Currently your PATH in /etc/profile probably reads:

export PATH

You can add the directory for latex by changing it to read:

export PATH

I would suggest you use vi to add the path, but that is just my  
choice in text editors. In which case you enter on a Terminal prompt:

sudo vi profile

Enter your admin password when prompted. Then in vi press i to enter  
INSERT mode. Use the arrow keys to move the cursor to where you want  
to enter the text. Type in the additional text and hit ESC. Then  
type :wq which will write the changes to disk, then quit vi.

You will need to restart the application, but not the computer.
