Thanks für explaining. I've run your script and it's created
.MacOSX/environment.plist in my home directory. Is there anything else I
have to add to evironment.plist now? The DISPLAY field contains ":0".
I've not configured X11 before...
I also have found out that I can start xdvi from within the X11 terminal
giving the full pathname /usr/texbin/xdvi-xaw.bin . It works fine, and
if this is the way to run xdvi on my machine I could do with it. 8-)
However, I wonder whether there is a way to start xdvi from within
Apples standard terminal, too?
