General :: Command Path Is In PATH But Bash Does Not Find The Command

Jul 12, 2011

kernel, slackware 12.0
GNU bash 3.1.17


As you can see, /usr/local/bin is in the path. However, bash does not look for nasm in /usr/local/bin.

If I am root, things go well:

Fedora :: Add Path In .bashrc By Commenting Out Old Path And Adding New One - Command Source ~/bashrc

Jun 14, 2011

When I add some path in .bashrc by commenting out old path and adding new one like this:

#EXPORT HOME_PLAY=/home/gem/old_play
EXPORT HOME_PLAY=/home/gem/play

After saving above changes, I enter the command: source ~/.bashrc Now if I do echo $PATH, the path shows both the old PLAY_HOME and new PLAY_HOME. This is really bad and messes up a lot of things in my project. This problem only goes away if I logout or reboot, a rather very long process. What is happening is that the old path is added to new path element and the old path includes the old path element you want to remove.

General :: Command Not Found For All But PWD And Echo - Path Empty

Mar 1, 2011

I logged into my Red Hat Enterprise Linux machine at work (use it for software development) and the primary GUI does not load. Instead, widgets appeared for xclock, xterm, and Firefox. In the terminal, I start typing in commands to try to figure out what's going on, but all commands are not found except pwd and echo. I 'echo $PATH' and that returns just an empty, blank line. 'echo $SHELL' lets me know I'm using cash.

The likely cause was my attempt to install Adobe Reader Firefox plugin yesterday. After it downloaded, I ran the binary but Firefox didn't seem to recognize that I had installed it, so I went into my .cshrc file and added the adobe folder to the path. That didn't seem to work, so I gave up, deleted the binary and the folder I installed to, and removed that directory from the path in the .cshrc file. This last thing (the export PATH line in that file) I'm certain is back exactly as it was before.

I have successfully added the /bin and /usr/bin back to the path from command line via
setenv PATH /usr/bin:/bin
but of course it doesn't stick after reboot nor does it magically load the primary GUI. I'd rather not go through the effort of creating a ticket for our company's Global Service Desk cuz there's no telling how long that could take to resolve. In the meantime, I can't do any programming.

General :: PATH Variable - Command Not Found On New Terminal

Aug 3, 2011

I am using CentOS5.5 & everytime it is showing command not found. If I export the path as below it will be working fine until a reboot. Again same error i.e command not found if I open new terminal. Every time I am exporting as below:

#export PATH=/sbin/:$PATH
#export PATH=/usr/sbin/:$PATH
#export PATH=/usr/bin/:$PATH
#export PATH=/bin/:$PATH

How can I set these permanently as that the paths should automatically be exported for everyone user whenever the system boots. And command completion also should happen for eg. #fdi (press tab), then it should show available options such as fdisk, etc.

Ubuntu :: Short Path On Command Line?

Mar 1, 2011

I have a quick question: how can I make the path short on the console? My problem is that if I descend 10 levels in a directory tree, the path becomes so long that it takes more, than one line of the console window. Is there a way to shorten it, and show only the name of the current directory, without the whole path, i.e., instead of

General :: Move A File To Some Path And Create That Path When It Doesn't Exist?

I use this command:

I'm taking here about tins of directories, thousands of files. I'm looking to find a command that makes me able to move the results above to another path, and to create that path once it doesn't exist like below:


mv /uploads/2010/02/some-file-name.ext /old-files/uploads/2010/02/some-file-name.ext

But I want the executed command to create this path

General :: Forcing An Absolute Path Where A Relative Path Is Expected

Feb 21, 2011

I have a program that takes a relative path as input appends it to a some path string to get the actual path.

Now all I can input is the relative path. So if I want to go one level above my input will be ../mypath.

If I know the depth of the path used internally, I can use .. as many times to go to the root directory and then give the absolute path. But suppose I do not know the depth of the directory, can I construct a relative path string such that it considers it as a relative path. One way could be to have enough .. in the path string so that I can force an absolute path for some maximum depth of path.

Is there some path string syntax that I am not aware of but can achieve this?

Ubuntu :: Specify Network Path Filespec In A Command Line?

Aug 24, 2010

I need to add a network path to a configuration file, but I can't figure out how to write the path.

The command dir \computernamesharename works in a Windows command line.

ls //computername/sharename/ does not work under Linux. ("No such file or directory.") ls smb://computername/sharename/ does not work either.

Nautilus shows the location as smb://computername/sharename/, and I can read and write in the shared directory, so it's mounted and I have access.

So how do I get it to work? How do I specify the path so a command line will recognize it?

Ubuntu :: Make Launcher On Desktop Or In CairoDock - Citing Script Path As Command - Nothing Happens

Apr 15, 2010

I recently downloaded the program cronometer (calorie counter) and I love it. It is run using a script I wrote (its a java program) that is in the directory of the program files (so the program does not appear under any of the application menus). The script functions only when it is in the destination folder. I did make the script executable. A symbolic link to the file also works but again, only when in the same folder. When I try to make a launcher on the desktop or in CairoDock, citing the script path as the command, nothing happens. I have tried it with both "bash" and "sh" prefixes on the command without success. Any ideas on how I could get this launcher to work?
