[OS X TeX] TeXShop stopped compiling after update

Go to


About three lines from the top, a link leads to two documents about
“LaTeX and El Capitan.”

The solution is to

	a) Install at least one of BasicTeX-2015 and MacTeX-2015 (but
	afterward, you can switch back to your current TeX if you wish)


	b) Upgrade TeXShop to the current 3.54.

TeXShop will then automatically reconfigure itself. You may already have
done a) or b), but I predict that you have not done both of them.

Si éste es el caso, ve a la página web de TeXShop y sigue las instrucciones para (re)instalar TeXLive. Otra posiblidad es que una ruta de búsqueda esté mal configurada en las preferencias de TeXShop. Esto puede ocurrir si estás usando la distribución de teTeX de fink.
