Re: SUDO ISSUE

After installing a new product, you need to make sure it is in your PATH, or you need to use the absolute path.

Hi Dennis,

Re: SUDO ISSUE

Edit /etc/PATH. The file contains one long line of text, listing the directories to search for commands. The directory names are separated by colon characters (":").
Add ":/usr/local/bin" to the end of the line.

Logout, then login again. Now you should be able to use the sudo command (and any other commands placed in /usr/local/bin) without typing the full path.

If you have set yourself a customized PATH environment variable in your ~/.profile or equivalent, you may also have to modify your customizations accordingly.

>Can you please suggest?

I did. You need to update your PATH settings. Probably in ~/.profile, as MK suggested.
