### command Latex with TeXstudio doesn't work

Hello,
I use TeXstudio and when I use the command Latex with this code :
\documentclass{article}
\begin{document}
Hello everyone
\end{document}

I obtain this message :
Error: Could not start the command: /usr/texbin/latex -src -interaction=nonstopmode "essai".tex

Can you help me to understand this problem and how can I solve it ?
Thank you very much.

### command Latex with TeXstudio doesn't work

TeXstudio is only an editor. You also need to install a TeX distribution. Recommended TeX distributions would be
• TeX Live for Linux and Windows.
• MiKTeX for Windows (and somehow for Linux and OSX, but almost all Linux users use TeX Live and almost all OSX users use MacTeX)
• MacTeX (which is a TeX Live with better OSX integration) for OSX.

Note: Installation of a TeX distribution is not a subject of mine. The same applies to the TeX Live editor. So usually I will not give any further support at this topic.
My main topics are KOMA-Script and other questions related to my packages. If I reply to any other topic or if you've not yet added a minimal working example, please do not expect any further response. And please don't forget to tag examples as code.

Yes, I have already installed a Tex distribution. My Tex distribution is MacTex.
I will post my question in the topic which concern Tex distribution.
