I have used the basic function of RMarkdown before but am now delving into the world of Quarto. When I put together a document I was able to render it as an html but when I tried to render as a pdf it gave me this error...
processing file: FLOURISH_mailer.qmd
output file: FLOURISH_mailer.knit.md
title: FLOURISH Data Summary

command xelatex not found, attempting install

ERROR: tlmgr returned a non zero status code
The system cannot find the path specified.
When I run the quarto list tools
command in the terminal it shows tinytex as being up to data and v2303.05 being installed. My R version is 4.3.0 and my Rstudio version is 2023.03.1 Build 446.
I have also run tinytex::install_tinytex()
and uninstalled tinytex and reinstalled it with the addition of the --update-path
It seems like maybe R is confused in finding the file path to some of the tinytex material but I am unsure of how to remedy it. Many of the other forums online related to similar problems have seemed pretty inconclusive so hoping that maybe there is another solution out there!
