    Hi, I just installed "putty" from homebrew. When I type "brew list" it shows putty in the list of installed programs. But when enter "putty" in the command line, I'm getting "-bash: putty: command not found". Any ideas?

    You should either use the full path
    Code:
    /usr/local/bin/putty
    or add /usr/local/bin to your shell's path (By modifying the shell's rc file).

    You should reinstall putty with '--with-gtk+' option.
    Code:
    brew uninstall putty
    brew install putty --with-gtk+
    
    It needs Xqwarts.

    Cool! I use Putty on my XP machine, didn't even know it could be used on a Mac.

    Now I gotta figure out what Putty can do that you can't do in Terminal...
