 in hopes that it would fix it but it is still
Any tips or assistance will be appreciated. This is the only editor that has
gotten me away from emacs. ;-)

Hi, I'm having trouble getting some of the more complex Git bundle tools to
work. For example, when I try to merge, it does
I suspect my problem is with my ruby version, I'm on OSX 10.5.6, and using
rvm to manage my ruby version, with the shell variable TM_RUBY set (this has
resolved all of my previous issues with rvm and textmate)
I followed the Git.tmbundle installation instructions at
http://github.com/jcf/git-tmbundle, installing it in ~/Library/Application\
I followed these instructions
http://gnuu.org/2009/05/25/getting-gittmbundle-working-with-ruby19/ but the
svn repo had moved, so instead I did
$ svn co http://svn.textmate.org/trunk/Support/
My TM_GIT is set correctly, and simpler commands like Browse Annotated File
Any help/suggestions would be appreciated.

Dear TextMate users,
I work with textmate 1.5.8 (1505) under Mac OS X 10.6.2. I installed the latest version of latexmk (version 4.11) and tested it in the terminal, works like a charm. I then tried to compile a .tex document with latexmk via TextMate. If I click the button "Show Latexmk.pl Messages" I can see which version of latexmk is used. It turns out that some old version is used (version 3.21j of 2 December 2007). After that I changed the variable "TM_LATEX_COMPILER" explicitly from "latexmk.pl" to "/usr/local/texlive/2009/texmf-dist/scripts/latexmk/latexmk.pl" --- still the old version is used. I have no idea where this old version is located and how I can force TextMate to use the new one. The new one is correctly installed, I can use "latexmk foo.tex" from everywhere on my system.
How can I tell TextMate to use the correct version of latexmk?
