I don't know if times is included in Basictex. According to l2tabuen  
the \usepackage{times} statement should no longer be used. Replace it  
by \usepackage{mathptmx}\usepackage[scaled=.90]{helvet} 

If that does not work, please report back with the error message, as  
we can then tell you which part is missing. Font installation is no  
fun though, and the easiest and fastest solution is to install Mactex.
