cd "/Applications/BaKoMa TeX/.bakoma/BaKoMa"
sudo ../bin/MacOS/mklsr
cd ../texmf
sudo ../bin/MacOS/mklsr
../bin/MacOS/tnswhich '!Finish'

Limitations of MAC version:
  • TeX4HT not included - Export HTML4 isn't supported (use Export SVG + HTML).
  • Package Manager not included - automatical package installation works well.
  • Key binding is some compromise between Windows and Mac conventions. It is tag for following improvements.
