Yes, that was an issue, thanks for the hint! Checked it and it did not
contain the relevant paths. So I added
(setq exec-path (append exec-path '("/usr/texbin/")))
(setq exec-path (append exec-path '("/opt/local/bin"))) because
pdf2dsc could not be found (not startet in sh)
(setenv "PATH" (concat "/opt/local/bin:" (getenv "PATH"))) because of gs
(setenv "PATH" (concat "/usr/texbin:" (getenv "PATH"))) because of
latex and pdflatex
But somehow it seems strange me that I have to explicitly add them, isn't?
Nevertheless I don't get preview to run, it just display the typical
No error message was produced. The last snippet is

and the last lines:

So it seems there goes something wrong during the last steps...
Has anybody else encounter the same problem? And thanks for your patience!
