I installed TeXLive 2010 on Ubuntu 2010 Desktop 64bit.
I had a simple problem getting TeXLive to work, based on an issue with
the correct settings of the PATH variable.
I did this change in the /etc/profile file adding the path to the TeX
binaries to the beginning of the list in the PATH variable.
Then I installed TeXWorks.
It work nicely unless I triy to acces somthing like 'dinbrief.cls' which
is in the texmf-dist directory tree.
It looks like TeXWork does not do a correct filesearch. I also checked
as many configurations file as there are mentioned in the documentation
but no luc.

To me it looks like either I missed to do some configuration or there is
a simple problem in the configuration of TeXWorks.

Any hint welcome.
