[TxMt] Re: Block Caret for writers (not only for LaTeX)

Hi guys,

You inspired me to use TextMate for LaTeX, but I quickly stumbled into 
known problems that have been discussed here since 2007 
<http://lists.macromates.com/textmate/2007-April/018773.html>. First I 
needed |kpsewhich|. So I installed the newest lightweight MacTeX from 
tug.org <http://tug.org/mactex>. Now TextMate can |Typeset & View 
(PDF)|**, but not |Watch Document|. The prompt is |Error: Failed to 
compile document|. Screenshot attached.

The most recent guide to using TextMate for LaTeX I can find is from 
and it talks a lot about “things to come”. Is there anything newer? E.g. 
for TextMate 2 on Yosemite :-)
