I’m currently trying to compile my first package in RStudio.
I was consistently getting the following warning:
* checking PDF version of manual ... WARNING LaTeX errors when creating PDF version.
I didn’t have a clue what was going on, and I wasn’t having any success following Hadley Wickham’s advice to check my LaTeX logs; I didn’t even know where the logs were.
Thankfully though, a bit of google discovered the problem: as Matt Bannert noted in R 3.1.3 the commands
R CMD Rd2pdf and
R CMD Check expected
texi2dvi to be in
/usr/bin/local/, even though it was actually in
To fix it, I followed Matt’s suggestion:
# to check whether the same issue exists for you which texi2dvi # if so cd /usr/local/bin ln -s /usr/bin/texi2dvi
Worked like a charm, thankfully. After setting the symlink I haven’t run into the same warning again.
