Ubuntu is my OS, and I have the Latex-Suite plugin installed.
I'm trying to get pdflatex to output a .pdf file instead of a .dvi file, but it continues to output only a .dvi file (along with .log and .aux files, which I realize are unavoidable). I am also trying to output to an existing ./test directory, which it is also failing to do. Here are my settings (I realize there are probably redundancies, I was pretty much just trying everything I could find):
" Latex-Suite ---------------------------- " Starting with Vim 7, the filetype of empty .tex files defaults to " 'plaintex' instead of 'tex', which results in vim-latex not being loaded. " The following changes the default filetype back to 'tex': let g:tex_flavor = 'latex' " Setting viewing rules based on document type let g:Tex_ViewRule_dvi = 'xdvi' let g:Tex_ViewRule_ps = 'ghostview' let g:Tex_ViewRule_pdf = 'xpdf' let g:Tex_FormatDependency_pdf = 'dvi,ps,pdf' let g:Tex_defaultTargetFormat = 'pdf' let g:Tex_CompileRule_pdf = 'pdflatex --interaction=nonstopmode --output-directory=./test --output-format=pdf $*'
I'd appreciate any help (or letting me know if this question is better suited for the Latex StackExchange)!
