[tex-live] Where is the root dir of my Tex Live installation

Cannot say much about the tl error, but it is not a good idea to add the path change to bashrc. If, when installed, you start to via a menu, then the shell to uses to call latex will not involve bash, and thus your path addition is ineffective. If your system is valid debian/Ubuntu derivative, then make your path change in /etc/environment instead (remember to back up that file). log out for the change to be effective).

Btw where does it say that you should add the path change to bashrc?

I have now deinstalled all tex-components I could find.
The basic installation using the package manager.

After the computer was "clean" I installed TEX Live from the dvd (iso file).
After that I changed the path in .bashrc .

Then I installed Texmaker, first from Ubuntu Package Manager, but that
failed at the end. After deinstallation I tryed the installation from
downloaded .deb package

These errors appeared also after restart and new installation:

Does anyone know what I have to do?
Any help is welcome...
