Specifically on mavericks (10.9). how to set $PATH on OS X so Sublime can use it? I am trying to use a sublime package that expects a command mdtool to be on my path. Apple seems to have yet again changed the mechanism by which GUI apps get the PATH from the OS. I’ve tried a variety of things including /etc/path.d . My path is fine from the bash shell, but that makes no difference for gui apps. I am launching Sublime with quicksilver, which afaik is the same as launching by the Finder.
A colleague ran into the same problem some days ago, he told me he discovered this package that fix the issue:
hope it helps
Another possibility is to start the editor with the
subl command in a terminal. Ths picks ob the path of the shell you start it in. (At least it does for me, OS X 10.8.)
See http://www.sublimetext.com/docs/3/osx_command_line.html for how to install and use the subl command.
thanks for the tips both of you!
