The following problem does not occur when I run from terminal, but I would like to automate through editor external program calls.
gedit and Texmaker external program calls to metapost work fine, but under certain circumstances (b/etex ) a program, makempx, is called by metapost and I get the error:
sh: makempx: not found
and the required file cannot be made. makempx is in the same /bin folder as mpost which ran in the first place.
This is under Ubuntu Fiesty, TexLive2007, and metapost 1.00 (most recent), required PATH is set in .bashrc and specific configs are set. Again, when I process the file from terminal all goes well.
