This note is requesting help for getting TeXworks to work on a Mac  
(Tiger + TeX Distribution showing in System Preferences + TexShop  
runs smoothly).

I did that.

The instructions about the libraries are:

1) On an unzipped folder: "into ;Library;Frameworks"
I created a folder inside the "Library" folder, named it "Frameworks"  
and put in it the files inside the unzipped folder.

2) On another unzipped folder: "into ;usr;local;lib"
I took this to mean: find the folder "usr" and inside of it the  
folder "local" and inside of that a folder "lib" and put the files  
from the arriving folder into that.  I noted that I have no "usr"  
folder (and might that be the problem? lacking other files?).  So I  
created one inside the "Library" and followed up; TeXworks did not  
run (it refused to launch).  I created such a folder inside my own  
user folder (neighbor to the Library folder), that did not work either.

What is to be done?

Thank you, in advance, for your advice.
