When I run EtreCheck on my machine, I get this warning in red, under the “Launch Daemons” section:
[loaded] comp.text.tex.distribution.Helper.plist (2016-08-21) [Support] - /Library/PreferencePanes/TeXDistPrefPane.prefPane/Contents/Library/LaunchServices/comp.text.tex.distribution.Helper: Executable not found!
Etre Check explains the launch daemons section this way: "These are low-level modifications to your operating system that always run in the background. It is common for software to use 3rd party launch daemons. However, this software is always running in the background."
It appears that something is looking for or pointing to an executable that isn’t there (PrefPane, I’m guessing). When I look in /Library/PreferencePanes I find no reference to TeXDistPrefPane, even with invisibles showing. Does anyone have any idea what’s going on here? What would be pointing to an executable that isn’t there? Where is the comp.text.tex.distribution.Helper.plist?
