Thanks for the hints. Let me summarize some information.
I installed TeXLive from a local copy of the DVD contents using
Luckily I could use the defaults except removing some documentation and
languages I do not use.
After that I installed - oops, may this be the problem -
with XeTeX extensions and
TeXWorks itself runs. I can use the KOMA-letter template and write nice
letters. But when I change to dinbrief.cls it fails.
Please note the following:
$ kpsewhich dinbrief.cls
$ locate dinbrief.cls
$ locate kpsewhich
and the path:
$ echo $PATH
