comment xticklabels misaligned
@Jake There is one problem with your approach. If you lower the width to, for instance 6cm, the tick labels get to close/overlap. How must one change your code so that LaTeX only plots such a number of tick labels so that they do not overlap. (e.g. with width=6cm it would be better to have only {42,44,...,1} as ticklabels.

comment Changing enumeration of divisions to roman numbers
The space seems to be larger than \enspace but it looks better now. Many thanks!

comment Changing enumeration of divisions to roman numbers
I suppose that the distance between the number and the chapter's title is one space (\thespecialchapter\ \fi#1). Do know the exact spacing between the number and the title for the chapter-environment?

comment Using same margin-settings in acronym as in listoffigures
If one changes the documentclass the value of 1.5em may change. So instead of setting a fix value the might be the possibility to have a dynamic value: Is it possible to retrieve the indention from the listoffigures-environment so that the indention of my list of abbreviations will be always the same as in listoffigures no matter which changes will be made in the preamble?

comment Changing enumeration of divisions to roman numbers
In the toc everything is numbered as I wanted it to be but the headings of \listof... remain unnumbered. I guess one must change the \chapter*-environment, so that these are numbered with roman numbers. How would it be possible to implement this in your code?

comment Changing enumeration of divisions to roman numbers
One important note: one can write \documentclass[liststotocnumbered,bibtotocnumbered]{scrbook} to make lists as listoffigures, listoftables and bibliography appear in the toc numbered. As egreg mentioned all these lists are embedded in the \chapter*-environment. With liststotocnumbered,bibtotocnumbered LaTeX seems to change the environments of these list to \chapter. Therefor, to make egreg's approach feasible one must delete liststotocnumbered,bibtotocnumbered.

comment Package not found
During installation I can change the folders where I would like to have them (e.g. /Applications/NewFolder). I thought that within TeXShop all paths/directories for packages will be set to this folder automatically. I installed everything again with default settings and now it works.

comment Package not found
I have kind of the same problem as OP. A couple of days ago I installed the latest version of MaxTex (from tug.org/mactex). I chose to move everything which comes with the pkg-file to /Applications/MacTex/ (all packages are in the same folder). When I try to compile one of my tex-files I get the message: "/usr/texbin/pdflatex not found." This is where I found pdflatex: /Applications/MacTex/texlive/2012/bin/universal-darwin/pdftex. All this is a bit odd, since this should not happen according to the Max-Tex-FAQs (see AT.01)

comment The meaning of the percent sign in LaTeX coding
@JosephWright You're right. You can close the thread (btw: can I close my threads myself?). When I typed in my question, tex.stackexchange.com/questions/7453/… did not appear as a possible answer.

@DanielE.Shub Please see edit. I know, this makes hardly any difference but that's how it must be. My school told me so.
