I get the error "Could not start the command" every time I want to compile a document and I can't explain why. (It has the addition - "pdflatex -synctex=1 -interaction=nonstopmode %.tex" because this process is supposed to run but Texmaker can't find it?) I have deleted and reinstalled both texlive and texmaker (currently I have the texlive-latex-extra package installed).

I have also created a tex Document with an editor and compiling it to pdf using the terminal and it worked fine. So I'm really not understanding what's wrong with my installation.

If anything else is needed to solve this problem I'm happy to give more information.

Thanks in advance!
