Generating Sphinx PDF on MacOS X
Posted: | More posts about sphinx rst latex pdflatex pdf
Latex distribution is known to be very big on any platform. The MacTex package is 2.5GB download. Fortunately there's a minimal package, BasicTex which is around 100MB. That's perfect and seem to include all needed for Sphinx to generate the pdf.
But after running
make latexpdf in my Sphinx doc, got errors about missing sty.
! LaTeX Error: File `wrapfig.sty' not found. Type X to quit or <RETURN> to proceed, or enter new name. (Default extension: sty)
Searching around, lot of solutions mention about install
texlive-late-extra package (on Debian/Ubuntu). Until I found that TexLive also has a packages manager called
tlmgr. First attempt of running
tlmgr complain about itself require an update:-
sudo tlmgr update --self
After that I need to install the following packages:-
sudo tlmgr install titlesec framed threeparttable wrapfig multirow collection-fontsrecommended
And Sphinx successfully generated the PDF.
