You aren't using the csh or tcsh. You are using something else.

try "echo $SHELL" to see which one.

it is bash..

birjodh 06-06-2007 06:04 PM

wats the alternate??

Do you want to use tcsh/csh or do you want to continue using bash? If you want to continue using bash, type:

export $PATH

If you want to use tcsh/csh, then you will need to change your shell to the one you want.


chsh -s tcsh

1. Try using actual English

2. It would help to know what distro you're using

ok.. i am using bash only but here is the output on

/home/tupac/codeploy:/usr/kerberos/bin:/usr/local/bin:/usr/bin:/bin:/usr/X11R6/bin:/home/tupac/bin': not a valid identifier

and when i am trying to change the shell to tcsh or csh it is showing that shell has been changed succesfully but when i am checking it with echo $SHELL it is still bash..

Sorry, when you change your shell, it will only take effect on your next login. Log out and back in after you run chsh.

thanks a lot. it worked:)

It seems I was mistaken as well as regard to the export. It isn't necessary in bash.
