# MacOS – How to install MacTeX 2015 successfully in El Capitan

latexmacos

I upgraded to El Capitan in my new Macbook Air. El Capitan does not allow to use /usr/texbin/ for storage so LaTeX community had to move their files to /Library/TeX.
MacTeX 2015 is not fully compatible with El Capitan.
There is at least some path reconfigurations which has to be done in individual programs described in the guide.
However, I have not succeeded in getting MacTeX fully working in El Capitan.

## Fixing LaTeX in El Capitan

All stages went right but not the following with TeX Live Utility.
I am doing the step in the guide MacTEX-2015 and El Capitan (page 3)

For previous versions of TEX Live Utility open TEX Live
Utility→Preferences and click on the Choose. . . button as in Figure
(4). That opens a file chooser. Type Shift-Cmd-G, enter /Library/TeX
into the dialog box as shown in Figure (5) and then press Return.
Finally DoubleClick on texbin.

I get

## After Unsuccessful Setup-2015.pkg

I run rm ~/Library/Preferences/com.googlecode.mactlmgr.tlu.plist to delete the changes made by the applicaiton Setup-2015.pkg proposed by hakaze, because of infinity loop when starting Tex-live with those changes.
I found the Library/TeX/texbin eventually.
