[PC-BSD Testing] Running program from runports and KDE menu?

[Jeff at pcbsd]/home/Jeff(10)% csh
[Jeff at pcbsd]/home/Jeff(10)% runports /usr/local/bin/pencil
runports: Command not found.
[Jeff at pcbsd]/home/Jeff(11)% echo $PATH
/sbin:/bin:/usr/sbin:/usr/bin:/usr/games:/Programs/bin:/PCBSD/local/bin:/PCBSD/local/sbin:/PCBSD/local/kde4/bin:/usr/local/sbin:/usr/local/bin:/usr/local/kde4/bin:/home/Jeff/bin
[Jeff at pcbsd]/home/Jeff(12)%

I'm pretty sure I was csh anyway.  Isn't that the default shell?

/usr/local/bin is in the path.  Something is screwy...

Ahh, so its "runports" which can't be found.

Try this:

switch to csh

% csh
% runports /usr/local/bin/pencil

Also, send me the output of "echo $PATH"
