comment Implementing page break in tabularx environment
@Herbert: I stored the sty-file in /usr/local/texlive/2010/texmf/tex/ltablex but. However I get the message "'ltablex.sty' no found."

comment Implementing page break in tabularx environment
How can I set a fix length, instead of \settowidth\labelwidth{{#1}}? I know I could write \begin{my list}{This is the labelwidth which I would like to use throughout my whole document}, but maybe you have a better solution?

comment Implementing page break in tabularx environment
I think description is just perfect, as I have non-enumerated items (see edit). Within my paper I have code-snippets. Following the code-snippet I would like to explain some of the commands of the code in a glossary-like environment, such as description. I just don't see how to customise the description-environment, so that it appears like my tabularx-approach.

Is it possible that \usepackage{calc} is missing in your preamble?

comment Implementing page break in tabularx environment
I used description beforehand but the disadvantage is that the description-environment does not align the text of each item to each other, as for instance the tabular- or tabularx-environment do.

I get the "File 'tabu.sty' not found"-message, when implementing \usepackage{tabu} into my preamble. The problem is: I don't know how to install packages. I run TeXShop Version 2.47 on Mac OS 10.7.4.

Could you please post your tabu-approach using my example. I implemented \usepackage{array, xcolor, colortbl, longtable} in my preamble and added \begin{tabu}{p{2cm}X} Test1 & \LongText \Test2 & \LongText \LongText \end{tabu} to my example but it did not work.
