Hi Niels,

The PATH as set in a terminal window is not the PATH that TextMate sees. You
can see what PATH is available in TextMate by entering

  printenv PATH

and then (with the cursor on that line) hitting control-R. I imagine that
you'll find "/usr/texbin" is *not* in the resulting list, so you need to get
it in there. Section 8.2 of the TextMate manual covers how to do this...


Good luck,
