For reasons I am not sure of (which included a reboot of my laptop and trying 
Kirk) the LaTex to PDF now seems to work.

What I notice is that the .pdf which supposedly written

        Output written on gm-L-Template-DIsc_p-instance.pdf (1 page, 167323 

cannot be found, except that it is only testable after a PDF named "Untitled" 
and containing the output has opened within the Mac "Preview" application.

Therefore I wonder if the following explanation is correct:

- the script writes the PDF
- the PDF is passed to [printer or application] --> which accounts for an 
untitled PDF "Untitled" opening in my Preview app
- the written-to-disk PDF is immediately deleted (which is why I cannot find it)
