Success at last! Thank you, Ettore, and thank you, Herbert. I downloaded
the attachments Ettore sent. I opened them in AlphaX and changed the line
endings to unix in all of them. Then I moved them to \etc. (I didn't move
csh.logout and bashrc, because they were identical to the files already
there). I checked paths.d, which contained the TeX file, which had the
content Ettore said it should have. Then I set the settings in the terminal
back to using the default shell. Then I closed the terminal and restarted
it. All of the complaints about missing things stopped. And here is what it
said when I inquired about the path:

so YAY! and thank everybody very much! You have all gone way way way beyond
the call of duty!
