Dick, Herb,

I compared the directories on my original MacBook Pro (where TeXShop typesets uneventfully) and the migrated new MacBook Pro. Here are the results.

Original MBP contains


New MBP contains


In the new MBP, the only directory contained in /texmf-dist/ is /doc/, whereas /texmf-dist/ in the old MBP is fully populated with 16 directories, one of which is /tex/.

It seems that the migration assistant did not install the complete directories in the new MBP. Do you agree? Is the fix to delete /texlive/ and reinstall MacTeX2011?

Thanks for your help.
