I have tiny_tex and I did tinytex::install something...
It works when I knit to HTML.
I can Knit to PDF every time when I use Jupyter notebook.
! Package inputenc Error: Unicode character ^^V (U+0016) (inputenc) not set up for use with LaTeX. Try other LaTeX engines instead (e.g., xelatex) if you are using pdflatex. See https://bookdown.org/yihui/rmarkdown-cookbook/latex-unicode.html Error: LaTeX failed to compile a4.tex. See https://yihui.org/tinytex/r/#debugging for debugging tips. See a4.log for more info. Execution halted
Those error msgs are not immediately actionable for someone who just wanted a pdf and doesn't care about how it works under the hood.
I cannot release the Rmd file yet because it's the solution to a course project.
