My Apple friends says that they cannot compile LaTeX. I don't have a Mac at hand to test what the problem is.
How can I get something like
pdflatexto get LaTeX compiled on a Mac such as a MacBook or iMac?
What about iPad? How can I compile LaTeX on an iPad?
I suggested my friends to compile things on their servers and use Sshfs, more here, but they have problems getting MacPorts. I am now trying to find some local way of doing things.
