I believe I may have identified the problem that I was having the other day.
TextMate checks for synctex using texmate.py, which asks if the DEFAULT
pdflatex engine knows about synctex. Even though I had changed TextMate's
PATH variable to include /usr/texbin before the Fink version that I had
before, my personal PATH variable still pointed to the Fink version. After I
put /usr/texbin version ahead of it in .profile, it works fine.
Strangely, despite the system wide TeX distribution being set to TeXLive in
system preferences, pdflatex from the command line still uses the Fink

I got this error a few weeks ago. This is how I would troubleshoot the
problem (my issue was a little complicated).
1) Make sure you don't have it turned off in the LaTeX package
2) Make sure you are using the latexmake.pl script.
3) Repair permissions on your hard disk. I found out later that my
permissions on my installation directory were munged and that's why I
couldn't run pdflatex from Terminal.
4) Make sure your TeX Live installation is showing up in the "TeX
Distribution" preference pane.
5) Make sure you own the directory you are working in.
6) Check permissions on the LaTeX path directory.
7) Check group/ownership of the LaTeX path directory.
Hope something in there helps.

Having just switched to TeX Live 2009, I'm experiencing a problem with
synctex. Jumping from Skim to my LaTeX works fine, but "Jump to Current
in Viewer" throws me the message
<div id="commandOutput"><div id="preText">
pdfsync.sty must be included to use this command
or use a typesetter that supports synctex (such as TexLive 2008)
but then jumps to the correct line when I next typeset. On my laptop at
home, where I've only ever used TeX Live 2009, things are working as they
I suspect the answer is simple, but having fiddled around for some time,
was unable to fix it. Does anyone have any thoughts?
