    Hello all,

    I've got a mac running 10.6 and a couple of 'standard user' accounts. Under these accounts most commands in terminal are not recognized, as they should. However, I would like to be able to run Wine under these accounts. How can I make certain commands recognized under a standard user account?

    Thanks in advance,

    Make sure the folder which contains the Wine executables are in the users' path.

    Just in case you don't already know, typically the path should be setup in the ~/.bash_profile folder. For example I have the following line in my .bash_profile:

    export PATH=/opt/local/bin:/opt/local/sbin:$PATH

    There is also a system-wide /etc/profile, but I have never experimented with it under OS X, although I have used a similar facility under linux. You might be able to put the path update there so you only have to do it once for all users.
