@ Richard

Thanks for the explanation of why things work with TeXShop.

@ Berend

I think I have multiple entries for the python path because I have
updated the Enthought Python Distribution a number of times and during
installation, it just adds to the older entries. Maybe I should just
remove the older entries from .bash_profile file.

Regarding ContextMinimals, it is perhaps because I had it twice in my
.bash_profile file. I took out one entry and there is only one in the
path now. The problem is that this one entry still appears before the
/usr/texbin entry. I don't know how to switch the sequence.

@ Peter

I am using the bash shell. I am using ConTeXtMinimals because it fixes
some of the problems that are present in the previous versions.

Can anyone please suggest how to get /usr/texbin before
ConTeXtMinimals in the path for the bash shell. I tried adding
/usr/texbin to the .bash_profile file both at the beginning and the
end. However, that does not help. It adds it again to the path, but
after the ConTeXtMinimals.
