Recently, yesterday, Dick Koch wrote, that MacTeX installation could  
fail with PATH on Leopard, Mac OS X 10.5. An update will be available  

The latex executable could most probably be found in /usr/texbin. 'ls  
-l /usr/texbin/latex' on the command line in Terminal would reveal  
this. Otherwise 'which latex' could show whether an incorrect PATH is  
really the culprit.

To change PATH we need to know which shell you are using – unless you  
are willing to go the more clever way with ~/.MacOSX/ 
environment.plist. This file's syntax is independant of your shell's  



Know thyself. Need help, call GOOGLE.
