Hi Herbert,

I use it daily!

BasicTeX is included for those that do not yet have LaTeX installed on their Mac. However, Cassiopeia can work with any LaTeX distribution. One just has to edit the two scripts


that have content like

setenv PATH /usr/local/teTeX/bin/powerpc-apple-darwin-current:...
pdflatex $1
bibtex $1
pdflatex $1
pdflatex $1

and add the path to the bin directory of the LaTeX distribution in use.

Best wishes,
