I can run latex from the command line but none of the tools, BibDesk, TeX Live Utility or TeXShop work.   That it works from the command line tells me I have the path correct.

Did you install MacTeX (see the mactex folder on the DVD)? Assuming you installed MacTeX, did you do both Part 1 and Part 2 of the install process, in that order?

Good Luck,
