Endless Run with XeLaTeX on TeXmaker

LaTeX Forum: TeX Live and MacTeX

Add tags Information and discussion about TeX Live distribution for all platforms (Windows, Linux, Mac OS X) and the related MacTeX: installing, updating, configuring

Hello everyone,

A few months ago I managed to configure Texmaker to run with Xelatex to write my CV. For honesty's sake I will say I am not completely sure how...

I have just bought a new laptop and I would like to continue my work with the new texmaker version. However, when I click the run error the compiling starts but it does not end. No guiding message appears in the Messages/log window.

These photos correspond to the "Configure Texmaker" menu:

Please I would be very grateful for any advice.

Try running the command from a terminal; this will help distinguish whether the problem is XeLaTeX or texmaker. From what I can see, your command is
Code: Select all  •  Open in writeLaTeX
xelatex "your file name".tex
(After making sure your terminal's navigated to the folder, of course.)

If xelatex fails, then you know where the problem is. But if it succeeds, then it's a problem with texmaker. If so, try truncating your user command, getting rid of the | %.pdf
