Thanks Max Nikulin

Then I think I will behave like grown people and use LaTeX syntax, previewing it on HTML exports, cause it gives no errors compared to the problematic PDF exports.

Thanks again, best regards

I never considered HTML as a viable preview option for LaTeX equation, 
so thanks for the idea. In the past working LaTeX was anyway required 
since otherwise latex2html perl script could not generate images for 
equations. Web changed since that times (some sites created by people 
unaware of LaTeX even required activeX to display math).

Maybe your problem with PDF export is not so serious, e.g. pdflatex 
binary is not in PATH or some LaTeX package is missed. Have you tried to 
export to LaTeX file and to run pdflatex from command line to get error 
messages?
