Can someone please give me a guide of how to get a fully featured (la)tex installation working on mac os x. This is, and editor compiler, automatic package installation. I have tried to install something called gwtex, but I can't seem to get it working. So I would really appriciate if I could get some help.

Thank you.

When mounting the .dmg, I get the error seen in the image which I uploaded.

Does anyone know why this happens?

Edit:
Apparantely I can't upload .tiff files. So I will just convert it.

It appears that you have accidentally associated .dmg disk image files with QuickTime. Associate them with either Disk Utilities or DiskImageMounter instead.
Nope, that doesn't seem to be the case. Because, I can mount other .dmg files just fine.

Btw, I tried re-downloading the file, still same problem.

I just downloaded the 722 MB MacTeX.dmg disk image file with no problems. I have two recommendations:

1. Open the .dmg file in Disk Utilities and try to repair it.

2. Restart your Mac in Single-User Mode:
a. Restart.
b. While starting up, press the "S" key.
c. At the command prompt, type fsck -fy. This runs file system check.
d. When you get back the command prompt, type exit or logout.
