On (1), thanks , now I understand.

On (2), it returns “\RequirePackage{\pst at ColorPackage}
I am using TeCShop Version 3.87


I think you misunderstood item 2. You need to open the Terminal application which is in the Utilities folder (Shft-Cmd-U in Finder). Then type the line

kpsewhich shellesc.sty

in the Terminal window and press return (you can Copy/Paste it from the email if you wish). It should return a line like


if it is found, otherwise nothing (and a new prompt for a command will come up).

I'm trying to determine is you actually are missing the file.

One more thing... let me know what the Path setting for (pdf)TeX is in the Engine tab of TeXShop->Preferences menu item.

Good Luck,
