You say that I need to put a text file with three lines (and an empty one) in the scripts folder. What should I name this file and how I would execute it? I know that the file has to be made executable. Does this file need to be executed after each update of MacTeX?
You don't have to create that executable script (I assume you are talking about the script, which is a simple text file, with the lines
sudo -H mktexlsr
sudo -H updmap-sys
that I save in /usr/local/texlive/texmf-local/scripts) but you do need to execute the two commands (i.e., the two lines with `sudo -H`) ONCE when you install a completely new MacTeX distribution (e.g., MacTeX-2012, MacTeX-2013, MacTeX-2014 [which doesn't exist yet]). Once things are set up for a distribution using tlmgr or TeX Live Utility to update that distribution takes care of everything automatically.
If you wish to save the file as an executable in the directory I gave above so you don't have to remember those commands simply give it a convenient name e.g., setupmapfiles.sh, drop it into /usr/local/texlive/texmf-local/scripts and run
sudo chmod 755 /usr/local/texlive/texmf-local/scripts/setupmapfiles.sh
(assuming you gave it that name) to make it executable. From then on when you install a completely new Mac TeX distribution you run
sudo -H /usr/local/texlive/texmf-local/scripts/setupmapfiles.sh
ONCE after the install and you are set for another year or so.
