Why do you want pagemaker to type a TeX document?  What you need is a
text editor in which you input your textual data marked up in LaTeX
and save the file as <filename.tex>.  Open a command shell or terminal
window and issue the command:

 pdflatex <filename>

That is all you need to do,   the output will be filename.pdf which
you might open in any pdf viewer or print using a printer.  For this
process to happen, you need to have installed TeX and friends in your

Please note that Pagemaker, which is a different typesetting system
has nothing to do with TeX or LaTeX nor can it understand TeX markup.
