RStudio Connect texlive and latex


Markdown content on RStudio Connect is throwing an error about not being able to find the texmf.cnf file in a variety of directories, see full error below. Running kpsewhich -a texmf.cnf locates it in /usr/local/texlive/2020/texmf-dist/web2c/texmf.cnf. The path to the texlive binary is also included in PATH as follows: echo $PATH

Are we missing some additional settings perhaps?
