Thanks for the several comments I received. Here are some answers.

I installed everything listed using the i-Installer.

I tried to run `sudo texhash'  but I get 'sudo: texhash: command not 
found'. is there something to be done before? I am not using Terminal 
very often.

Where is located the '~/.MacOSX/' folder? If this is in my home 
directory, I could not find it.
The commands 'env | grep -i path' and  'updmap --listmaps'  receive as 
answers 'command not found'.

Do you have other suggestions?
