Hi everyone!

I have a strange problem. I run fluxbox ontop of kde (or at the side, whatever :? ) and I cannot start kde apps from my menu in fluxbox. I think it has something to do with the PATH variable. But the thing is that the PATH has two different values if I look at it in aterm or in Eterm.
(Eterm PATH has the kde-bin path)

Is this normal?

Shouldn't the PATH be read from the /etc/profile.env file on startup?
(and thereby be system-wide?)

I'm a linux newbie as you probably understand, but I really want to learn how linux ticks...


Thanks for your time.

I haven't figured ot so far why fluxbox doesn't look into the kde bins, so I just added the complete path to the kde apps into the fluxbox menu (it's /usr/kde/3/bin/app-name )

--of course there should be a easier way to let fluxbox know where the kde apps reside....

Ok, I'll do that too. :wink:
Until this path thingy is figured out.

Thank you, jay.
