Need some help


 Hi there,
Being the editor for the Dutch translation of the manual, I followed all the instructions on:

       Getting started as an Author or Editor

To work on the project, you'll need to know how to do a few things: etc.
I have done everything as instructed, but the final test failed: the making of the ubuntu-manual-nl.pdf.
When I give the command I get the following message:

It appears that you do not have TeX Live 2009 installed.  Please follow the
installation instructions on the Ubuntu Manual wiki to install TeX Live 2009:
I am sure there is no need to install all the files again (it took 1 1/2 hours).
I think the problem is this:

Post-install: setting the PATH

After the installation finishes, you must add the TeX Live binary directory to your PATH---except on Windows, where the installer takes care of this. For example:
Use the syntax for your shell, your installation directory, and your binary platform name instead of i386-linux. But what should I type here? I do have /usr/local/texlive/2010/bin/i386-linux/ with many files here.

Or is this the solution:
After chattting with nisshh I understand I have to set symlinks (or something like that) manually. But he could not remember how. Can anyone help me on this? Kevin? I know you told me yesterday you would make the pdf for me, and I really appreciate that. But I do not want to bother you all the time with this. It would be much better if I can generate the pdf myself, because I am sure the Dutch translation is not yet 100% correct; it still needs reviewing.

Thanks in advance,
