I believe there may be a typo in the PATH line.

Instead of "x86_64-linux$PATH", you may actually want
"x86_64-linux:$PATH".  (i.e., put a colon before $PATH).

 From a shell prompt, you can type "echo $PATH" to verify the PATH

I agree with the earlier poster: start by taking the editor out of the
picture.  From a command line, verify whether

    pdflatex --version

indicates you've got the correct TexLive distribution.  If so, try
typesetting your document from the command line

    pdflatex YOUR-DOCUMENT.tex
