I executed all commands listed in both mails and it indeed seems to be a
sebastians-mbp:~ kupfer$ ls -alF /usr/local

drwxr-xr-x 4 root wheel 136 10 Dez 15:48 share
drwxr-xr-x 4 root wheel 136 10 Dez 15:48 texlive
I ran the disk utility and there are way more errors than there should be
(imho). Unfortunately it didn't fixed the wrong permissions for ./bin so I
did it by myself. I guess there is an error in the installation script (I
mean it asks for admin privileges) or it's parallels fault (cause there are
some files inside this folder, too).
I manually changed /usr/local/bin to 755 (drwxr-xr-x 42 504 wheel 1428
10 Dez 15:49 bin) and by accident /usr/bin, too but I guess this won't
hurt? Atleast disk utility wasn't complaining after my heart attack-check
:D ... Why is it owned by user 504 and what is it? I mean it's working, but
Now I can executed "gs" from anywhere and it's working and texstudio was
able to compile the files! Texpad is now working, too and automatically
detected the ghostscript install!
Thanks for your help guys!
