Angry sudo: readme : command not found


Hi All
while sudoing an application command "readme" i get the following message

sudo : readme : command not found

The readme command is in /opt/ecs/sbin which is not in my PATH
There is an entry in sudoers file /etc/sudoers for this command .
This command "readme" can be executed by all user.
The command works when the obsulute path is provided .
(viz "sudo /opt/ecs/sbin/readme")

But i need to make it work with "sudo readme"

Please advice
Your response will be a great help.

Regards
Vishal Thorat

Symlink it to a location in all users PATH such as /usr/bin :
ln -sf /opt/ecs/sbin/readme /usr/bin

And then call it with:
sudo readme

See if that works.

What is "readme"?

Cool

Or you could possibly add /opt/ecs/sbin to your PATH.

or is it in the current path, in which case you're just missing "./"
