this worked!! Thanks.

I must have screwed up when following these instructions in FAQ QM.10:
	• Upgrading to Snow Leopard may remove /usr/texbin from your default PATH. If so, fix the problem by creating a text file named TeX with contents

and then moving this file to /etc/paths.d. One way to create the file is to use "cat" in Terminal as follows:
cd Desktop 
cat > TeX 

and then type control-D to complete the command. Now move this file to /etc/paths.d as follows
sudo cp TeX /etc/paths.d
