I have added /usr/bin; /usr/local/bin; /usr/sbin; /usr/local/sbin to my PATH but I still get command not found on certain commands that root has no problem finding. What am I missing here?

root probably uses stuff in /bin and /sbin.

Yeah add /sbin. Although I'll throw in the obligatory comment that the */sbin directories are only in root's path for a reason. Normal users shouldn't be using them. There I said it.

Fair enough/ Thanks for the info, /bin and /sbin didn't even cross my mind for some dumb reason.
