Strange path...


/usr//bin:/bin:/usr/bin::/usr/local/bin:/usr/X11R6/bin:/usr/games:/home/bjornkri/bin

I'm not entirely sure where I can fix that.. It's just the first part of the path that's buggered, it seems. Any help would be very much appreciated.

.bash_profile has the following:

PATH=$PATH:$HOME/bin

Am I right to presume that the error comes from somewhere else? Where is the $PATH that $HOME/bin is appended to set?

Well it should still work no problem, but if you want to fix, have a look at files such as

/etc/profile
/etc/bashrc
/etc/rc.local
/etc/rs.sysinit
~/.profile
/etc/profile.d/*
