What's 'doc2unix' ? Is it written by you? if so you need to manually add it so that it can be invoked from the console

see your thread in slax forum, there's a good explanation

Welcome to LQ!

For start create /home/you/bin directory, then add/copy "doc2unix" executable to it.
Then add /home/you/bin to the PATH by editing .bashrc file in your /home directory and adding export PATH=$PATH:/home/you/bin: line to it.

That's for start. Search, learn. For start go here.

All of this if "doc2unix" is not already there. I don't use Slax.

whereis doc2unix
to see if it's in the PATH.

env | grep PATH
to see directories being used for executables.
