Description Christian Rose 2003-06-28 05:40:46 EDT
Description of problem:

For a user logging in via SSH and using zsh, it seems that 


doesn't get added to the $PATH, as it is for bash users. This prevents
applications like gv or xterm from being run by zsh users.
This is the $PATH a test user got with bash:


And this is the one the same test user got with zsh:


How reproducible:

Every time.

Steps to Reproduce:

1. Create two users, one with bash as the shell, and one with zsh
2. Login using SSH as the two users
3. Compare the $PATH

Actual results:

The $PATH for the zsh and the bash users differ; the zsh user lacks
/usr/X11R6/bin in the path

Expected results:

The $PATH for both zsh users and bash users should be the same, and include
Comment 1 Jens Petersen 2003-11-25 00:08:12 EST
I'm not able to reproduce this in a fresh FC1 install,
and there haven't been any path related changes since RHL9.

/usr/X11R6/bin is added by /etc/profile which is read by
both bash and zsh.

Closing for now: please re-open if you can still reproduce this.
