Cantor not Rendering LaTeX at all

Hello all!

I am currently trying to use Cantor on Linux Mint 17 KDE, and it is not rendering LaTeX code at all, even though there is the option for it. I have installed texlive and texlive-base, in case you're wondering.

Here is the full terminal output of running Cantor in a terminal:
Object::disconnect: Unexpected null parameter
cantor(29931)/kdeui (kdelibs): Attempt to use QAction "" with KXMLGUIFactory! 
Bus::open: Can not get ibus-daemon's address. 
IBusInputContext::createInputContext: no connection to ibus-daemon 
This is pdfTeX, Version 3.1415926-2.5-1.40.14 (TeX Live 2013/Debian)
 restricted \write18 enabled.
entering extended mode
This is dvips(k) 5.993 Copyright 2013 Radical Eye Software (
/usr/bin/dvips: DVI file can't be opened: /tmp/kde-ACCOUNT/cantor/j29931.dvi: No such file or directory
So far, what I have been able to gather from the above message is that Cantor is creating the LaTeX files (.tex), but not compiling them into dvi files, as I gather from the last line. It does work, however, on a computer running Ubuntu GNOME 14.04.1 without problems, even though Cantor is a KDE application.

Could you people please lend me a hand in this?

Thanks in advance!

I managed to fix it. It was apparently a case of installing texlive-pstricks. I simply went and looked and the LaTeX programs installed on the computer that worked and installed those on my computer.
