This is apparently a path issue. Here the brief mail-exchange between Alejandro and I:

Hello Michael,

are you running ipe from the command line (Terminal), or from the ipe application? Try running ipe from the command line. The point is that ipe calls pdflatex and assumes that this is in the current path. However, the path is not set for OSX applications. There is a workaround for this in the ipe app bundle, but things may have changed regarding path handling in OSX mountain lion.

Hope this helps (I can unfortunately only guess, since I only have OSX Lion).

ipe was working well with OS X Lion. I updated the OS to Mountain Lion and
updated Macports but I am getting an error with pdflatex "There was an error
trying to run Pdflatex".

Do I have to install pdflatex again?

Thank you,

Alejandro Morales
