El Capitan (OS X 10.11.x) doesn't allow /usr/texbin to exist so you must set your GUI Front End applications to use the new link, /Library/TeX/texbin. Please read the information at <http://www.tug.org/mactex/elcapitan.html> and especially the `Updating For El Capitan' document linked on that page. If you haven't installed MacTeX-2015 make sure you also read and follow the directions in the last section of that document.

Finally, update TeXShop to the latest version, 3.59, my clicking on the TeXShop->Check for Updates… menu item.

I may also be worthwhile to join the Mac OS X TeX email list. More information at <http://mactex-wiki.tug.org/wiki/index.php/TeX_on_Mac_OS_X_mailing_list>.

Good Luck,
