Mac OS: MacTeX (LaTeX Distribution for Mac OS)

There are several LaTeX distributions for Mac OS. MacTeX worked for me out of the box…

  1. Obtain the distribution by downloading the MacTeX.pkg file (2.5GB) and install the package.
  2. Obtain the extras by downloading the file (535MB) and install the package.

That’s it, the pdflatex command and a heap of others are now available 🙂

Note: MacTeX works the “same way” (i.e. out-of-the-box) as the texlive distribution used in Unix/Linux-based or Windows-based operating systems.
