Knitting error pdflatex: command not found

QUICK Help im trying to knit and this error keeps popping up

output file: ECOM_.knit.md

! sh: pdflatex: command not found

Error: LaTeX failed to compile ECOM_.tex. See The R package tinytex - Helper Functions to Manage TinyTeX, and Compile LaTeX Documents - Yihui Xie | 谢益辉 for debugging tips. See ECOM_.log for more info.

We probably need to see some code. We need a reproducible example (reprex)

Have you installed a LaTeX distribution in your system? For rmarkdown, tinytex is recommended, you would need to install the R package and then the TinyTex distribution.

install.packages('tinytex')
tinytex::install_tinytex()
