I actually knew this before, but managed to get things mixed up.
Thanks a lot for clearing it up for me.
This brought my attention to the first log line 'unrecognized option --
shell escape--synctex=1'. The option came from the TexShop engine
preferences for pdflatex. I then deleted '--synctex=1', to see what
would happen, and what happened was that the log reported '\write18
enabled' and that Sysquake for LaTeX started working. Absolutely great!
Then I was worried that there is maybe something else wrong with my
installation, since the synctex option doesn't work. I looked through
old mails on the list about synctex=1. This led me to try out some
variations, including putting in a space betwee '--shell escape' and
'--synctex=1'. Now this works as well. Take away the space, and the
problem is back.
Since the preference is, or at one time was, a TeXShop default (I
don't think I had meddled with it before), maybe others have the same
Many thanks again, to Herb, Michael and Alain.
