different paths


Why is my $PATH in text mode much longer than my $PATH in X.
When I call an application form an X command prompt like "kedit", the system can not find it but it can find it in text mode.
How can I make the my $PATH in X the same as in text mode?

I am using SuSE 9.2 Professional

Sounds like your .bash_profile is not executed while you log in in a graphical mode. Check it. You may e.g. put a line like

echo "we are in .bash_profile"

into the file and look whether the message appears in .xsession-errors.

How do you log in? Do you use kdm (kde standard login manager)?

Best,

Ott
