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

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?
